B007 Ep 142 – A Fantastic Woman – Bombshell The Hedy Lamarr Story – Sweet Country – Erase And Forget – You Were Never Really Here

Bina007 reviews five films out in the UK right now.  The first is the superb winner of the Best Foreign Language Oscar, A FANTASTIC WOMAN; at 6m10s in, the equally compelling documentary about Hollywood star and inventor of the concept behind wifi! BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY; at 13m30s, the outstanding Aussie western SWEET COUNTRY; at 20m, the problematic doc about the man who inspired Rambo II, ERASE AND FORGET; and finally, at 24m25s, the equally problematic but far more accomplished ultra-violent revenge thriller YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE starring Joaquin Phoenix.

B007 Ep 139 – The Mercy – Phantom Thread

Bina007 begins by reviewing The Mercy, starring Colin Firth as the round the world yachtsmen Donald Crowhurst in the infamous 1968 Golden Globe race, out in the UK on Feb 9th.  Then at 12 minutes in, she reviews Paul Thomas Anderson’s deliciously slippery melodrama starring an award-nominated Daniel Day-Lewis as a 1950s fashion designer, Lesley Manville as his Mrs Danvers like sister, and Vicky Krieps as his wilful muse.

Brody-Roman-J-Israel-Esq

This week I review the fascinating character driven legal drama Roman J Israel Esq. starring an Oscar nominated Denzel Washington and, at 10 minutes in, the superb but tragic World War One drama Journey’s End starring an astonishingly good Sam Claflin, Asa Butterfield and Paul Bettany.
