Though hardly a stoic, I never expected an automotive documentary to bring my tear ducts online. But "Love The Beast", detailing actor Eric Bana's quarter-century affair with a 1974 Ford XB Coupe, is as moving as it is singularly beaut. I was fortunate to attend a preview organised by the distributor, Madman. The official cinema release date for the flick is March 12 and I unreservedly recommend it.
Not a "Doctor Who" novel: "Uglier Than A Monkey's Armpit" (2007) by Dr Robert Vanderplank and Stephen Dodson - underline: "The best curses, put-downs and invective from around the world."
