  1. Tracks [2013] Only just got around to watching this excellent road trip movie, based on the memoirs of real life Robyn Davidson's desire to escape her troubled past and walk across the Australian desert from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean with her pet dog and four camels, reluctantly agreeing to being sponsored by a NatGeo.
  2. Official Secrets [2019] Excellent UK political drama based on the true story from 2003 of a GCHQ whistle blower questioning the legality of the Iraqi war.
  3. Escape From Pretoria [2020] Based on a true story, this familiar genre prison escape movie has some tense moments throughout to elevate it beyond an otherwise mundane story. The accents are a bit dodgy and having Radcliffe in anything with Harry Potter glasses is always a risk, but somehow this doesn't matter and the movie succeeds.
  4. Black and Blue [2019] Exciting crime drama of a rookie cop on the run from crooks and bent cops in the hood. Helped slightly by good lead whose done much better elsewhere, this is only really worth seeing to veg out to as the story is cheesy b movie level.
  5. Little Joe [2019] Weird sci fi drama with a brilliantly unique feel about it makes it worth a look, about a separated mother who works as a geneticist and develops a flower that pollinate peoples minds to unwittingly change them in a creepy kind of way.
  6. Dark Waters [2019] Powerful legal thriller, somewhat overly melodramatic at times, about the currently ongoing true story of an environmental lawyer who takes on the massive dark secret of unsafe chemical dumping by DuPont, which ultimately affects his whole family and future.
  7. Finding Vivien Maier [2014] Fascinating documentary of the eccentric US spinster nanny with a dark side who, after her death in 2009, was discovered to have taken some of the best street photography of the late twentieth century in the US and briefly around the world including Thailand and now displayed in art galleries globally. Worth seeing.
  8. Honeyland [2019] Award winning documentary without narrative of Europe's last successful nomadic beekeeper in North Macedonia who struggles when some opportunist neighbors show up to try their luck at collecting honey. Great cinematography enhances a predictable story.
  9. Richard Jewell [2019] Another Eastwood movie that is done in his plain likable style aided by three fine performances, based on the true events of the vilified innocent security guard suspected in the press of the '96 Atlanta bombing.
  10. White House Farm [2020 TV limited series] Well made 6 part TV series crime drama with a distinctive creepy lead of the main suspect in a true story from 1985 when five family members were murdered overnight at a farm in the UK. Worth seeing.
  11. American Factory [2019] Award nominated Netflix documentary about a Chinese billionaire who opens a factory in an Ohio abandoned General Motors site, offers insight into the two cultures of China and the US workers trying to make it work.
