This is my blog for miscellaneous screengrabs from movies and TV, arbitrarily organised into esoteric sections for very little reason. My what-I’ve-watched notebook is at A Week In Film, whilst serious stuff goes up on my main online home, Bristle’s Blog From The BunKRS. // BristleKRS

Brandtastic #002: For Queen And Country

Ah, For Queen And Country: featuring the best worst London accent deployed by an American since Dick Van Dyke (and preceding Forest Whitaker in The Crying Game by four years), Denzel Washington’s first big role (if, erm, you exclude 1988’s multiple Oscar/Golden Globe/BAFTA-nominated Cry Freedom) has him as a Commonwealth-born Falklands veteran leaving the army and becoming thoroughly disillusioned with Thatcher’s Britain.

Possibly this made things a bit tricky for the cross-marketing guys; the best they could manage was a bit of product placement involving a crippled ex-squaddie (Dorian Healy) taking a slash whilst taking swigs from a can of Tennent’s Super. Because you’re worth it.
