on a related note, i think his The End of the Affair (1999) is spectacularly awesome.

Cheers.

I really liked it. I think the film has a few other fans around here as well.

Yes!

Ralph Fiennes and Julianne Moore are fantastic in that.

I really liked the idea of a modern day selkie story but I wish it had been more magical realist - I felt the thriller elements of the film really didn't work. And I disliked the way Jordan salivated over Bachleda-Curus, the slow-mo shots of her with clinging wet clothes were really OTT. Even so, it's always nice to see Chris Doyle behind the camera.
