Manhunt [2019 TV series]

Another well-made TV detective series from ITV UK this time based on the memoirs of Colin Sutton a senior investigating officer in the Met. There have been two seasons so far, both good, the first covered the Levi Bellfield serial murder hunt, and the second series of the bizarre serial rapist/burglar Delroy Grant.

A solid fictional police drama series already completed series 2. Solid easy to follow stories with deep character development and unexpected surprises leave you believing. Set in the picturesque Morecambe bay area. The second series is a step up so more to come.

I’ll have to look out for that one, my old stomping ground circa 1984-1989 when I was working on Heysham II Nuclear Power Station.

After Love [2020]

Set in the port town of Dover, a British Muslim convert suddenly finds herself a widow following the unexpected death of her husband. A day after the burial, she discovers he has a secret just twenty-one miles across the English Channel in Calais. Stunningly poignant and contrived drama, worth seeing, one of the year's best.

The Card Counter [2021]

Redemption is the long game in Paul Schrader's movie. Told with his trademark cinematic intensity, the revenge thriller tells the story of an ex-military Gitmo interrogator turned card gambler haunted by the ghosts of his past. Intense lead performance makes for an engrossing movie. Worth seeing.

The Velvet Underground [2021]

Documentary film explores the multiple threads that converged to bring together one of the most influential bands in progressive rock music and how it ended. This is audio visual gold for fans of the avant-garde music genre. Excellent in depth interviews with some of key players still alive and some rare and poignant clips of the era.

No Time To Die [2021]

James Bond has left active service. His peace is short-lived when an old friend from the CIA, turns up asking for help, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology. Not one of the best 007 movies for pace and execution including some rather dull villains, but nevertheless a fine farewell for the latest and perhaps best of the Bonds in the franchise. Out online now.
