    Roma definitely deserves a mention on this thread. Thought it was excellent.

    High Rise - J G Ballard Adaptation

    I've loved pretty much all his films so far. High Rise is probably the weakest of the bunch, but I still really like it. Kill List and A Field In England are my faves.

    The Apprentice 2018

    I still love the show, but it's a sad state of affairs when someone has made the final by cooking nut milk in daddy's kitchen for three months. Let alone her utterly clueless take on marketing.

    Why on earth would you expect a 22 year old to own her own tennis courts?

    I really need to watch The Endless. Its one I keep meaning to get round too.

    Best Films of 2018

    Just realised that I forgot to put Mamma Mia Here We Go Again in my top ten. And if I'm honest with myself, it's probably the one I'll re watch the most (already seen it three times).

    Only in rllmuk could a thread about the best films of the year turn into a thread about the worst films of the year.

    I think it’s been a really great year. I’m struggling to get my list down to ten.

    I’ve pretty much got my top ten sorted. Just waiting to see Roma, as that’s probably the last new film I’ll watch this year.

    Shoplifters (2018) A group living on the edge of society come together as a family as they attempt to make ends meat and enjoy life in the moment. This film simply blew me away. I’d only seen a couple of Koreeda’s films before this, but I’m now determined to track them all down. It’s so skilfully told, that when the emotional climax’s happen, they do so with an incredibly deft touch. All the cast are superb, but Sakura Ando is the absolute standout as the mother figure relishing being part of a family. 5/5

    High And Low (1963) A kidnapping gone wrong in Kurosawa's gripping tale of crime and class divide. I'm on a real Kurosawa trip at the moment, and am especially trying to catch up with his non samurai films which I haven't seen before. This was great, and like so many of his films you can really see how it influenced western cinema as it feels very modern. One of my favourite Mifune performances as well. Such a watchable actor. You just don't take your eyes off him whenever he's onscreen. 5/5

    What are you reading at the moment?

    If you like this I’d highly recommend you read Into The Air next. Those two books made me somewhat obsessed with mountaineering tales.

    The Thing

    Can’t remember one. Definitely needs doing.

    Clockwork Orange Remake

    If there had to be a remake I'd give it to Jonathan Glazer.
