    A big week for British film and possibly fish. Marketing for the British environmental documenatry The End of the Line asks us to ‘Imagine a world without fish’. That’s gonna use up a lot of imagination. Four new British feature films this week – but only Doghouse and Looking For Eric on in Leicester.


    Yet another example of male anxiety about women in British comedy horror.

    A new Ken Loach film is always an event, and good to see that it is showing at the multiplexes and not just in the art houses.


    Also on release this week is Richard Jobson’s New Town Killers and Thomas Clay’s (unfortunately no relation)  Soi Cowboy.

    Both films look interesting writer-directer productions – an urban thriller and an arty film about Thai prostitutes. New Town Killers has a theme song and music video also directed by Richard Jobson who was in the Scottish band The Skids, but it doesn’t appear to have a website, and neither does Soi Cowboy.

    Don’t forget to spend some time thinking about a world without fish – cover up the aquarium for starters.
