    Pretty far out film from 1980, competently directed by Ken Russell.
    The special effects are amazing as is the acting.

    Just went to see the latest Pirates of the Caribbean and enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Was just a load of special effects really but had some very cool decomposing pirates...
    I just watched the. That, good special effects . I watched dawn of the planet of the apes and I am waiting for the newest one to come out on dvd. Can't afford £23 to see it in the cinema.

    Nebraska. About an old boy who thinks he's won a million dollars and decides to walk to the city in Nebraska to collect it, despite everyone telling him it's marketing spam. Slow paced and languid, beautifully filmed in black and white, and a great performance from Bruce Dern. A delight.

    £23 for a cinema ticket? I'd move to a cheaper town if I was you.

    I feel like I'm making a confession here: I went to see Atomic Blonde. I don't always like it when they make beautiful female / macho heroines, 'just to break gender stereotypes', it can come across as cheesy tokenism. Women can do everything a woman can do and everything a man can do. Yeah, great, well actually people just do bits and pieces . . . The sex wars need to be resolved by looking inward to discover individuality rather than copying men simply because power is wanted and men define power. Obviously if it's genuinely wanted: fine - but that's the question. [I used the word resolved, because I get bored by the repetitive nature of the 'sex war'.]

    Nikita, the original French version, is one of my favourite films - for me this is a film where the female heroine is done well, she was a fully conceived character with her own drives . . . with Atomic Blonde, I was also a bit wary of the issue of the selling of beauty, when they do it so extremely - the Channel commercial filmed in the Palais de Versailles with Charlize, blah, blah, blah . . . so maybe you see why I was hesitant to see the film, I have certain issues.

    Anyway, I went to see Atomic Blonde and was hypnotised. It was staggeringly good and Charlize was perfect. The Eighties soundtrack was exciting for me, Bowie, Depeche Mode, New Order, all fit in very well with the Berlin backdrop during the fall of the wall. Then there is the character played by Charlize, a violent super spy. It's comic based, so you accept the improbability; that said, this is not Matrix-style flips and dodging bullets - this is really gritty action that I don't think stereotypes gender. The story is gripping and the supporting characters are fully fleshed, not always predictable. The whole thing is beautifully fun.

    [Another confession: Fury Road was good too.]

    God of War, a bit like a continuation of the Water Margin meets Mr Bean in the Snickers advert in the way that a lot of Chinese sword movies appear to be but quite watchable if you allow for that.

    Un prophete, long and gruelling prison film/religious metaphor.
    I like it, it's engaging and keeps my language brain happy.

    All the films by that director are worth watching. I really liked The Beat that My Heart Skipped and Dheepan.

    Went to see Daphne at the Prince Charles cinema (matinee cheapie - really good). This is a really refreshing London film.

    I went to see the film, knowing absolutely nothing about it (and that's probably the best way) except it was about a woman dissatisfied. I thought, that sounds good, I wonder how she resolves that one?

    Emily Beecham plays the woman fantastically: this is a real woman, confused, but strong in her own way. Sex, drugs and nihilism, says the papers, but it's a lot more than that. This is not a Jennifer Aniston sparkly story; it's more like following somebody around, except the script is smart. [And it's not a bleak film, it has heart.

    A couple of nights ago I watched Martin Scorcese's film, "Hugo". I may have found a new favourite film.

    Cold Moon 2016. Not brilliant and too much 'Beetlejuice' influence.

    The Tree of Life. A Terrence Malick film. Slow meditation on a American family in the 1950s onwards. I thought it was very good but it has had mixed reviews.

    Saw Bar Bahar (In Between) about three Palestinian women caught between traditionalism and modernity. It's the best film on that subject I've seen - all three women were outstanding.

    Just watched Will Penny on DVD. One of the most down to earth westerns I have ever seen. It comes with an untypical Hollywood ending.
