Love. Jealousy. Murder. And I thought my Central Line morning commutes were bad.
Rereleased in UK cinemas today is Anthony Asquith's Underground. The first ever film to be shot on the tube, the 1928 silent film has been given a spit and a polish by the BFI and decorated with a new score by the inimitable Neil Brand to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the London Underground.
It's recommended this week as your alternative to Gangster Squad - not just for the history, the music and the people-watching, but this stunning shot from the very front of a train as it pulls into a station. Now I know how stupid I look when waiting on a platform.
