Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

What a fascinating story, and how relevant for today.

sure it's a rough cut which is a touch schizoid, telling two stories at the same time. One, the reach of power and privilege. The other, an homage to journalism from another distant time. At times it doesn't work telling both side by side, though one tale is gripping and the other has real charm.

I'd like to know much more about the plot and its men... and whether Cecil King ever was able to make himself invisible walking down Fleet Street.

PS. Here's the review of the film (to date) by the Global Village Idiot, in its entirety:


45 minutes. The rough cut from Sven's Diary. Story of Cecil King

Power mad media mogul. Conspiring Bank of England. Severed breasts wrapped in newsprint. City of London attacking. Hidden debt, financial threat. Rampant ego. Psychic demented mogul wives. Laughable but charming sound track. Unsevered pert breasts. Mountbatten. And playing himself, the dynamic young newcomer, Rupert of Murdoch.

2.3 thumbs up.
