Translated as "He's Back." It's a strange movie, funny in parts, but also basically unsettling, which I think is the whole point.  It's on Netflix for those interested in seeing it.

The Girl In The Spider's Web - Fede Álvarez (2018)

Image result for the girl in the spider's web

Dire and sad. 

I felt sorry for poor Claire Foy.

She's lovely and a fine actor but laughably miscast here.

A pale shadow of the original trilogy and David Fincher's great remake.

The Highwaymen - John Lee Hancock (2019)

Image result for the highwaymen film

Enjoyed the two leads, they work very well together.

The film as a whole was okay but nothing to shout about.

Inversion - Behnam Behzadi (2016)

Image result for inversion film

An interesting family drama which is also a sharp statement about the role of women in Iran.

Inversion refers to a cloud of pollution ( male entitlement) hanging over the city throughout the film.

A Hard Day's Night. I know it's lighter than a feather, but I love this movie, and have a mixed bag of emotions every time I watch it.

LOVE that movie. Was fortunate enough to see it in the age of innocence, before I knew that movies were "art." It plucked my little heartstrings and still does every time.

I just watched it too. I don't think I'd ever seen all of it before.  It is indeed wonderful.

It really is a great movie. I discovered Powell & Pressburge movies about a year ago, and I've really fallen in love with them. There is a powerful humanism that runs through their films that I find attractive and enriching.

Don't miss Powell and Pressburger's magical "I Know Where I'm Going" (1945), with Wendy Hiller.

I've seen IKWIG many times, but was still immediately transfixed when I happened to stumble upon it a week or two ago just when it was starting on TCM. Despite it being well past midnight, I wound up glued to my seat watching it until some time past the halfway point, when the need to get more than five hours of sleep before the workday came calling in the morning finally outweighed the need to see the film through to the end. I still remember the first time my wife saw it more then twenty years ago during a Powell & Pressburger retrospective - she was completely captivated by it, and maintained that it was the most romantic film she'd ever seen. 

I have a special fondness for The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, but given how many great films Powell & Pressburger made, it can be a difficult task to argue that one is more essential than another.
