The Young Lions. Marlon Brando , Montgomery Clift , Dean Martin and Barbara Rush.
Anti war movie with Brando playing a German officer who gradually becomes disillusioned with the Nazi cause. Clift and Martin play two GIs .Maximilian Schell plays Brando’s commanding officer who commits suicide part way through.
Good WW2 war film based on Irwin Shaw’s book.

Parasite. Not sure I have seen anything quite like it. Kept me interested all the way through, and a very quirky story about a family on the breadline who can best be described as the ultimate chancers in Korea. Lot's of strange twists and turns and highly entertaining. Not sure I will watch it again but a highly entertaining 8/10 from me

Finally got through to the end of The Irishman.

Bit of an odyssey this one coming in at 3.5 hours. Could it have come in shorter? Possibly. Would I have enjoyed it at the cinema? Probably not. But that's the thing - with the advent of Netflix et al, directors don't have to make films to suit a cinema audience. Viewers at home can watch it in 2/3/4 separate sittings. It's somewhat refreshing.

Back to the film. I did actually enjoy it but it's not for everyone. If you weren't into Goodfellas/Casino/Mean Streets etc, then this probably isn't for you. Just to have De Niro, Pesci, Pacino & Keitel on the same screen, sometimes at the same time, was a joy to behold. One more time for the road!

7/10
