Movies This Week – 10-07-19
We’re so disappointed that the new Jim Jarmusch film The Dead Don’t Die is a bit crap, but such is life! They can’t all be good, and Paterson was a little slice of loveliness!
It’s a bit of a nonentity of a week, with the only film worth mentioning is a documentary about Steve Bannon called The Brink! Nothing challenges our top five, so it’s as you were…
Dates for all upcoming movies can be found here.
