Just finished watching it with the Missus. The narrative may strike a chord with majority of middle aged indian households. I found the film a bit slow. I also felt that the film could have been built better. The title has no relevance with the film, save for a fleeting dialogue in passing.

However, did enjoy watching it.

'The Man with the Iron Heart' is the story of the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich - Obergruppenfuhrer of the SS and architect of The Final Solution. If you like WWII era movies that focus on side stories (unlike say Dunkirk that shows much more of the war itself), this is a good watch. It looses a bit in the middle (slows down), but Jason Clarke, does make you believe that this is really a high ranking Nazi official you're looking at.

There's another called 'Anthropoid' but I haven't got around to it. From the trailer though it looks like that one shows the czech assassins as the protagonists, this one is much more balanced.

Black Klansman

Spike Lee's new movie, Black Klansman -- the true story of how a black cop infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan. If you don't know who the KKK is in America, you can google.

The ending is very powerful, the way Spike Lee juxtaposed scenes from the Charlottesville riot from last year and President Chump, uh, Trump, saying how there were "fine people" on both sides, juxtaposed with the KKK burning crosses. Having worked with civil rights groups over the years, it gave me chills and brought me to tears.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Lots of folks are talking about the "Crazy Rich Asians" movie. Supposed to be really good. 

Anyone seen it or read the books?

Everyone I know who's seen it really likes it. Of course, they're Asian.

I watched "Apocalypse Now Redux" by Francis Ford Coppola, the integral version of the film which runs at over three hours. It is the first time I have seen this amazing movie. Also watched the documentary "Hearts of Darkness" with footage shot by Eleanor Coppola (the wife of the director) during the making of it, in the Philippines. Almost scarier than the film.

Movie Recommendations

Always wondered about this word "redux," which I have only seen in film context! I suppose I should ask Google!

I love the music for Heart of Darkness.

Have you read the book? I have read a lot of Conrad, but somehow not that short novel. Still, I feel the film conveys his inevitability of despair perfectly.

Basically, "redux" means "restored" here, because he used previously cut scenes. I have not read Conrad at all.

Also watched "Lord Jim" starring Peter O'Toole, also based on a book by Joseph Conrad. Brilliant film.

Yes, time to read the books, Nick!

"Inevitability of despair",
This reminds me of Sieze the Day with Robin Williams, I love the film but I feel sad watching it.
Lord, Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off.

Recovered from an injury, Jim seeks a position on the Patna, a steamer serving the transport of 800 "pilgrims of an exacting faith" to a port on the Red Sea.
I always wondered why the author chose this name for the ship.

And this one is wirth a read too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Ni...27Narcissus%27

In the United States, the novel was first published under the title The Children of the Sea: A Tale of the Forecastle, at the insistence by the publisher, Dodd, Mead and Company, that no one would buy or read a book with the word "nigger" in its title, not because the word was deemed offensive, but because a book about a black man would not sell.

In 'The Hungry' , Shakespeare's 'The lamentable tragedy of Titus Andronicus' is set in a Punjabi, uber rich setting. Shot in a historical fortress somewhere north of Delhi, protagonists Naseeruddin Shah and Tisca Chopra battle for control over a business empire. The names are suitably hindified - Titus becomes Tathagata and Tamora, Tulsi while Aaron has an easier morphing to Arun.
Graphic content aplenty with the ghastly feasting scenes that involve, towards the end - a poor peacock.
Totally worth watching.....subtitles available for non-hindi speakers....

96, a movie loved by the classes as well as the masses. I loved the film. Great acting by the lead couple and the child actors. A different take on Before Sunrise.
