MoviePass Adventures: Month 11

This has been a month I didn’t expect to see.  Given all of the self inflicted wounds MoviePass has caused, I was actually able to see some movies with it still.  Here’s the list:

1.) Operation Finale

This film is based on the true life events of the capture and trial of Adolf Eichmann from Argentina by the Israelis.  Eichmann had been hiding out for decades and eluded justice but finally was brought to trial in the early 60s.  The cast was great especially Sir Ben Kingsley and Oscar Isaac.  I will say this is one of my favorite films of 2018.

2.) Juliet, Naked

This film is the story about a young woman named Annie who is dating a man who is obsessed with a 90s rocker named Tucker Crowe.  One day an old demo CD comes in the mail and through hapenstance Annie connects by e-mail to Tucker and develop a friendship and later a relationship.  They both share about their regrets about the past as well as dealing with the struggles of the present.  This was a really good film.  I’m a fan of Rose Byrne already and this was another film of hers I enjoyed.  Ethan Hawke also had a tremendous performance as Tucker.  It was a good film to spend 2 hours watching
