Dear master roger i am always eager to hear your favourite new movies 2022. Did you love 'Dune' visuals. But your movie list always far from academy awards. Have you seen any good movie in this year!

I will have to think about that as nothing  immediately comes to mind. I think I previously mentioned 'Compartment No 9'.

Were you watching it upside-down? (I only know Compartment No.6.)

Byre - you passed Roger's attention test... or maybe there is a companion film shot from the POV of Irina, the girlfriend who didn't come on the journey. Thanks, Roger for calling our attention to this film.

Yeah once you said 'compartment no. 6' what's your general thoughts about cinematography oscar nominations and won film!

No 6!!!! You are right I have made that mistake a lot.

I also liked 'Drive My Car'. It is quite 'slow' for some time but very rewarding in the end. We were watching Huston's 'The Dead' last night and that has a similar effect. A slow establishing of the characters and the world they inhabit, seemingly drifting to an inevitable conclusion and then bang! It hits you with an emotional wallop. Even being familiar with the story and having seen the film before it is still very effective and effecting.

Yeah master roger i also seen 'drive my car'. Its very dead slow movie. Feels like very length. I like to ask something about the story. You could help me. Here's my doubt about 'drive my car's. Yūsuke returns home early one day, he finds his wife having sex with a young man, presumably Takatsuki. He leaves silently without being noticed and does not bring it up with her. He misunderstood that young boy might he Takatsuki. Right? But the affair scene was real or fully his imagination?.

I thought he knew who it was. That did confuse me a little as well.

Now i am wondering why some screenplay like that. Why did they handover some scene in audience hand. Me and my friend got argument about that scene.
