Great selections there Mark. Some of them we saw together. I can add three more:
Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom – about a blues singer so might not be for you
Mank – another Gary Oldman triumph
Tenet – can’t leave out Christopher Nolan

We have seen brilliant films together and I haven’t thought of Tenet, as that is thought provoking and it made you think. That Gary Oldman film sounded really different and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom could be really intriguing.
