It has been quite some time since I posted here but sometimes the demands on my time can be great.
However, I wanted to make mention of the film I recently watched (captioned above) because it seemed like one of those little known films that deserve more attention. I believe Last Holiday has been one of the Criterion selections that is about to be discontinued and they are selling it now at a discount for a limited time.
The film stars Alec Guiness who always seems to give a good performance and this one is no exception to that. In fact I would say that J.B. Priestley could not have asked for a better choice for his character. The story of a single man who is given the bad news that he has only a few months to live, is the theme and needless to say the manner in which he lives out these months is the primary purpose of the story.
I don't want to give away any spoilers here in case someone decides to watch this film, but the film holds your interest for its roughly 1 1/2 hours of length and is worth the time spent.
