Falling [2020]
One of the years best movies, with two superb leads portraying a father son relationships final years with flashbacks of the bigoted, foul mouthed, hateful old man who travels from his rural farm to visit his gay pilot sons family in California.

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom [2020]
Tensions rise when the Mother Of The Blues arrives at a Chicago studio in 1927. Comes across overly dramatic, since it is based on a Pulitzer prize winning play, some might prefer a lot more music and less talk, but overall worth seeing.

White Riot [2019]
Brilliant 2019 documentary available on the usual download sites now in 2020 named after the Clash song of the late 1970’s UK when the Rock Against Racism movement started. Includes some surprisingly bigoted opinions from mainstream music stars of the time like Bowie, Clapton and Stewart. Great imagery from the era showing social deprivation, the National Front and the punk music scene which would help RAR bring racism down.

Hunter Hunter (2020)

Initially I was drawn to this for it's hunting theme. Whilst it does wrap up a little quickly, there are enough twists and good acting to make this a very good movie. No spoilers. Well worth watching.

The Hunter (1980)

Coincidentally, I was sifting through my old library of saved movies and this Steve McQueen gem caught my eye.

A movie from the old water, engaging and of it's time. I liked it.

Worth watching and savouring.

So this new TV series caught my eye

Hunters (2020)

Al Pacino, Nazis, Jews, what's not to love?

I was curious as to how this delicate subject matter might be handled. With a crystal clear lens is how. No pulling back from the violence or the abject terror of it all.

The 1st episode, 90 minutes, billed as 60, is brilliant. Set in the 60s and 70s so great music and fashion.

I'm setting down to watch the remaining 9 episodes now.

Very Very Good.

From Dusk till Dawn, reminded me of the good old days with after hours bars and discos etc

The Midnight Sun

Full of shit idiot movie with no sense of time etc - A craft somehow travels from Jupiter to Earth in a few weeks, and that's just the start.
