Fargo. Just finished the movie. Holy shit that was good. Acting, story, cinematography, music, setting.

I know we have a movie review forum, but ehhh I'd rather see suggestions pop-up. Watched "The Way" last week with Martin Sheen as a dad who walks along the Camino de Santiago, not the most interesting side-characters, but the setting is certainly beautiful.

Fargo "A", The Way "B"

Fargo was great, but I think The Hudsucker Proxy is the Coen brother's masterpiece.

As far as recent films go, I really liked the new Blade Runner.

The Night Manager on Amazon Prime

If you like character driven spy drama, it's worthy. I'm deliberately going slow.

Loved that! Watched the first episode the night it aired; then had to get the rest from Amazon or Hulu or something.

Have yet to see Hudsucker Proxy, but did watch Raising Arizona tonight. Funny and weird, but a little too silly at times. B+

Watched Ozark on Netflix, just the first episode so far. Looks pretty fucking good

I got about halfway through and I don't know how or why but I just stopped watching. Have always meant to finish it out but at this point I'd probably have to start at the beginning again.
