From my dim and distant past I well remember the Gaumont in my home town. I did not realise it must have been part of a chain like Rank's Odeon cinemas. Close to the main street there were ten cinemas, some playing first run features but always with the addition a cheap 'B' movie, others showing double bill reruns of moves about a year old, the latter for virtual peanuts!

Hidden Figures
Lion
Hacksaw Ridge

I only saw Hidden Figures which I really enjoyed. The other two I saw last year which I equally enjoyed were -

Manchester by the Sea
The Assassin - a masterful and beautiful film by the Taiwanese director Hou Hsiao-hsian


Sadly the official good trailer does little justice to the actual film.

If I had a criticism of Dunkirk is that it was just too clean, as in no blood at all, anywhere. Sure those guys out there saw plenty.

I'll stick with 'Moonlight', the most compelling film I've seen in the last few years. It takes more than a single viewing to wrap yourself around Chiron/Little/Black's story.
The last 20 minutes of Moonlight are a tour de force of understated film making.
Cheers ... ( and just one more reason why I love living in Thailand )
