Race, the story of Jesse Owens and, by extension, that of the '36 Olympics.

HyperNormalization, a documentary by Adam Curtis. One grand conspiracy theory to rule them all. Sound and fury signifying nothing.

Two Guns. A buddy film starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg. It was quite good. I enjoyed it. Lots of action and macho-speak. Funny in places. Oh . . . and boobies. What more could you want?

The Shout. A disjointed 70's schlock horror I haven't seen since then. Alan Bates, John Hurt, and Susannah York. And a young Tim Curry popped up at one point. The memory of it was better than the reality.

Lion. It had its moments, but I had also just finished reading Saroo Brierley's book a few days prior and... well... you know how directors meld a few characters and change timelines and alter details to suit their purpose. Definitely the book over the movie in this case.
It's good to laugh at yourself once in a while - why let everyone else have all the fun!

Zero Days. A documentary about the Stuxnet virus. Lots of enigmatic former CIA types talking about how that 'can't talk about that'.

Just this evening I watched A Man Called Horse, from the 70s.  I saw it when it first came out and it still seemed pretty damned good.

Love Richard Harris. Recently watched Man In The Wilderness which covers the same ground as Di Caprio's The Revenant.

Yeah, I'm starting to think I watch too many movies. Anyway. I Saw the Light. Biopic of Hank Williams. Perfect casting, perfect pitching, dreadfully uninvolving. Williams had no June Carter to play off, and no trauma to justify his destructive lifestyle.

Another old film, Father Goose.  Predictable outcome, with some shameless stereotyping, but entertaining.  The drunken woman losing her inhibitions is superbly acted ;-)

My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

Certain women (Kelly Reichardt). Portraits of four ladies. Very few words but great acting.
Loneliness, beautiful landscapes. A meditative movie. I loved it. (inspired by short stories due to Maile Meloy -? -)

The Prestige

That's a good movie, I think.  It's the one with Bale and Wolverine, right?  I think the Illusionist is the one that isn't so great.  Damn them for coming out around the same time and having similar premises.

I think the last movie I watched was "Moonlight Kingdom." 
"You are not prepared!"  -Illidan Stormrage, master sorcerer, fallen hero of the Third War, former Lord of Outland, and current lord of the Demon Hunters.  Known to his people as "The Betrayer," he has sold his soul and connection with nature to combat the invading demonic army, The Burning Legion.

Split. It's a thriller about a man with 23 distinct personalities who kidnaps three girls.
