    I’m halfway through Uncut Gems. It’s been riveting so far.

    The FBI aren't obliged to admit wrongdoing unless directly implicated in framing someone...

    The point is Jewell could conceivably have had an accomplice who made the call. All the film shows is somebody put down a bag and Jewell had a "feeling". Why?? Does he explain the 'feeling'? Why was he in that neck of the crowd along with an adequate amount of protection?

    So, it's not that I believe he wasn't 'innocent', but I put to you the film doesn't explain why he was, enough.

    Being unable to be at two places at the same time is circumstantial, not 'proof'.

    Thanks for that.

    That was an interesting read up comparison, but it does essentially back up my point of it being poorly made and especially the capture of the real bomber.

    This film just leaves you with more questions than answers.

    Fury. 9/10

    Another brilliant film highlighting the brutality of war.

    Yesterday. Not a fan of the Beatles but this was a great film, thoroughly enjoyable.

    Uncut gems. Gave up with it just over half way through, complete mess of a film.

    Watched Son of Saul last night, thought it was a harrowing film, however I didn’t understand the ending.

    It's a very good war movie. Probably the best since SPR and The Thin Red Line.

    Although the beginning is a bit odd with the German officer riding around the battlefield on a horse and then being jumped by Brad Pitt. I didn't get it, unless it was a nod to The Big Red One?
