    Come and see was excellent. If I remember correctly, in one occasion a journalist asked Klimov why he stopped directing films after Come and see, Klimov answered: Everything was said with Come and see...

    A charity shop purchase - double sided disc plus an extra disc of bonus material.

    We've just spent a pleasant two evenings watching the film. Ingélou had seen it when it first came out but hadn't made much of it being too young to understand all the themes. It was my first time seeing it and we both found it outstanding. Excellent cast - mostly British- and a great story with plenty of time to develop character and explore the nature of the Russian revolution. David Lean at his best.

    ^ Also Tom Courtney as a revolutionary! Omar Sharif was a perfect choice for the lead though, he plays it with quiet dignity. The final scene is sad.

    The last film I watched was on subscription television. It was "Red Sun", made in the 1970s with Charles Bronson, Alain Delon, Ursula Andress and a Japanese actor. It was an extremely unusual film but highly recommended:

    Here's the trailer:

    The Japanese actor was Toshiro Mifune. And you're right, this is a movie worth recommending.

    Thank you for that. I found it interesting and thought-provoking on a number of levels; funny, violent, touching and unpredictable. I kept thinking "where's this going"? And Alain Delon - what can I say but "be still my beating heart"!!

    Murder on the Orient Express (1974)

    Expertly directed, filmed, and acted - 4/5 stars

    I love how the background events are given up front, and their connection to the murder is made clear over the course of the investigation. Bacall was my favorite of the group on the train, and Finney and Connery were also terrific.

    About as good as the first one...even if the story got a bit weird with Quill going out to find his long lost father (played by Kurt Russell). The cast members have a nice chemistry & add plenty of humor which helps to lighten up the long battle scenes.
