I can't wait to see Hallam Foe which is out today. A Peter Jinks book turned into a film. Jamie Bell (of Billy Elliot fame) plays misfit Hallam, young boy who wonders the rooftops of Edinburgh. The soundtrack is an impressive loyalty of Scottish greats Franz Ferdinand, Orange Juice, Sons and Daughters, King Creosote (all from the Domino Records Label). http://www.thefilmfactory.co.uk/hallamfoe/

It was the David Shrigley artwork featured in the trailer first caught my attention. I found out about Shrigley when his exhition came to Dundee, plus our lecturers last year practically worshiped him. The image above is not his work but this video below gives a pretty good idea about his work
