Mulholland Dr is the ideal exception to that rule. The plot's only slightly-below-the-surface incoherent so you only need to make a small leap to reach your own idea of what the fuck's going on. It made a lot more sense to me than Blue Velvet or blardy Beyond The Black Rainbow. Also, I'm a sucker for films that straddle several genres and throw in some quality comic relief. The first half originally being a proposed TV pilot makes for an interesting format too.

Fair enough but I'm kinda like don't make me do the fuckin work, Dave. Story-telling is the director's job, I don't want to still be trying to figure out their wank once the credits have are rolling.

Ip Man Legacy - fantastic fight scenes with Tony Jaa, Michelle Yeoh and Dave Bautista.

Bumblebee - probably the first Transformers movie which get the transformation right on film.

Dopesick Nation on vice, 2 recovering addicts trying to help junkies in Florida. She literally saves a guy's life on camera in this episode.

Alita: Battle Angel
This film appropriately transform manga to film. The art direction and visuals are stunning, and the characters are well-developed. The actors/voices are great. But the story seems somewhat forced at times. Overall, this is very likeable.

Recently watched one million movies and tv shows on Singapore airlines flying to europe and back here were my highlights (in order)

1. Green Book (a little bit cliche and cheesy but still a touching tale.
2. Capote (really addictive watch, will read book asap)
3. The old man and the gun (almost fell inlove with the charming clepto myself)
4. No activity (hilarious aussie tv show)
5. 15 shorts ( 15 short films from Singapore, true stories , pretty dark shit but good watch)

I also watched an embarrassing drama series i will never disclose (disclose is a shit bans) and the Great Gatsby which is a rather bizarre pile of shit .

I also watched the entirety of After Life with Ricky Gervais when i was recovering from jetlag yesterday. I usually find ricky painful after two episodes, but this show was quite amusing.
