Watched The Normal Heart

Gay campaigners searching for recognition of the early eighties AIDS epidemic and their pursuit of funding.
I thought is was magnificent.
A little film, not released on circuit.


Jimi gives it 5/5.

Watched Three Identical Strangers. Thought it was pretty bloody awful. What a waste of great potential. 2/5

And 22 July. despite the lukewarm reception from critics, I thought it was pretty good, albeit long-winded. 3.5/5

Watched Lego Scooby-Doo!: Haunted Hollywood. I doubt you need a review. :lol:

I forgot to write about this one earlier: The Death of Stalin (Mandarin title: 史達林死了沒?/ Shidalin si le mei?).

Deliciously wicked and funny. Not a documentary, but true enough in how people act under such systems. Recommended. :thumbsup:
