I just had occasion to remember one of the most mortifying, Ianucci-esque moments of my life as an entertainment journalist. I was interviewing Mike Leigh, who I idolize, about his film ALL OR NOTHING.

Image What might be thought of as her signature rhythm, which is most prevalent, is a kind of galloping 12/8.
