Craze for the Krays

Craze for the Krays

All those reviews of Tom Hardy in Legend are right: he's terrific - twice. You completely forget that it's the same man playing both Kray twins, not just because the ‘in shot simultaneously' trickery is used sparingly (though when it is it's brilliant), but also because Hardy has put in two majestic performances, either of which would have stolen the show. So for two hours you watch a man trying to steal from himself. Given the subject matter, this is fitting.

Greyhound

A greyhound can accelerate from 0 to 45 mph in 1 second. This makes it the second-fastest accelerating animal on the planet, after the cheetah. A really striking way of learning about bio-mechanics - the greyhound can accelerate that quickly because it's so light, yet has such powerful legs. When the BBC's Top Gear raced one against a Mazda MX5 the greyhound accelerated more quickly - the Mazda has so much more weight to shift.
