Watched Gaspar Noé's movie Vortex (2021) last night.  This hit home.

 

A retired psychiatrist with dementia and a struggling author with a heart condition live their final days together in an apartment.

 

This film deals with an aging couple coming to terms with their deaths and the impending doom that awaits them. In short, it's a film about old age, dementia, separation & eventual death.  When the brain disintegrates before the heart.

 

Gaspar Noé's movies aren't generally for the faint of heart & are rather unusual. This one was filmed in Split screen following 2 characters. & in French, though well subtitled.

Season 3 of COBRA is on PBS Passport. (Not sure when it will be televised or if it’s on the free app.) This is a UK drama series where top level government officials are fending off threats to national security, and as a result, dealing with the problems that arise in their personal lives.

2 comments (5/17/24) Lol, nope - was in French I am guessing with ENGLISH captions. I just DO NOT understand WHY the "version" of whatever PBS decides to air in the USA cannot be spoken in English. Anyway, glad I got to see it and now know it is NOT one for me.

@SummerIsTooHOT   I really wanted to watch The Paris Murders, but when I saw it was with English subtitles, I gave up. It’s too hard to keep up with the subtitles. I do like the foreign tv shows that have English (usually British English) voice over, e.g. Money Heist on Netflix (Spanish with English voice over).

@SummerIsTooHOT   Wish I had something new to share but my life is mostly chores 😉 followed by 20 minute sauna.  My husband has begun crying through most of it, as we moved the seat up for more heat exposure.

 

Have you watched Maryland on PBS, looks interesting.  I am still watching Max Miler on Youtube most every night.  Food and history in about 15 minutes and it hits the spot.

My favorite movies about horses are Seabiscuit and Secretariat, both heartwarming stories about unlikely heroes.

 

These days, I will no longer watch the races on tv. In recent years, many horses are dying at the tracks, all because of the $$$$$$. 😢

White Collar on Netflix. This a tv series with six seasons. I just watched the first three episodes, and I’m hooked! 

 

A young convicted criminal, whose expertise includes forgery, art theft, etc., is let out of prison early to help the FBI solve white collar crimes, hopeful of getting a new lease on life, all while having his own agenda to be free again.

 

So you have a mix of crime solving with a big sense of humor. Quite a treat, and it’s TV-14 rated. 👍 The characters (and the actors) are quite charming and charismatic, with a good dose of Yin and Yang going on. Great entertainment and fun.

Well written, good acting...

Set in a small rust belt town in Pennsylvania, chief of police Del Harris takes on an investigation when the son of the woman he loves is accused of murder. (fiction, based on a novel by Phillpp Meyer

The Zone Of Interest  (PG-13, German w/English subtitles)

 

Won Oscar for Best International Feature Film (Poland)

Won Oscar for Best Sound

Oscar nominated for Best Picture, Director, and Adapted Screenplay

 

An excellent, but disturbing film, it is not one that you watch for entertainment. This is the story of the commandant of the Auschwitz concentration camp and his family, as they live an idyllic life just on the other side of the wall from the horrors of the camp. It is unlike most films made about the Holocaust in that it does not take the viewer inside the camp, yet we are keenly aware of what is taking place. At the end of the film are pictures from the Auschwitz Holocaust Memorial.

 

Don’t be put off because of the subtitles. It is easy to follow, and the pictures alone speak dramatically.

 

Streaming on Max, for rent on Prime Video

@SummerIsTooHOT   I liked many of the Grantchester episodes!  Mostly I like Robson Green so I watch some of the not so good ones too.  It it getting long in the tooth though.  Hard to believe they are going to try and do another season without it seeming to be stale.
