A rival for iMDB? Many happy memories of tike spent at the BFI when I was a student in LOndon:
- people throwing up at a screening of Christiane F (when she tattoos herself with ink and a bloody nedle)
- people walking out of Peter Greenaways The Falls because they couldn't make sense of 100(?) 2 minute(?) interviews with people whose name begins Fall...
- the wonderful first re-screening of Abel Gance's Napoleon - a great silent classic with real orchestra and some sections shot in triptych.
