OK then:       Zoe Saldana

I saw The Grey, yes, a very good movie IMHO

Just finished Binge-watching the TV series Vikings. l, ll and lll. The whole thing reeks of good production - Metro Goldwyn Mayer - History Channel et al.   It is apparently based on real life, in p

Cherry [2021]

An army medic suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder becomes a serial bank robber after an addiction to drugs puts him in debt. Based on a real army vets autobiographical book, this movie direction is altogether too well polished for the subject matter, so there is little to care for the characters plights.

Mouthpiece [2018]

Only recently going mainstream, this unusual movie from Canada that has a wonderfully weird Charlie Kaufman vibe about it. Cassandra, who is portrayed by the two women, expresses the opposing voices that exist inside a woman's head, during a 48-hour period as she tries to organize the affairs for her mother's funeral.

Bloodlands [2021 TV limited series]

A northern Irish police officer connects a suicide note with an infamous cold case with enormous personal significance. A strong lead amongst a cast of forgettable actors we don't care for with a complicated story-line makes it tough going. Line Of Duty comes to mind, just not quite as good.

Reading your review reminds me of another Woman=multiple personality movie, I saw.

 

Satsujinki o kau onna (2019) - This woman hides a murderer.

Japanese -  seek out the english subtitles.

Notable for some good sex and delicious twists in the plot.

Silk Road [2021]

A young philosophical Ross Ulbricht creates Silk Road, a dark net website that sells drugs, while an old school corrupt DEA agent Rick Bowden, goes undercover to bring him down. The Silk Road true story has been recounted a few times already and this, whilst nothing outstanding, makes for an entertaining crime caper.

The Trial Of The Chicago 7 [2020]

The true story of the trial stemming from various charges surrounding the uprising by activists at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago and the resulting clash with the police. A rousing courtroom drama done in typical Hollywood style but nevertheless works well with some stirring performances and good dialogue. Worth seeing.

Mank [2020]

1930's Hollywood is reevaluated through the eyes of scathing social critic and alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz as he races to finish the screenplay of Citizen Kane. This is sharply written and splendidly atmospheric in the recreation of the period, even those adverse to movies about Hollywood movie making could appreciate this one.

Creation Stories [2021]

Tells the mostly true story of Creation Records head Alan McGee; and of how one written-off young Glaswegian upstart rose to irrevocably change the face of British culture through a drug fueled haze. A strong lead with music from 70's punk through late 90's Britpop and its associated political links makes for an entertaining movie.
