I went to see this for the Steven Wright short, and was mildly amused ("clamshell?"), and found Moore's to be booooring. Mike Leigh's short about the duke, lord, or whatever he was, was absolutely wonderful. A great tight story that was very engrossing. I really wanted to know this guy's psyche, and it delivered. It was my first Leigh (har!) and I've seen as much of his other stuff as I can find. BRING IT TO DVD PLEASE!
