    "Holy Tour" was great, Thanks.
    Just watched "Sometimes, Always, Never", as we are on a Bill Nighy binge. Recommended.

    +1 on this.

    It covers a wide range of taxidermy and does a pretth solid job of examining the artistic side of it as well as the varying philosophones. It includes a nice range of taxidermy, too, from Old Schoolers who work at museums to younger folks running their own shops.

    OK, Amazon Prime, The Amazing Race, Season 28, Episode 5. Chamonix France. Amazing scenery of Mt Blanc. The race part can get annoying, but the views in this episode are over the top.

    Jackboots on Whitehall is kinda funny.

    Team America: World Police meets alternate WW2 History with a touch of Braveheart thrown in.

    I am thinking it must be a Brit thing as I attempted to watch it several months ago and turned it off after 5-minutes...

    Bosch is great.

    I wasn’t disappointed in Young Wallander, either. If you haven’t seen the original “Wallander” series, maybe watch that first. There’s actually two versions of the original, one in English and one in Swedish, both of which are pretty good.

    THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE
    I am still valiantly trying to wrap my head around this Luis Bunuel tour de force of surrealism, but on the surface it is hilarious and well-acted, and delivered with such a frenetic pace that your confusion will be lost in the ensuing shuffle of socio-political slapstick absurdism.

    HEAD COUNT
    This low budget horror endeavor tweaks a number of familiar tropes to wonderful effect. It relocates the cabin-in-the-woods to the desert, culls from a number of Bloody Mary-like urban legends, references Creepy Pasta, and generally does an effective job creating an ominous and disorienting environment. My only complaint is that the ending craps out into generic Blumhouse territory ( there was a perfect spot for the filmmakers to end the film at 1h23m , but instead they opted for a groan-worthy, stereotypically pandering conclusion). Aside from this slight, the film has a lot of sly things happening, many of which slid right by me (when I finally realized what was happening, I went back and rewatched a number of scenes and was amazed at all the Easter Eggs lurking in plain sight). The other cool aspect is that it is refreshingly more psychological than slasher, relying more on mind-fuckery than gore.

    BEYOND THE BLACK RAINBOW
    Visually stunning, aurally arresting (the sound design alone is intense and immersive; one could literally close their eyes and come up with an equally fucked-up nightmare based on the music and sounds emanating from the screen), and a total mindf@#k. The ending is something of a head scratcher and borders on the unexplainable/seriously WTF, however the previous hour-and-40-minutes are mind-bendingly strange.
    This is the first feature film by writer/director Panos Cosmatos, who helmed the equally bonkers Mandy.

    RIYL:
    Baskin; The Neon Demon; Only God Forgives; Berberian Sound Studios; Under The Skin; The Fury; early David Cronenberg

    EXILED
    Johnnie To is one of the undisputed kings of Asian Action Cinema who I feel is often overlooked by western audiences. This is one of his best efforts, imho. When I saw it back upon its initial release I immediately drew comparisons between it and The Wild Bunch, which is one of my all-time favorite films. Here, To updates the motif of the worn out, outdated, and over-the-hill gangster/hitman/outlaw and places it in pre-handover Macau to great effect. Bristling gunfights, double-crosses, and a wealth of classic HK actors make for a compelling blast of drama.



    PS
    Johnnie To's equally stellar THE MISSION is currently available on Kanopy....

    SUTURE (1993)
    If you dig Hitchcockian-styled thrillers, especially ones drenched in a pulp aesthetic, then this indie film from the early 90s is worth a watch. Teeming with murder, double crosses, plot twists, and plenty of psychological thrills.

    I think so, Maybe...but you owe it to yourself to watch the original first.
