Say Your Prayers review – goofy Christian hitman comedy
Smart pacing, sharp editing and classy cameos elevate this Yorkshire-set tale above many recent crime capersThe team behind 2016’s eye-catching indie Chubby Funny – producer Helen Simmons and director Harry Michell – return with another agreeably off-beam comedy, this time with a starrier cast and a goofy, Four Lions-ish premise. It’s the tale of sibling Christian hitmen who, envious of the column inches logged by rival fundamentalists, set out to kill a Dawkins-like author at a literary festival in Ilkley.Tim (Harry Melling) is the childlike younger brother, ill-suited to grisly murder; the uptight Vic (Tom Brooke) an unrepentant sociopath. Their target (Roger Allam, master of glib dismissiveness) need not worry unduly: an astutely timed prologue shows our would-be ruthless killers stalking a rambler who looks just enough like Allam for the first of several terrible mistakes to be made.

Sorry, freshers: that wild week you were promised will be more bed than bedlam | Phil Wang
Like A-level grades from a disadvantaged school, your social life has been downgraded to Zoom pub crawls and Sims-inspired campusesMy first party at university was a cheese and port party hosted by our college chaplain. It was 2008, and I was both smart and lucky enough to be at Cambridge. I have to be clear that neither “cheese”, “port” nor “college chaplain” are street names for anything. It was, very literally, a party of dessert wine, hard dairy, and a holy man, holding court in the middle of a small conference room, carrying out his God-anointed duty to ask us each where we were from and whether that was in the Greater Manchester area or just outside it.At the time I thought this was a strange start to university life. But as this year’s cohort enter higher education in the midst of a global pandemic, I am willing to admit now that I had no idea. Continue reading...

TV ads that you can’t fast-forward through? It’s like the dark ages
I had forgotten how annoying it is to have your viewing constantly interrupted by someone flogging something you don’t needI’ve a real liking for foreign-language films; I have done since I was a teenager. I think this started with late-night French films on BBC Two in the pre-video recorder era. I’ve often impressed film buffs with my knowledge of, say, François Truffaut – a whole season of whose work I watched avidly in the early 80s solely in the hope of seeing French people get their kit off.These days, of course, it’s different. It’s about the sheer quality of the stuff available as well as the benefit of having subtitles to concentrate on: you have to pay attention, or you won’t know what’s going on. Checking your phone, pottering about or glancing at a book is just not possible. You can’t half-watch a subtitled film; you’re either completely engaged, or not at all. Continue reading...

Kings and machines: Game of Thrones star's daring transhuman adventure
Mark O’Connell’s To Be a Machine asked whether technology is a means to eternal life. Now, a livestreamed version starring Jack Gleeson gives tech a new dimension in theatreHumans and robots were first introduced to each other in a theatre. Karel Čapek’s play RUR, which premiered in Prague in 1921, contained the first use of the term “robot”, and featured uncannily human-looking “artificial people”. So Mark O’Connell tells us in his 2018 Wellcome prize-winning book To Be a Machine, an exploration of transhumanism, the belief that the human race can evolve beyond its limitations through technology and even thereby escape death.O’Connell’s book has now been adapted by the Irish theatre company Dead Centre into a stage show, co-directed by Ben Kidd and Bush Moukarzel, exploring the relationship between man and machine that has only become more vexed in the intervening century. And there will be no humans in the stalls. Instead, audiences watch from home, but have their faces pre-recorded and broadcast into the theatre on iPad screens placed in the seats, so they can be seen by Jack Gleeson as he performs the one-man show.
