Crossing Britain's borders
This is good news. I am reminded of Donald Westlake's comment bemoaning the lack of foreign films in the United States. Years ago, he said, he could watch Big Deal on Madonna Street for "a dozen post-graduate lessons in comedy." Now, he lamented, "New writers' brains are not being mulched in this way. What will be produced by people who think a good time is Spiderman?"
In movies, as in crime novels, crossing borders is good.
