What Film (Movie) Have You Just Watched?

Recommended Posts

Kill Chain (2019)

As with most Nicholas Cage movies - expectations were not high.  But, think Reservoir Dogs, in Mexico and add in the very beautiful Annabelle Acosta, this is a movie worth seeing. So much so, that I might go back and watch it again, to catch up, on the bits of dialogue I may have missed.

Once Upon A Time.... In Hollywood [2019]
Some strong performances help this overly long Tarantino indulgent homage to late 60's Hollywood exciting and enjoyable.

Jojo Rabbit [2019]
Unusually cute black satire set in World War 2 takes the piss out of Nazis and hate which is of interest for its originality although ultimately disappoints.

Ford V Ferrari [2019]
Highly entertaining film on how the Shelby/Miles duo won Fords first Le Mans 24 hour race back in 1966 from Ferrari with enough action and human content to make this a winner.

True Detective Series 1

Superb performances from both Harrelson and McConaughey.

Some nice T&A in places.

Worth the watch.

Marriage Story [2019]
A well written Netflix drama about the details of a messy divorce in LA between two characters that are performed to perfection. One of the better dramas of late with a satisfactory outcome for all.

A Million Little Pieces [2018]
Only saw this after it got a DVD of the week review on TV but was not overwhelmed. Based on a fictional book of a 23 year old in rehab for drugs and alcohol, the opening scenes look promising with some name actors but it soon degenerates straight into a DVD mushy story line.

Parasite [2019]
Available online with English subtitles, this is a cleverly made social satire on class in South Korea today is winning lots of awards on the foreign language circuit. Probably more enjoyable for native speakers, but still worth watching with never a dull moment.

Mimosas (2016)

from IMDB "A dying Sheikh travels across the Moroccan Atlas in a caravan escorted by two rogues."

Need to get the English sub titles, to understand this.

A striking film, not so much for it's beautiful shooting, but for (me any way), coming to understand the world of people, who have no education, but are smart enough in their own way.

I now understand why religion takes a hold in those, with no training of the mind.

4 from 5 stars

The Lighthouse [2019]
Two powerful performances in a masterpiece of psychological horror framed wonderfully in black and white, of two lighthouse keepers in a remote 1890's New England island left to slowly lose their minds. This could be a cult classic in time to come.
