I've watched a couple of films recently which I thought were quite good, a bit odd in their styling maybe, but worth a watch if you have nothing better to do. Both based on actual events.
The Grey Zone - this is about the Jewish sonderkommando uprising in Auschwitz 2 as well as the incident when a survivor of a mass gassing is found alive.
The Photographer of Mauthausen is about a Jewish photographer who secretly hid photographic negatives detailing life in the camp.
Watching Dark City tonight. Only a few minutes in and don't doubt it will be a decent movie, decent sound design in parts which is part of why I watch films, but it has one of those 'chugging' Action scores I think first popularised around the time of the film Speed. I'm never going to be able to sleep watching it.
Tried The Running Man last night, this is a daft Arnie film, I thought it might be good due to the Harold Faltermeyer soundtrack but it's just a daft film and not that good so I turned it off and went back to film noir, watching the Warner Bros film White Heat to aid my sleep, it worked as I fell asleep halfway through.
Marathon Man - Starts off really promising, 70s thriller, but doesn't seem to know what to do with itself by the end. 6/10
Don't Look Now - Glad I rewatched this at it confirms to me that Nicolas Roeg is a bit overrated as a director. This always makes best of british film lists but I don't see it myself. Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland are not a bad cast but it seems I have a bit of an aversion to the way British actors always have plummy accents. 4/10
American Gigolo - Richard Gere. Again a rewatch for the first time in years but I love this film. It's a bit one dimensional but quite a funny concept. 7.5/10
