What Movies or TV shows are you watching (2020)

Recommended Posts

@worgeordie thanks for the heads up on the Van der Valk remake, really enjoyed it. My only gripe is that there were just the three episodes.

Thanks for posting this.

 

Writer/Director Corneliu Porumboiu was  a key part of the turn of the century Romanian New Wave.

 

    "12:08 East of Bucharest"
(2006) is an excellent film.

The 2nd half is hysterically funny.

12:08 is the time when the Romanian revolution supposedly began which led to Ceaușescu's overthrow.

 

2009's "Police, Adjective" is a masterpiece, starring New Wave icon Dragos Bucur and co-starring the awesome Vlad Ivanoff ("Four Months, Three Weeks and Two Days", the greatest film of the Romanian New Wave).

 

Note - His film's move at their own pace. He is into real time, not cinema time.

 

Relax, go with it,  and don't let it bother you.

 

 

I wrote the above before viewing "The Whistlers".

 

It's not bad but Ivanoff plays a very restrained character -very different from the 2 films I referenced where he shows a lot of power in fairly short supporting roles.

 

Good to see Porumbiou directing again, after seemingly losing his mind with 2013's "When Evening Falls..." which was a total  mess.

I managed to find a 45 minute documentary entitled, "The men who stole the world" and watched it with a great deal of keenness, as it was about the market crash in 2007+, and if you have seen the movie, "The Big Short" (a superb movie in my opinion and true to form) then this is worth a watch as well.

 

It follows two or three actual people in the spotlight, and Richard Fuld, the CEO of Lehman Bros during the period prior to and after the big collapse and how he lied to the commission investigating the collapse and also focuses on the hundreds of millions of dollars he was able to "earn" from the securitisation and selling of bad housing loans.

 

It just brought home to me again how crooked the American system is, because all of the executives at the top got away with just about everything. More to the point was that the Republican government encouraged house purchasing by just about anybody and everybody (even if they didn't have any money) and allowed the banks to continue with what amounted to fraudulent lending, then fraudulent selling of useless loans.

 

The Obama government tried to rein this in with the Dodd Frank act to oversee the industry to prevent any more shenanigans like this, however the people in the know in this movie are basically saying that the same thing is happening again ever since that act has been revoked/reversed. 

 

Frightening.

Anyone noticed the increase in US Movies that are hardly watchable during indoor night shots. I just exit if they go on too long. A Voice and a White collar bobbing about isnt appealing.

This is Archie Williams. I will never forget this audition for the rest of my life. And I’ll never listen to this song in the same way ever again.

The link works both on by phone and PC without log into Twitter. I too had Twitter awhile back and uninstalled from the phone. Sorry, no idea about your issue.

Frightening.

I tried to find this on my streaming apps & on Youtube (These kind of documentaries are normally free on there) but had no links, could you please give me a pointer as to where I can watch it. 

 

Whilst looking for it I did find a 4 part series called "Meltdown: The men who crashed the world", all 4 parts are on Youtube.

 

Also found a few more similar documentaries on IMDB that I'm going to check out https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword/?keywords=economic-crisis
