That sounds really interesting. Will have to figure out how to watch it here. Thanks for telling us about it!I just got done watching the Ukrainian movie Atlantis (Атлантида), and wanted to share. This film was made in 2019/2020 and is set in 2025 in the immediate aftermath of a war in which Ukraine has improbably defeated Russia (talk about life imitating art, huh?). There's not a lot of plot per se, but it really does an incredible job of evoking the immense tragedies wrought by war, some of which last well after the shooting has stopped.
Beyond the strange parallels to the current situation, it's a very cinematically interesting film, consisting of only 28 mostly wide, long shots over its 1.5 hour plus running time.
It's definitely worth a watch. AFAIK it's available in the US only for rent via Apple TV, or via the subscription service Fandor, which is how I watched it.
If you haven't seen it yet, maybe you could try Katla:
I'm also enjoying We Own This City. Jon Bernthal's performance (as Wayne Jenkins) is incredible. The constant hopping between timelines is a bit jarring, but overall it's a well told story, and one that deserves more attention. WOTC makes a great companion piece to The Wire which I similarly regard as the greatest show ever made.That sounds really interesting. Will have to figure out how to watch it here. Thanks for telling us about it!
I'm currently watching the final season of the absolutely brilliant Better Call Saul, and today I'll watch the 5th episode of the 6-episode miniseries We Own This City, in which David Simon (of The Wire fame, still easily the best TV show I've ever seen) returns to Baltimore for a look at some of the very shady things that have really happened there since the days of The Wire.
I normally don't get too into supernatural stuff, but after watching the trailer, I'll put this on my shortlist and give it a shot.If you haven't seen it yet, maybe you could try Katla:
Katla: Created by Sigurjón Kjartansson, Baltasar Kormákur. With Guðrún Ýr Eyfjörð, Íris Tanja Flygenring, Ingvar Sigurdsson, Aliette Opheim. One year after the violent eruption of the subglacial volcano Katla, the peace and tranquility in the small town of Vik is dramatically disturbed.www.imdb.com
A bit different take on regular Nordic noir, adding a layer of strange to the usual crime baseline.
I watched that recently, and really enjoyed it. You can play the game of "what was he/she in?", since the pool of Icelandic actors is quite small. Nevertheless, another cracking Icelandic series.I normally don't get too into supernatural stuff, but after watching the trailer, I'll put this on my shortlist and give it a shot.
