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.

The Cave [2019]
There were two films out in 2019 with this title, both now available online to download, the other a documentary about Syria, this the Thai drama based on the book The Miracle Of The Cave relating the true story of the youth football team trapped in a flooded Thai cave. As Thai movies go its just an okay summary of events, slapped together in a sloppy chronological fashion, with terribly wooden acting, especially from the low budget foreigners used. A global story of this magnitude of the period really deserves a world class screenplay in time to come perhaps.

The Cave [2019]
Danish-Syrian NatGeo award winning documentary highlights well the harsh realities of the work of some female doctors in an underground Syrian hospital bunker (the Cave) whilst the Russians and Syrian government bomb the heck out of the civilians above ground. Heavy going but worth seeing.

Colette [2018]
Good period drama biopic with good performances celebrates the bisexual French writer and mime artist Colette who began as a ghost writer for her manipulative and loser husband. Previously the story was told in the 1991 movie Becoming Colette, but this newer take provides a more sophisticated result.

The Whalebone Box [2020]
A bizarrely wonderful British mix of images and sound about the magic of a whalebone box, in one of the most avant garde movies of the year that doesn't disappoint. Worth seeing.

Resistance (2020)

The story of a group of Jewish Boy Scouts who worked with the French Resistance to save the lives of ten thousand orphans during World War II. (IMDB)

---

This movie is very much better than it first appears, in fact I'd go so far as to suggest that it is, an important movie of our time.

I could give you a number of very compelling reasons to watch it, but to do so would spoil the enjoyment.

Away [2019]
Animated movie of a young man escaping a dark spirit on a motorbike. The unique minimalist style of this independent film maker is immediately entrancing and leaves you wanting more. Suitable for all the family.
