Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story [2022 TV Limited Series]

UK entertainer Savile had charmed a nation with his eccentricity and philanthropy in some eyes. But sexual abuse allegations exposed a shocking unseen side of his persona. A bleak two part three hour documentary doesn't really say much that hasn't already been told, but just emphasizes it in haunting style for a global audience.

Benedetta [2021]

A 17th-century nun in Italy suffers from disturbing religious and erotic visions. She is assisted by a companion, and the relationship between the two women develops into a romantic affair. Entertainingly lurid and erotic French period drama. Perhaps the first mainstream movie with a squirting lactating nipple in it?

The Thief, His Wife and the Canoe [2022 TV Limited Series]

Four-part UK TV drama based on the true story and book of how prison officer John Darwin faked his own death in a canoe accident to claim life insurance and avoid bankruptcy - unbeknownst to his two sons. Simple to follow well-made crime drama from the point of view of his coercive controlled wife and partner in crime.

Where Eagles Dare

1968...54 years ago...still an excellent movie! Gave it a look after 54 years!

During World War II, a British aircraft is shot down and crashes in Nazi held territory. The Germans capture the only survivor, American Brigadier General George Carnaby (Robert Beatty), and take him to the nearest S.S. headquarters. Unknown to the Germans, the General has full knowledge of the D-Day operation. The British decide that the General must not be allowed to divulge any details of the Normandy landing at all costs, and order Major Jonathan Smith (Richard Burton) to lead a crack commando team to rescue him. Amongst the team is an American Ranger, Lieutenant Morris Schaffer (Clint Eastwood), who is puzzled by his inclusion in an all British operation. When one of the team dies after the parachute drop, Schaffer suspects that Smith's mission has a much more secret objective.

Cloud Atlas 2012 

Epic science fiction film written and directed by the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer. Based on the 2004 novel by David Mitchell, it has multiple plots occurring during six eras in time, with the cast members performing multiple roles. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_Atlas_(film)

Very interesting, I'm going to watch this again, and perhaps a third time.

It may be in the' too much' basket for some, it may be that the book should be read first. It may be a very good movie.

I recommend seeing this at least once.

Stars4.png.ba36d3575b7db3bdee5c7adb53ef1fcc.png  maybe 5 stars after the second viewing.

Jungleland [2020]

Two brothers try to escape their circumstances by traveling across the US for a no holds barred boxing match that becomes a fight for their lives. Gritty drama set around the seedy gangster world of underground fighting, rises above mediocrity with two convincing leads.

Quoting an American review, they don’t have “Homicide” Detectives in Blackpool or anywhere else in the UK, only Detectives investigating a Murder.

Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans 2009

Nicholas Cage, Eva Mendes

Cage can do good movies, this is one of those.

It helps that Werner Herzog directed.

88 Minutes 2007

On the day that a serial killer that he helped put away is supposed to be executed, a noted forensic psychologist and college professor receives a call informing him that he has 88 minutes left to live.

Al Pacino and other actors who are taller than him.

Good movie, no spoilers.
