on my last west coast trip, I enjoyed catching up with/discovering some movies, and this trip was no different.

I thoroughly enjoyed Paul Abbott's excellent (UK) political thriller State of Play and I went through IMDB to find what else he'd been involved in. I came across Alibi, and got the disc from the library to rip for watching on the plane. While the IMDB user rating is only listed as 6.1/10, I would rate it higher. I had watched Abbott's other work (Shameless), but the humour was too bawdy for my taste. Alibi was just perfect.

Amazon recommended Shooting the Past (IMDB rating 8.4/10), written & directed by Stephen Poliakoff. Some years ago, I accidentally came across Poliakoff's earlier Almost Strangers (released as Perfect Strangers in the UK) and found myself entranced. Like Alibi, I picked up Shooting the Past and watched the first episode. I still have another five to go!
