This week, the world has lost a man of action. Or, at the very least, a man who made action feel like action. Terry Rawlings was known for the James Bond fans as the editor of GoldenEye (1995), the first James Bond film starring Pierce Brosnan, but his career was much more extensive and he was often regarded as one of the best movie editors of all time.

The screenplay for Bond 25 originally written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and recently rewritten by reknowned script doctor Scott Z. Burns is now being polished by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. It is a well-known fact that without a great screenplay, no movie, whatever the budget is, can be made without flaws and FSWL strongly supports all decisions to strengthen it.

Unvarnished, unnerved, unmoved and uncertain, Licence to Kill (1989) subverts villains as heroes, sidekicks as leads, sex as evasion, with addictions more emotional than material.
