The hell they don't....
White Tiger - a cracking film about a young man on the make in India . He's from the wrong side of the tracks and his employers are loaded . Fun and bad stuff happen . As several reviewers have said - imagine Slumdog Millionaire meets Parasite
The Dig - one of those films which never fails to look stunning . It is about the dig at Sutton Hoo in 1939 ,and the stars are Ralph Fiennes as the local amateur archaelogist and Carey Mulligan as the posh widow who owned the site.Both are note perfect and Fiennes' accent sounds wonderful . Not much happens, a little jeopardy , the shadow of the war , a hint of romance and a few skirmishes in the class war . The real star is Suffolk - it is a truly lovely film to watch. If you like the Detectorists you will love this - and not just because of the subject matter . I loved it.
Both on Netflix - but i'd love to see both films again at the cinema . Remember them ?
I now understand why my first thoughts about Covid-19 were wrong. It is because I didn't see "Contagion".

Watched Avatar with the kids at the weekend, it still looks good, I wonder if we really will see Avatar 2 in December this year.

One of my very favourite films ever Doug. I can still remember the feeling of almost spiritual awe in the Leicester Odeon (or was it ABC ?) when the mothership was first seen.
And talking of Richard Dreyfus , another favourite , Netflix now has American Graffiti . Wonderful cars , girls and music - and , all right ! Wolfman Jack ! A souffle light plot , but the closing credits have the killer punch
Watched crocodile Dundee last night ,,great film
The Conversation (Gene Hackman, Harrison Ford, John Casales) is on iPlayer just now. Worth it for the ending, as well as 1970's tech. I remember seeing it when it first came out....
Watched "The Conversation" last night, it is an unusual film but watchable. You are right about the ending.
