    Nice movie. 7/10. Plot was a bit thin, though.

    Denial (2016) - IMDb

    Denial.

    I was actually quite disappointed by this movie even though it features Timothy Spall, one of my favourite actors - remember Auf Wiedersehen Pet anyone?! This really doesn't know if it is a court room drama or UK v USA culture comparison. Based on a court case concerning the denial of the Holocaust, I know little about the main denier, David Irving, played by Spall - perhaps Irving in real life is nothing more than the quintessential English eccentric and this is certainly how the movie portrays him. Spall does put in a good shift as ever but something is lacking in this movie from which I came away with a sense of flatness. 6/10

    Interesting take on the long term effects of deregulation and making America great again with foreign companies. I'd bump it up to an 8 based on the relevance to the current political situations in America and the UK.

    I also liked Hacksaw Ridge.

    I've watched a couple of "Banged/ Locked UP Abroad", ( Please check on YouTube) all based on true events, but this one is an outstanding film. :celebrate1

    "Drugs were not known in our community". :smiling

    A Jew who first didn't know what drugs are and then tries to become the Godfather's double, or a religious Pablo Escobar. Really worth to watch it. :confused

    :cold

    Another Disney classic. this is a film that will be best watched in a cinema or on a home theatre system as the score is amazing. Difficult to do a remake but they just about pull it off. Brave, and applaudable move by Disney to have openly gay characters. 8/10

    I really enjoyed this three part series which has recently aired in the UK so should be available through the usual outlets. It's a really tense psychological thriller centring on the conflict between two women architects in a Glasgow practice arising out of shared careers and their experiences of motherhood. The Glasgow location with its backdrop of fine red sandstone buildings brought back many happy memories of my upbringing in that fine city. These included a wonderful scene set on the beautiful foot bridge that spans the River Cart in the Clarkston end of the Linn Park in Glasgow's leafy suburban southside - (redolent of clumsy, awkward adolescent dates!) Also shots in the Linn Park Crematorium and Cemetry where both my parents are buried and many other locations. But the personal connections aside this is a cracker and I don't think you'll be disappointed - it's dark, atmospheric and absorbing. I expect it will win awards. It confirms Jo Ahearne as a classy writer/director.
