My Life in Film #14: Long Films

The Godfather

Film has long been an addiction and instrumental in forming some of the friendships and relationships that are of most importance to me. Film has influenced the language that I use, the books that I read and the music that I listen to. Most of all, film has been there for me at pivotal moments in my life; it’s a BFF who’s just as comfortable dumbing down with beers and pizza as they are engaging in existentialist chit-chat. In short, film is my everyday and film is my life.

To illustrate my point and exorcise my addiction, each week I will shed a tiny glimpse into how film affects my every day. Are you ready?

My Life in Film #14


Ever dreaded a long-ass meeting? Detest the thought of a family get-together? How’s about the idea of a bank holiday trip down the M6?

Well, My Life in Film is here for you. As a coping mechanism, break it down into manageable movie chunks.

Two and a half hour layover? Remember that you couldn’t even watch The Godfather in that time. Wallpapering the lounge? It could be worse; you could be watching The Lord of the Rings extended editions. That work appraisal? The boring bit at the beginning of Avatar.

You’re welcome.
