They really couldn't have made this simple message more confusing. I think the P739 form is probably the little red card you get through the door when you're not there to collect your parcel. It's usually a good idea to use language your customers would use, and not necessarily the language used within your organisation.

Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Morgan Freeman, Matthew
Modine. Dir: Christopher Nolan.
reclusive Bruce Wayne re-dons the cowl when a terrorist threatens Gotham. So
much plot emotive moments sometimes vanish, but by the end, you’ve invested so
much it's exhausting. Nolan pulls all the stops, creating an urban war movie
full of engaging personal stories. Huge in every way. Awesome cast.
poor women survive by killing lone samurai and selling their belongings.
Described often as horror, although that’s only in the supernatural final
section, Onibaba’s a haunting work about the depths people sink to to survive,
losing their inhibitions and humanity. Stunning on screen, full of beauty, dread

Audran, Bulle Ogier, Jean-Pierre Cassel. Dir: Luis Buñuel.
bizarre events prevent a group of wealthy friends from enjoying a meal together.
Surreal satire that takes witty swipes at a privileged class whose inane,
shallow, ridiculous existence persists even through extreme circumstances. Its
tricks, twists and occasionally shocking turns reward repeated viewing, but is
accessible enough for casual viewers.
A Royal Affair (2012) Mads Mikkelsen, Alicia Vikander, Mikkel Følsgaard, David
Dencik, Søren Malling. Dir: Nikolaj Arcel.
princess is married to the imbecilic mad Danish King, but both are taken with an
ambitious new doctor. More than your average costume drama; this sumptuous tale
draws attention to a fascinating little-known romance that resulted in political
and social change, covering subjects still relevant. Fabulous performances.
Bubba Ho-Tep (2002) Bruce Campbell, Ossie Davis, Ella Joyce, Heidi Marnhout, Bob
Ivy. Dir: Don Coscarelli.
elderly Elvis and a black JFK team up to fight a mummy feeding off the elderly
in their rest home. A Goosebumps for pensioners; this delightfully eccentric
story is genuinely poignant, as a cantankerous, mournful, contemplative King,
decides to take his final bow. A little slow, but Campbell’s magnificent.
Killer Joe (2011) Matthew McConaughey, Emile Hirsch, Thomas Haden Church, Gina
Gershon, Juno Temple. Dir: William Friedkin.
life insurance seeking family are unable to pay a hitman, so they offer their
youngest girl as a retainer. As with Bug, Friedkin and writer Letts are interested in exploring the
need for family and togetherness in even twisted circumstances. As much
black-comedy as thriller, McConaughey is frighteningly good.
Repo Man (1984) Harry Dean Stanton, Emilio Estevez, Tracey Walter, Olivia
Barash, Sy Richardson. Dir: Alex Cox.
teen joins a car repossession firm which is tasked with retrieving a vehicle
with something alien in the trunk. Entertainingly off-kilter comedy which
explores eccentrics on the fringes of society with surrealism and satire. It’s
frequently very funny, but hard to figure what it’s about, if anything.
The Lodger: A Story of London (1927) Ivor Novello, Marie Ault, Arthur Chesney, June Tripp,
Malcolm Keen. Dir: Alfred Hitchcock.
serial killer terrifies London while a landlady gets a sinister lodger. One
critic claimed this was the best British film to date - with good reason.
Hitchcock brought moody European expressionism to his first thriller, and many
Hitchcockian themes first show here. Editing and title cards worth praise.
is a writer for better and for worse. I got in above my station writing for M&S, but was credit crunched down to writing about sex toys, Viagra and herpes meds. I’m now taking a step back towards legitimacy by writing for JML Direct. I’m awkward and don’t like much.
