The Dirty Old Man's Club in Lyndhurst Terrace played host to a special guest last week. The space served up double vodkas to cinematographer Chris Doyle, DJ Kulu and Doyle's longtime friend, film boss Hamish McAlpine, of Metro Tartan Distribution. The pair are evidently old buddies and have worked together for years. McAlpine was responsible for bringing Wong Kar-wai's films to Europe. But McAlpine is also a producer. His latest film, Sixteen Years of Alcohol, was inspired by Wong Kar-wai. 'We were in Edinburgh, Wong Kar-wai's favourite city after Hong Kong, and I showed him this poem called Sixteen Years of Alcohol, and he told me I had to make the film. He said to me, 'just let the architecture be the star of the movie'. And he continually gave me and the director, Richard Jobson, a great deal of support and guidance throughout the entire project.' McAlpine and Doyle have plans to make a movie together in Hong Kong, but we daren't say about what. Just imagine a place in the city where dirty old men can frolic freely as if they were in Never-Never Land.
