    Black Klansman. It could have done without modern day footage at the end and stuck to the story of the protagonist, which I liked.

    I am watching that right now I’m about 30 minutes into it and I like it so far.


    I watched a try hard film called Children Act with Emma Thompson. It was about an English court judge who had to rule on a young man getting a blood transfusion, something he did not want in the hospital was forcing it.

    I’ve been away from films for quite a while because my attention span now hovers between 43minutes and 62 minutes, typical episode lengths of television dramas.


    In order to find films I think I might be able to stand, I use Frank Sweitek’s One Man’s Opinion summary list of films where he give letter grades A through F. Frank is a hard grader! That’s why I like him because if he gives it a B
    it may be worth watching but anything below a B unless it’s something special in my wheelhouse I’m not gonna watch.

    DH and I saw Ford v. Ferrari Saturday evening. I thought it was well-done, even if it was a bit long (almost 3 hours). I'm not a race fan, but I enjoyed the story and the characters.

    I want to see that, Beckyliz. We just got back from The Good Liar, with Helen Mirren.

    We saw Harriett and it was one of the best movies I have seen in a long time.

    I haven't gone out of my way to see a movie in some time, but I've just finished the 4th and final season of The Man In The High Castle. I've loved everything about the series so far, the story line, the richly drawn characters, the photography, setting and excitement of seeing what might have been. But boy the final scene confused me, I could use another episode where it's explained.

    I watched season 1 of that plus some episodes of the next season. The title sequences are great— they struck terror in my heart and set up the premise of the show well. I like the British actor Rufus Sewell. Several of the characters snd their situations were very interesting, such as the Japanese bureaucrats. I guess I stopped watching because it was scary and much like a war movie. Constant tension without any bits of humor as relief just made it too dark for me.

    I had pretty much the identical reaction, and yeah, the first season was amazing. But it kind of felt like I was falling into a dark hole and I had to get out.

    My favorite of this genre is the movie It Happened Here from 1964:

    Terrifying. An amazing movie, by two kids, aged 16 and 18 when they started it-- from Amazon's review of Brownlow's book about making the movie:

    "How It Happened Here tells the story of the making of a film and the subsequent reception that the film received and the controversy and alarm that it stirred up when it was first released. The film-makers were two teenagers (18 and 16) and they started out with no budget and a borrowed 16 mm camera. The project took 8 years to complete. Part of the book is a humorous and detailed account of how the boys overcame all the practical and financial hurdles of amateur film making and saw the project through to completion and national release. This in itself would qualify the book as a thoroughly entertaining read and a sound basis for a course in film making or media studies of any kind. But this was no ordinary film. Kevin and his co-director Andrew Mollo took as their theme the "what if?" idea of a conquered and occupied England, after a hypothetical defeat and invasion following the Dunkirk retreat."
