Alfie

 

I’m in Bayswater, London, retracing the steps of Michael Caine’s 1966 Alfie. Try and get your hands on the original play / novel by Bill Naughton, but the next best thing is to watch the movie online (avoid the Jude Law remake).

It’s the ultimate player movie, with all the key concepts explored: Lover-Provider, Frame, Polarity, Sex vs Affection, Secret Society. Plus an exceptionally pimp soundtrack from Sonny Rollins. What’s not to like?
