Film Club #11: WHAT HAPPENED, MISS SIMONE? (Wednesday 8pm)

New week, new film club! This time we’ll be watching a music documentary.

Please have a look around Netflix to see what is on offer. Anything catch your fancy? You may nominate one or two titles that you want to watch with us. The deadline for nominations is on Tuesday at 8pm (I will be reminding you by bumping this thread).

Once that deadline has been reached, I will post a poll with the suggested titles and we vote! Poll closes at 6pm on Wednesday, 2 hours before watching commences. You have the option of joining in a live chat in a DM thread as we all watch the film (you can sign up for this later), or you can meet us back here to discuss the film afterwards. Anyone is welcome to join, you don’t need to have been in the film club before or anything.

Let’s get nominating!

I’ve not seen 20 feet from stardom and it’s on Netflix and meant to be good

Similarly non-Netflix, the Wilco documentary I Am Trying to Break Your Heart is free to watch here until tomorrow, but slightly scared it’ll disappear in the middle of the day rather than at the end so it’d be a risky choice:

Also I guess might be difficult for watching on a tv possibly.

i’ll pick

rolling thunder revue (2019)
what happened miss simone? (2015)

Rolling Thunder was my first thought, but it is a bit long…

no worries. gives people a chance to GET MORE SUGGESTIONS IN PLS

There’s not much to suggest really, quite a small category.

I was going to suggest The Two Killings of Sam Cooke but I watched the trailer and it looked not good so :man_shrugging:

I think it looks promising, so I’ll nominate it! Also The Devil at the Crossroads (about Robert Johnson), could someone please make sure real quick that it’s on UK Netflix as well? I’ll check out the youtube suggestions for availability and then post the poll.

yep! i thought about going for that one too. it’s quite short though.

As @japes says, it is pretty short. Maybe if it was selected it could be a double bill with something else short.

The Sam Cooke one is only an hour and a quarter or something too.

The Nixon/Johnny Cash one and the Miami Showband ones on Netflix are good. Miami Showband story’s a heartbreaker tbf

Vote away! Poll closes at 6pm tomorrow, and at 8pm we watch the film with the most votes. If you want to be part of the DM live chat thread (highly recommended), please drop your name in the second poll.

Please note that because we’ve branched out to Youtube for this one, I have excluded films that are not on my foreign Netflix for this one. I have also included an option for a double bill of The Devil at the Crossroads and The Two Killings of Sam Cooke, as they are both quite short.
