Near the beginning, the chap with the glass eye proudly announces "Look at me, I made it. And I've got a glass eye". Both eyes then swivel to look at Pete, then away, showing us that it is a contact lens. See more »
OK. Now you're no longer a virgin, now you've done your first sale, it's your exams. Go through the rules.
Rule one: Give no quota. Two: Good breakfast. Three: Keep back cocked. Four: Seconds lead to sales. Five: Act like a spent knob.
What's rule number six?
Oh, come on. What?
Rule number six! There are no rules. You've passed.

From the reaction at the screening at this year's Toronto Int'l Film Festival, "Vacuuming..." and "Strumpet" - two new films from Danny Boyle, are instant crowd favourites.
Danny Boyle is back, after slumming it with "A Life Less Ordinary" and "The Beach." He's in familiar territory here, similar to that of "Trainspotting." We see working class angst, social realism and a healthy dose of the fantastic.
It's gritty, it's dirty, and it's incredibly entertaining. Boyle manages to find gold in the gutters of the slums.
He's also assembled a fine cast of actors, including Timothy Spall and Christopher Eccleston (in "Strumpet.").
Perhaps the biggest triumph lies in Boyle's ability to use digital video to his advantage. The possibilities of the medium are fully displayed here, and the result is breathtaking.
One hopes that Boyle will stick to what he does best and leave Hollywood behind him!
