Welcome, everyone to Krzysztof Kieślowski Club. The first rule of Krzysztof Kieślowski Club is, of course, never spell club with a 'K', as it attracts entirely the wrong sort of clientele, and I'm not talking about Mortal Kombat fans. For me at least, the Polish director was very much part of baby's first attempt at cinephiling, as I approached the world cinema section in Fopp with a student loan burning its way through my back pocket. Those Three Colours DVDs were then lovingly put on a shelf, and I went off and watched Aliens again, or Violent Cop, or all the other nonsense I've subjected myself to. Twenty years and numerous shelves later, those DVDs remain unwatched, but that changes now. Well, technically it doesn't as couldn't be bothered finding the DVDs and just downloaded them, but that aside, we're looking at six of Kieślowski's films to see if he is all that and a bag of potato chips.
