Girl Chewing Gum
The British Cinema 16 DVD features art-house filmmakers such as Peter Greenaway (Drowning by Numbers, The Cook the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover), Lynne Ramsay (Ratcatcher, one of my all-time faves, and the recently released We Need to Talk About Kevin) and Mike Leigh (Naked, Secrets and Lies, Career Girls), alongside blockbuster filmmakers Ridley Scott (Bladerunner, Alien, Thelma and Louise) and Christopher Nolan (the Batman reboots, the over-rated Inception). It also features a five-minute documentary by photographer Martin Parr and John Smith’s 1976 Girl Chewing Gum, which is one of my favorite artist’s shorts ever.
