Rope is great. Probably saw it when I was a young teenager and didn’t know it was a Hitchcock film and didnt apprentice or notice the long takes back then.

A very underrated Hitchcock for me.

I’ll be recording: A Hidden Life by Malick, Young And Innocent which is an earlyish Hitchcock i’ve never seen and Meek’s Cutoff by Kelly Reichardt which i’ve also never seen on TV before - loved First Cow!

Blindspotting is a strong recommendation from me.

I watched it because of the Psychoville episode inspired by it

Think it’s great

I missed Meek’s Cutoff when it was briefly on MUBI so I’m looking forward to this in particular!

though I have to say, absolutely bizarre channel for it to be showing on

was convinced it would have been Film4

Yeah it totally caught me off guard. :sweat_smile: Probably sandwiched in between Dolph Lundgren and Bruce Willis B Movies you’ve never heard of.

Just saw that The Last Black Man In San Francisco has just been added to BBC2 next Sunday (25th). Highly recommended.

They have Moonlight and Queen & Slim on the week after so might all be part of a BHM series for Oct.

Always forget how amazing this is. Watched it again last night and it’s as funny as ever.
