Saw Climax and Overlord on All4 this weekend

Thought the concept and first third of Climax was great. The ending just turned into WTF. Great cinematography, blah, blah but spoiled it for me.

Overlord was a decent watch. Pretty predicable if you read the synopsis but good nonetheless

The Father! The UK release date for The Father is Friday, June 11th 2021

It is directorial debut of Florian Zeller who adapted script from his own stage play. It is a beautifully acted father and daughter story played by Anthony Hopkins (hoping he wins Best Actor Oscar) and Olivia Colman ( also nominated for Best Supporting Actress)
The father is about an aging Welshman who is grappling with escalating memory loss. and I have never seen a film so expertly tells the situation from the perspective of the person who is afflicted. His memory plays tricks with him and the audience is also puzzled. The acting, the screenplay and the direction and the set are all top notch .

Watched La Grande Bellezza. Very pretty scenes and was a joy to look at but couldnt make much of the story.
I enjoyed it but Im not sure Id recommend it to anyone as it can be a bit jarring due to the unstructured narrative.

Silk Road. Wasted opportunity I thought especially given how interesting the source material is. 3/5 at a push.

Got decent reviews on imdb at 5.9 currently. I am intrigued by this kind of stuff so sure I will find it entertaining.
Also watched first 2 parts of the 4 part "this is a robbery" on netflix last night, very good so far!

Paths Of Glory (Kubrick) and Seconds (Frankenheimer). Both superb.
