If anybody asks me what my favourite things are I sometimes find it difficult to pick one — my tastes vary with mood. However, when pressed, as a rule I would have to nominate Ferris Bueller’s Day Off as my favourite movie.
I have to thank friend and ex-colleague Simon Madine for putting me on to this recut trailer which pitches the movie in the guise of an indie production, focussing less on the humour and more on bringing the underlying angst to the fore.
There have been quite a few Ferris topics springing up over the past few years. From which baseball game was featured, how many crimes were broken by the eponymous truant and even theorising as to his very existence.
