    Captain Fantastic (2016) - 7.9
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3553976/
    In the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a father devoted to raising his six kids with a rigorous physical and intellectual education is forced to leave his paradise and enter the world, challenging his idea of what it means to be a parent.

    A beautiful movie. I still wonder what the last scene means.

    Also wasted time on Ghostbusters (2016), Suicide Squad (2016).

    I saw this movie in theaters, but recently watched it again at home. It's hilarious although at times the humor is a little absurd, which I enjoy, but some don't. All in all a great movie.

    I watched Lucy recently and really enjoyed it. Loved the cinematography and storytelling. Concept was very simple actually, essentially like Limitless but with Scar Jo.

    I finally got around to watching Terrence Malik's Badlands (1973) after years of putting it off.

    Centered around the young girl Holly's thoughts about the young man who had seduced her and who later brings her so much trouble. It rambles on a bit, and does a little bit of scenario repetition, but for the most part does a good job of grabbing the attention.

    Here're a few I watched and can recommend.

    A few movies of French actress Jeanne Moreau.

    Viva Maria! (1965)
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059956/

    Back to the Wall (1958) [French title: Le dos au mur]
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052753/

    Trapped (2017) [lang: Hindi]
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6206564/
    Engrossing. Almost no dialogue after the first 15 mins.
    Give it a try. There's 'one' 720p with English subs (Hon3y).

    Natarang (2010) [lang: Marathi]
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1590129/
    A poor working man loses his job and decides to start a theater troupe.
    8.4/10

    Approaching the Unknown (2016)

    R | 1h 30min | Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller

    I think there were only 3 characters in the movie.
    Mark Strong plays the main role.

    It is one of those 'going to Mars' / space movies, but it is certainly not an action film. No thrills.
    This could be the reason for its low IMDb rating of 4.8/10

    I liked it.
    I'd recommend this movie for a quiet late night viewing.
    Great for musing and introspection. Philosophical.
    It is bordering on 'boring', but I never felt it so.
    Mark's musings as he makes his nearly 300 day journey to Mars and the little events during his voyage, retains the audience attention.

    The story is about Mark Strong, who manages to invent a way to make water from 'dust'.
    Using this, he decides to take a one-way trip to Mars.

    Monster Hunt(2015) [Chinese]

    Here's the plot from IMDb. You decide if you want to watch it :-p

    In an ancient world where monsters rule the land while humans keep to their own kingdom, a baby monster, Wuba, is born to a human father and monster queen. When mortals and creatures alike set out to capture the newborn, Wuba's adventure begins. The cute baby monster Huba is the child of a human man and a monster queen, threatened by both monster-hating humans and monsters attempting to capture the new-born in an ancient world based on medieval China.

    I watched the English dubbed version and liked all aspects of the movie.
    Very enjoyable.

    The female lead Baihe Bai was fun to watch.

    Pretty good action sequences.

    Voices of Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Steve Martin.

    Nice feel good movie. The alien English used by Parsons is quite catchy.

    Courage fuyons (1979) [French]

    Stars : Jean Rochefort, Catherine Deneuve

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079003/

    Not sure if there was a plot, but wondered if our 'Sri' resembled Rochefort in his younger days !

    Interesting Documentary film, that is shot well.
    It needs to be watched without disturbance.
    There is a good review on IMDb.

    The director Pan Nalin, has a few other good movies to his name.

    A Decent Man (2015) [lang:french, 'Je ne suis pas salaude']
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4084060/

    Here's a proper critic's review of the film. Maybe read it after you watch the film, if you do.

    Movie can perhaps be compared to Michael Douglas' 'Fallen Down', but am not entirely sure.


    Ventilator (2016) [lang: Hindi]
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6120548/

    Humorous and poignant. A very simple story but not a dull moment.

    Amma und Appa (2014) [lang: German]
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3412858/

    Biographical documentary that depicts the developments when a European woman and a Indian man decide to get married. Some contextual knowledge may be needed to appreciate the subtleties of the movie. Very well made.
