Death of Stalin, Two Popes, Lost in Translation, Straight Up, The Green Book, Marriage Story, Only You, Joker, Roma, Bohemian Rhapsody, Blinded by the Light, Berlin I Love You, Boyhood, The Babadook, Incendies, Knives Out, Jumanji: The Next Level, Peanut Butter Falcon, Thoroughbreds, Nightcrawler, Leave No Trace, The Big Short, The Favourite, Captain Fantastic, The Great Gatsby, Begin Again, A Monster Calls, At Eternity's Gate, My Life As a Courgette, The Meyerowitz Stories, Love Marriage Repeat, Iam Dolomite, Julie & Julia, Pain & Glory, Stranger Than Fiction, Thunder Road, Zathura: A Space Adventure, The Bookshop.

A few new films. A few recent films. A few I always meant to watch but never got around to. A couple I've seen before but wanted to watch again.

I'd recommend;
Incendies: Powerful with a genuine o.m.g. moment- though it does rely on a couple of huge coincidences so you have to suspend disbelief.
Marriage Story: Adam Driver just became my favourite actor.
The Babadook: Really clever and thought provoking.
Leave No Trace: Engaging.
Captain Fantastic: An interesting and beautiful film.
Incendies: i guessed the twist when they met with the lawyer at the beginning but the movie runs deeper than its shocking gimmick — it’s radical empathy (as good is Villeneuve’s Polytechnique about a real-life school shooting in Montreal — it’s Guernica cinema)

My Life as a Cucumber: A perfect film.

Pain & Glory: I remain moved by its primal scene — the definitive expression of gay desire’s essential innocence; Almodovar’s masterpiece?
"They love each other so much, they think they hate each other."

Imagine paying $1000 to hear "Don't Dream It's Over" instead of "Go Your Own Way"

Fleetwood Mac helped me through a time of heartbreak. 12 years later, they broke my heart.
