Edinburgh Fringe: Anthem for a Doomed Youth

I’m a big fan of Guy Masterson’s work. His “Under Milk Wood” was incredible, so when I’m in Edinburgh I always make an effort to see whatever it is that he’s in. This year the only thing that he was doing that coincided with my time at the fringe was “Anthem for a Doomed Youth”. His readings of World War 1 poetry. It was very good. Very powerful, and as always with Guy Masterson, full of emotion and meaning and at times, even humor.

At some point I’d love to see his “Under Milk Wood” again. I really hope he performs it somewhere I can get to at some point.

The Grand Budapest Hotel


I’m a massive fan of Wes Anderson’s movies. I think I’ve enjoyed them all to a greater or lesser degree. However, I think that this might be one of his finest. To date my favourite has been “The Life Aquatic” by far, but this is a worthy rival. I have to say that it had all the best elements of his films, and astonishingly good performances by the entire cast. In fact, I’d probably go so far as to say it was almost flawless.

Ralph Fiennes was incredible. I think it’s one of the best things I’ve ever seen him do. I think I’m going to have to watch it again, and again, and again.


Edinburgh Fringe: The Hive

Another really good show this year at the fringe was “The Hive”. This was a sort of post-apocalyptic piece about a society where everyone was separated from each other. A set of interesting and somewhat compelling ideas, but most of all I enjoyed how it was presented. The music, set and physical nature of the show were excellent, and whilst I think it suffered from a lull towards the end, it was, on the whole, really well put together.

The performances were also very well executed and I think that the company producing it have a lot to offer.
