    There's a song that plays 24 minutes into this film that has me spellbound and I CAN'T FIND IT ANYWHERE. It isn't in the credits and Shazam don't know it.

    IF ANYONE CAN FIND THIS SONG I WILL PAYPAL YOU £10.

    I AM 100% SERIOUS.




    ...on a separate but related note, I enjoyed the film.

    Babylon

    ★★★★½

    The best possible film to watch the day after Green Book has won the Academy Award for Best Picture. A black/white friendship is at the heart of this film – but, unlike the sentimental, everything-turns-out-alright-in-the-end Hollywood-favoured approach, Babylon pictures the friction caused by living as a minority in a racist society with blunt realism and no easy resolutions. Wrap it up with a moving dub soundtrack, brightly understated cinematography and a backdrop showing off all the decay and brilliance of south London in the late 1970s and you have a proper cult classic on your hands, that still stands up strong in 2019.
