“Gary Oldman” by Max Whitaker

English actor Gary Oldman came into to the spotlight as Sid Vicious in “Sid & Nancy”(1986). We all remember his role as Dracula in the 1992 Coppola film “Dracula”and of course in “Leon: The Professional”(1994) in which he played Stansfield. Recently, Oldman seems to be more interested in Hollywood but this won’t stop us from enjoying his more serious works and of course, this portrait of him by photographer Max Whitaker.

Another film by Mike Leigh…”Another Year”

Introducing the many faces ofLesley Manville in “Another Year” by Mike Leigh (2010): A re-look into the seemingly mundane lives of people, including Marie (played by Manville), throughout seasons and all through a year.
Dedicated to Leigh’s long-time producer, Simon Channing-Williams, the film manages to escapes caricatures & yet represents individual tragedy without cinematic crescendo. There is no exaggeration, only subtle work. There is no pretentious dialogue, only small-talk, thus adding to the film realism and great mastery. Leigh nails it again!
