Goya’s Ghosts.  Forman’s last film. Unfortunately, not very good. I’d avoid it.

This one has it all - escort services, Shemp Howard, chair rides, a diving horse, and Isham Jones.

On Netflix. Very well acted.  A sci fi psychological thriller.  Nominated for a bunch of awards.

This one, which is on Netflix, is another sci fi movie and it’s not what you may think.

 I don't usually follow this thread, but want to advocate for "Mudbound".

Sorry if it has been discussed/dismissed earlier.

I thought it was powerful. Ethan Hawke is doing good work these days.

Thanks much, looking forward to it.

I ordered this set today from Amazon UK—I know that BillF will approve! Now I just need to get an all-region Blu-Ray/DVD player:

Woodfall: A Revolution in British Cinema

Having now seen it, totally agree about First Reformed.

Had quite the discussion with some friends about the ending of that one. I sort of liked it. They did not! I agree about Hawke, though. "Juliet, Naked" looks interesting (er...as a movie, that is!)

Leave No Trace - powerful film.

Agreed.  Great attention to detail and nuance. Another stunning actress (not in the sense of beautiful). It was made by the director of Winter's Bone.  

Incidentally, ever since seeing Leave No Trace I've been trying to peel oranges in single strips, like the girl and her father do. Seems to work best with Valencias and Clementines.

Support the Girls.   Best American film about working people  in years.
