You grow up in the suburbs, you picture a life for yourself, right? A life of danger, late nights in smokey Jazz clubs, beautiful women everywhere. There's Janda Rhineheart with A Hot Cup of Paris, 1939. - You're listening to Night Duty in Saint Jose's hospital. - Only then you *do* grow up, and you're not living that life. You're poor. You teach in a school during the day, and of course you like it. Though you can barely find time to play the bloody trumpet.

B Monkey, entertained but didn't add anything to my weekend. The London Film Festival gave the World Premiere of this movie which must have been shot before My Best Friend's Wedding when Rupert Everett was still an untouchable (according to Radford, Everett paid for and shot his own screen test because no one would give him a chance). He worked well as the out of it drug pusher whose life B Monkey is entangled with. The two leads, Jared Harris and Asia Argento work well together but this is still not enough to make the movie fully work. The London locations look great (even if with the usual cinematic ploy unconnected parts of town seem to be next to each other).
Overall I may not have gained much from seeing this film but I enjoyed the experience.
