Uncut Gems with Adam Sandler. This is not a comedy, but it does have it's amusing moments. One word describes this movie. Intense. Loved it.

Saw Knives Out, a movie much hyped as the Oscars draw nearer. This has Daniel Craig in the role as an amateur sleuth brought in to investigate a supposed suicide. Much use of flashbacks, plot twists and numerous red herrings but the film, for me, never gets beyond tedious. The cast includes Chris Pine, Christopher Plummer, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon and Jamie Lee Curtis but does not add up to the sum of its parts. Craig wanders into "ham" territory and this is not a good audition from him for any post Bond roles.

Avoid.

Couldn't really get into Uncut Gems....maybe Sandler was miscast...????

 

However there s another screener released that is just brilliant.

 

Portrait of a Lady On Fire.

 

I loved this film....beautiful in its storytelling and production. Top Marks.

Thought Sandler was perfect as the frenetic compulsive gambler, trying to stay one step ahead of the loan sharks. Problem is people only want to see him in comedy roles.

I can't find it now, but I watched a much worse one than that about the Russian prisons in Siberia.... 

 

The inmates were walked down the corridor with their hands behind their back & their hands had to be higher than their head so they had to stoop low (Try it yourself) & all the time there was these huge German Shepherds barking away at them... 

 

Wish I could find the show, if anything doesn't scare the <deleted> out of you about going to prison that will...
