The Last Witness (2018) **½
Post-war journalist uncovers truth about Soviet murder of 20,000 poles, and British cover-up.
Worthy subject deserves attention, execution's a bit flat.

Danger One (2018) *½
Frantic, violent black comedy thriller, feels like the work of Tarantino wannabes rather than real filmmakers.

Fever aka Mountain Fever (2017) *
Boring hostage thriller, filmed mostly in the dark, which may or may not be a bad thing.

Nomads (1985) **½
If you can accept Pierce Brosnan as a French anthropologist, and a thin script (written by the director), then John McTiernan's odd urban nightmare has atmosphere to spare.

Bugsy (1991) ***
Charismatic gangster Ben (don't call him 'Bugsy'!) Siegel (Warren Beatty) moves out to L.A., romances mouthy starlet Virginia Hill (Annette Bening), dreams of building a lucrative hotel complex in the Nevada desert. An interesting tale, professionally made. Not a top rank genre picture, but a solid entry.
