Did you manage to watch the film, RAFA? It's a bit silly in places but some nice street scenes.

Not yet, Mo, I'll try to next weekend, though watching movies in my computer isn't the best cinematographic experience, tbh

Of course, it's much better watching on TV. Can you get Talking Pictures over there, RAFA as it was on last night.

Talking Pictures is a platform that pops up often in discussions with Brit friends, but we can't access that here to my knowledge. The closest available to us is Filmin, that houses thousands of movies, and which I should subscribe to, but not sure if I'd find the time to capitalise on it.

If you're a Jane Fonda fan (who isn't)  then she looks amazing in the superb " They shoot horses, Don't they?" . Re watched the other day after many years and still brilliant although a little depressing.

Long time no see, o beloved sponsor! I watched that on Spanish tv eons ago; good movie, but I make you right, not the most cheerful out there.

Finally watched "The Trial of the Chicago 7" over the weekend.
Really well done "docu-drama", I was afraid a 2 hour+ court room film would be a "snoozer" , but, oh no...

I re-watched "Klute" the other day, "Horses" is also available on the Criterion Channel ( I took a subscription last Winter, when I canceled my DVD Netflix subscription) it's on my list.
ALSO worth checking out if you have the Criterion Channel is "Palermo Shooting" directed by Wim Wenders, one of my favs ever since I saw "Wings of Desire" years ago..
