The Dig [2021]
Based on a true story set just as Britain goes to war with the Germans in 1939, an excavator and his team discover a wooden ship from the Dark Ages while digging up a burial ground on a woman's estate. This is a very English style drama that starts well and is more memorable for the two strong leads rather than any archaeological digs but gets somewhat lost in a disappointingly schmaltzy Hollywood mainstream style production with an unnecessary romantic subplot.

Enjoyed that thanks, recall going to see the exhibit in '69 at the British Museum. Did not think the inserted romance was too bad, at least no bames littering the cast for once!

Assassins [2020]
An account of the two women convicted of assassinating Kim Jong-un's half-brother, Kim Jong-nam in Malaysia. The film follows the women's trials in an attempt to understand whether they are trained killers or simply pawns. An engrossing documentary showing the bizarre story as the investigation unfolded.

Rams [2020]
A decades-long feud between two sheep farming brothers comes to a head when disease strikes their flocks and one of the brothers attempts to outwit the authorities over a two year ban. This enjoyable, uncomplicated Australian drama-comedy is a remake of the recent award winning 2015 Icelandic film.

Saint Maud [2019]
Only recently out on digital platforms, this physiological horror debut set in a British seaside resort town follows a pious nurse who becomes dangerously obsessed with saving the soul of her dying patient. Even those not into the movie genre should go for this which is one of the best horror flicks in years, as memorable as the Exorcist.

Uncle Frank [2020]
In 1973, when Frank and his 18-year-old niece take a road trip from New York to Creekville, South Carolina, for the family patriarch's funeral, they're unexpectedly joined by Frank's lover, Walid. A fairly mundane melodrama about the bigotry of the day with some laughs and mostly of note for a good performance by Bettany who is rarely seen these days.

The Undoing [2020 TV limited series]
A modern "whodunnit" tale, when the life of a wealthy New York therapist turns upside down after she and her family get involved with a murder case where the husband is the prime suspect. The star cast might be off putting to some looking for originality, but they greatly add to make a very watchable twisting thriller although the end comes across a little cheesy for some tastes.  Worth seeing.

76 Days [2020]
Raw and intimate, this excellent documentary by the American MTV channel captures the struggles of patients and frontline medical professionals battling the COVID-19 pandemic inside a Wuhan hospital during the first 76 days. Full of high emotions and selfless acts to restore faith in humanity this is worth seeing.
