    I can see how it has a status as a classic, and I admire the craftsmanship that went into making it, but I prefer the filthy, bloody 1980's version of this story. It goes to some very dark places this version only hints at. Still, I recommend this film to fans of old black and white films and the "Hollywoodland" era of American filmmaking.

    The New Greatness Case

    ★★★★

    Well made, thematically very important film about dissent in modern Russia. The country is slowly but surely headed to a future resembling the DPRK. This would not necessarily be a problem for me (let Russians enjoy the fruits of their history and culture), but the problem is that authoritarian hellholes are usually also aggressive towards their neighbors - as we can see from the brutal invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. I tip my hat to the brave dissidents of Russia who face the fear and threats and stand up to dictator Putin and his pathetic minions; this film honors those brave souls.

    Disturbing but absolutely essential viewing to everyone. I read the book "Prophet's Prey" about a year ago, and have had an interest in this case since then; hence, I was happy to see that the filmmakers behind Keep Sweet have used every minute of the series purposefully. It's crazy to think this is happening in a Western country in the 21st Century, but it is - watch this to be convinced. Trigger warning to victims of any kind of abuse.

    ★★★★

    A New York jeweler gambles with some large amounts of money - and possibly his own life. Wow - how refreshing to see something unusual, unpredictable and inspired these days! Sandler is amazing in the film, and the directors give the film an almost unbearable, unrelenting tension that makes you stick to the screen. Love the subtle hints at a supernatural force with the massive jewel at the center of the story; very unusual storytelling. Great film.
