For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move. ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON

Rebels


Nottinghamshire's three famous literary sons . . .

Taken by my phone opposite Nottingham railway station yesterday. I was heading for the Broadway Cinema to see Embrace of the Serpent by Colombian film director, Ciro Guerra.

Thanks for the movie title.

I’d be interested to hear your review of this film. I understand it is about “imperialist pollution” in the Amazon. I also would like to hear your feeling about Brexit. Maybe there also there is imperialistic nostalgia?

That movie is definitely worth seeing, shot in a lush monochrome. If a little earnest in parts. Re Brexit I am disgusted, depressed and alarmed. Perhaps some atavistic hankering for an illusory past, but more an ugly xenophobia and narrow isolationism. The so-called Brexiteers now seem to be backtracking on all their 'promises'.
