    Behind the Curve


    It takes 90 minutes but eventually this otherwise frustrating movie (like, shout at the screen frustrating) gets to a really interesting question: where in your life are you like a flat earther? where are you constructing a reality?

    Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police


    The rise and demise of The Police as told through the lense of Andy Summers, the guitarist and probably lesser known of the three band members. 

    This is the sort of documentary that I could watch all day and all night and into the early hours of the morning and contemplate rewatching the next day.

    The story of his relationship with his wife and family, which is woven through, is heartbreaking. 

    I'd like to see more of his photography. What an awesome record and memory. I imagine him getting lost in that archive for days.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout


    Brace yourself for some serious taking-the-piss level lens flare. I was so distracted I forgot to be wowed by how beautiful it looks in Kashmir. Must visit there one day and see it for myself.
