Fantastic - I have never seen TOO LATE FOR TEARS and am really looking forward to getting the new Blu-ray (it is getting its own UK release, so anticipate yet another review chum!)

Todd Mason said...

Looking forward to seeing both the film and the review! Thanks.

RTD said...

Wow! What a round-up of sites, links, etc. Thanks!
All the best from the new crime fiction blogger with an empty blog, David.

Todd Mason said...

Thanks. Your reviews can be collected similarly!

Kelly Robinson said...

Thanks for the link! I'll be reading as many posts as I can.

Thank you for your fine contribution, about a multiply pioneering short film (not so short for its time). And, tomorrow, Friday's Books...
