Joker: Joaquin Phoenix is amazing but this is a very difficult watch. Unremittingly bleak. Took us 4 days to get through it.

The Two Popes: This is just a joy to watch. Great actors, great story, great dialog, great cinematography. Small beef... while it went in depth into Francis’ actions trying to appease the military junta that overthrew Isabel Peron, it never went into Benedict’s participation in Hit ler Youth. There are a couple of instances where he’s referred to by lay people as a N a z i but it’s never explained.
