Mark Kermode on The Lodger.

Film As part of the BFI's new Player+ role out, they've asked Kermode to choose films from their catalogue and record introductions (here he is front a trailer for the service). This sounds like it's going to be a weekly occurrence and if they continue to make them accessible to anyone, an excellent recommendation engine even for people who don't have a subscription. Mark's talked before about providing similar intros to horror films on Channel 4, but this is sure to drag the net wider and with the shooting in front of a white background, this is very much in the spirit of Moviedrome. See also the short lived film club from his own vlog.  The concept of BFI Player+ is fine although there are no television apps yet and I'd be more interested in being able to access the contents of the BFI Mediatecque home.
