Re the film "The FBI Murders" shown last night, we sat down to watch it with 5 other people and we couldn't believe how much was cut from this film, it was so disjointed that you couldn't follow it, and even the final gun battle (which is the main part of the film) was cut out. Come on True Movies do you really have to spoil a movie so much.

your correspondent need only buy a freesat box to receive true movies. He will recoup the price of the box in less than six months by the cancellation of his sky subscription.
