And what better film for this particular meme than Powell & Pressburger's 'A Matter of Life & Death:
One of the greatest films they ever made, and still a classic to this day.
No pandering to the audience in those days - you were expected to know who all these people from history were, there was very little exposition from the main characters, and it maintains its mystery to the end - is Peter dreaming? Is it real?
It was innovative in its day, in its use of technicolour for 'real life' and black and white for the 'trial' scenes, and it remains one film I hope they never remake, because I can't see how it could ever be bettered...
Tomorrow, L is for Literature.
