Recommended Posts

Holy Lands (2018)

Harry Rosenmerck, an Ashkenazi Jewish American cardiologist, left everything to become a pig farmer in the Holy Land.

Stars:

Efrat Dor, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Rosanna Arquette, James Caan (the pig farmer)

Fun movie! He starts a pig farm in Israel. The Jews are down on him as well as the Muslims. There is a crazy priest trying to
make him leave his land.
His family is screwed up but the film pulls all this together for an enjoyable movie.

Not a movie a TV mini series - Chernobyl

Very, very good. So good the Russians are not happy.

Whilst it does lay the blame for Chernobyl at the door of the Soviet government, I reckon it shows the same kinds of people, in the same kinds of roles, that you would find in any kind of government and therein lies the blame. People clinging to their perceived power, status and ignorance.

Also a good telling of the story. Excellent acting throughout, Jared Harris, Stellan Skarsgård - I'll go so far as to say - required watching.
