Deeply sad news.
Ah shite news. My love of film grew from watching him back in the 90s, he was such a passionate and warm man.
Someone whose reviews often inspired me to watch some films I was reticent about trying. Hope there’s a big cinema in the sky with the best seat in the house reserved for him.
Yeah pretty much this, he introduced me to so many amazing films ️
A great, cheery, populist critic. All ways sang the praises of the best film of the week and not the biggest film of the week.
Just seen this on the BBC website and my mouth opened and said “Oh fucking hell, not Barry!”. I’m sad sad.
These are the end credits the BBC put together for his final show.
My dad would watch it every week, and videotape it for me to watch the next day.
