3.5* - God's Own Country (2008)
1* - Waterline (2012)

Dedication: To Margaret 1948-2005

Opening: Ramblers. Daft sods in pink and green hats. It wasn't even cold. They moved down the field swing-swaying like a line of drunks, addled with the air and the land, and the smell of manure. I watched them from up top, their bright heads peeping through the fog.
