I visited the video store to hire…well…something different.
I ended up getting a Simon Pegg DVD. I quite like his films, although “Fear of Everything” was not his best.
It has the style of an old Ealing Comedy, but without the quality script. It tried to cover too much ground – neurosis, psychiatry, pathos, family tragedy, comedy and cartoons.
Simon Pegg did give a strong performance, and he has a way of picking ideal actresses to support him in his movies.
I will continue to look forward to his next movie. He is brave in seeking out new genres to display his talents.
The film did have a few Pegg moments of his distinctive humour and did make me laugh. Simon is a much under-valued actor. My expectations of his work are for a genius to emerge, as he grows ever more experienced. He is a good learner and in Ealing, he has the perfect example of classic comedies to achieve his full potential.
A future Hancock or is that Hitchcock.
