Hopscotch

Ronald Neame, who we last saw with The Horse’s Mouth just a few months ago, directs Hopscotch from 1980, a film co-written by Brian Garfield from his own novel, which is only interesting to point out in that Garfield also wrote the novel Death Wish. This movie is not Death Wish related, but isn’t that neat?

Instead what we get is Walter Matthau being old, even older than I first insist, but wasn't he always old? Answer: yes. Now he's dead, which is the oldest you can get. Fortunately he made Hopscotch before then, because it's amazing and I love it and want to watch it again now just thinking about it.
