the_movie_doctors-9781782116646-am-1For over a decade, Simon Mayo and Mark Kermode have been sharing their film expertise with each other (and occasionally the odd listener) on BBC Radio. Now they bring their unique blend of deep movie knowledge and medical ignorance to their new guise as the Movie Doctors, armed and ready to offer improbable cinematic cures for the dilemmas of modern life. Need an alternative to counting sheep? Try The Piano. Tinnitus driving you up the wall? Interstellar can help. Stressed and anxious? The Big Lebowski is what you need.

Celluloid or humanoid, the Movie Doctors are here to help (341 pages, 791.43 MAY)
