    A major shower of Hollywood films this week. Rather routine sounding fare, though. None of the America films jump out as much as Il Divo – a promisingly stylish political thriller from Italy. The milestone this week is reaching a hundred film releases – the equivalent of about one film for every day. Unluckily this week sees the thirteenth British fictional feature of 2009 – Lesbian Vampire Killers, but also the enviromental awareness-raising British documentary-drama-animation The Age of Stupid. In the realm of fantasy, LVK  offers us a country village in Norfolk cursed by Sapphic blood-suckers, and in the domain of docu-drama (mostly docu) The Age of Stupid highlights a Bedfordshire village warding off a ‘curse’ of wind turbines. Nimbies and lesbos, come away.
