What Film (Movie) Have You Just Watched?

Recommended Posts

Leave No Trace [2018]
 
One of the best movies of the year that I've seen now out on Bluray download, a sublime story of a father fighting his demons and daughter living away from the grid in the Oregan rain forests, superbly acted all around.

Hysteria (2011)

Maggie Gyllenhaal (The Secretary, The Deuce)

Very lightweight, supposedly humorous, no tits 😟

Lighthearted treatment of a serious subject. In the late Victorian period female hysteria was a condition essentially attributed to anything and everything. The treatment varied but in time it became recognised that regular genital massage could alleviate much of the condition. An unfortunate impact being that doctors who "specialised" in the technique began to suffer RSSI, perhaps not surprisingly. Until one enterprising chap stumbled upon a means to mechanize the process and so gave birth(sic) to the vibrator. This then is the story of the worlds favourite female toy.

Supposedly based on Maines, The Technology of Orgasm, with some web info here:

A fascinating topic which unfortunately the film does not do justice to. I'm sure there's a good mini documentary here just waiting to be made.

Fahrenheit 451 [2018]
Made for TV modern glossy remake of the Bradbury classic, runs a little fast and dumbed down - a contender for a TV series perhaps? Worth a quick look at least.

The Man in the High Castle

Season 3

The series has started. Episode 1 was a bit slow moving so maybe gets moving in the next episode.

The Breadwinner [2017]
 
Engaging animated film adaptation of the novel tells a sobering tale of a young girl growing up in 2001 Taliban controlled Afghanistan.
