Of special interest to me is Elizabeth Foxwell’s coverage of Seance on a Wet Afternoon. In the wake of Richard Attenborough’s death a few days ago, I was trying to work out which of the movies in which he acted was my favorite — and/or which was my favorite screen performance of his — and in the end I couldn’t decide between Seance, Brighton Rock and 10 Rillington Place.
