Miller doesn’t seem the agonised type, whereas Hancock redefined the notion of the sad clown during his sadly truncated life. And, as Miller explores his hero’s career, he finds plenty of betrayal, disappointment and dysfunction. ‘A moody perfectionist with a great interest in money and no sense of loyalty,’ was the BBC’s verdict.
Still, while Hancock’s output isn’t characterised by any great consistency, his finest moments suggest a true original. As he retraces Hancock’s footsteps through life and meets various of his comedy co-conspirators, Miller’s excited engagement with Hancock’s traces becomes palpable. Enjoyment of the resulting film will still largely depend on your feelings for Hancock himself but, if you’re a fan, this will be a treat.
An Italian café on Green Lanes that has a prime spot opposite Stokey's Clissold Park. This isn't your typical, pizza-loving Italian pitstop, though, Ferratelle D'Oro specialise in pizzelle, better known as ferratelle in the central Italian region of Lazio. The thin, biscuit-like goodies come either sweet or savoury, paired with scoops of gelato or mozzarella, and plain pre-packaged ferratelle are available, too. Alternative meals are also on offer in the neat restaurant area for those looking to settle down for something a little more substantial. All the usual hot and cold drinks can be found here, as well as juice bottles from Press London.
