The Battle Of Algiers,,,shows the struggle from both sides, its over 50 years old but the theme of the battle to overcome colonial oppression still packs a punch today. It's very authentic and the Ennio Morricone soundtrack tops it all off. 5/5

Oh, Legend of the Stardust Brothers has been added. An under viewed cult gem - an 80s nonsense musical full of bizarre ideas and set pieces. It doesn’t all work, but when it does it’s a trippy joy with some killer tunes and laughs.

Fire will come (2019)
The real star of this movie is the Galician countryside. Some stunning cinematography is on show throughout.
As for the the cast and characters here, we never really get to know them or their backstory all that well. There's a razor-thin plotline that goes nowhere & by the end, nothing is resolved & questions have been left unanswered. Slightly disappointed by it. 2.5/5
Leaving tonight if anyone is still interested.

Brazilian movie, based on a community in rural Brazil, more or less cut off from the outside world. Things take some pretty bizarre turns in this one and it has the feel of a western in parts.
It is one I really enjoyed, don't want to say too much other than it is very much worth your while. It was a big hit in Brazil and won the Jury prize in Cannes.

wasn't too gone on El Sicario Room 164 , thought it was too long and not exactly riveting. Definately shows up the country though. It got 7.1 on imdb so that and figson well outweighs me

Has anyone watched the documentary Notturno?
It's a documentary about the aftermath of the wars in Iraq and Syria filmed over 3 years. It seems to be getting good reviews so I'll try to give it a watch over the weekend.
I'll also check out A prophet. It looks very good also.
I watched The King of Comedy last week on Mubi. One of Scorcese's movies that I hadn't previously seen, probably as relevant now as it was in 1982. You could view it as a follow on from Taxi driver in some ways. It's very interesting in any case.

Nicolas Winding Refn's Pusher is up as of today, also Mads Mikkelsen's debut. Think they'll be putting up the other two as well. So my viewing sorted for tonight.
