What Film (Movie) Have You Just Watched?

Recommended Posts

Waiting for the Barbarians (2019)

Mark Rylance, Johnny Depp, Robert Pattinson - Some good perfomances here.

At an isolated frontier outpost, a colonial magistrate of an unnamed empire suffers a crisis of conscience when an army colonel arrives looking to interrogate the locals about an impending uprising, using cruel tactics that horrify the magistrate.

Like a step guide to why colonisation is bad.

Worth watching.

Make Up [2020]
A teenage woman goes to help her boyfriend in a wind swept Cornish caravan park during the winter lock down period, and becomes obsessed with finding out if he cheated on her only to discover something else.  An impressively immersive and stylish first directorial debut worth seeing.

The Third Day [2020 Limited TV series]
A six part folk thriller mini series set on a remote British causeway linked island whose inhabitants have a penchant for the occult, steps dangerously near the style over substance line but ultimately seems worth watching as the cast put on a strong performance to make up for the somewhat bizarre story.

On The Rocks [2020]
Old school US rom-com with the only redeeming interest for some being Bill Murray is in it. Cute story but meh!

Rocks [2020]
Tough but uplifting coming of age social drama that has an authentic style without apparent staged dialogue set in multicultural England concerning a young teenage schoolkid of an immigrant family left struggling to fend for herself and kid brother when their single parent mother disappears.

The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies [2014 TV Limited Series]
Only just got around to downloading this two part adaptation of the Jefferies case true story, of the effeminate Bristol landlord teacher wrongly accused of murdering his tenant Joanna Yeates over Christmas 2010, vilified by the press and ultimately testifying at the Leveson inquiry. Superb lead performance makes for an addictive viewing.

Damn good watch, especially if you remember the case.
