Official Secrets

Gripping and illuminating

(Edit) 18/03/2020

After a slow start during the first half the pace quickens and tension mounts culminating in a surprising ending.

Based on a true story it puts a spotlight on the machinations and corrupt behaviour of the US and UK governments prior to the Iraq war.

I thought it was acted well - Keira Knightley was believable as Katherine Gunn, and the supporting cast were also excellent.

I hadn't known about this case before watching the film and so for me it was highly illuminating.

I highly recommend that everyone see this film.

Sully

Amazing performance from Tom Hanks

(Edit) 21/08/2017

I really enjoyed this film which held my attention from beginning to end.

A great portrayal of an amazing achievement by Captain Phillips.

In the Cut

Tasteless

(Edit) 17/03/2017

This film was pornographic and focused largely on the main female character's sexual exploits or lack of,

I switched off after 30 minutes I am shocked that an actress of Meg Ryan's calibre agreed to do this film

The Homesman

A let-down

(Edit) 15/06/2016

This film was very disappointing. On the face of it there is a storyline, showing the difficulties faced by a single woman traversing

the West, and how women suffering mental distress were treated (taken to a parsonage and away from their families} but

the plot wore thin when the heroine died, and the cowboy showed himself to be superficial and feckless.

I felt that I had wasted two hours watching this.
