the abyss (1989)

As 1980s blockbusters go it’s outclassed by the true greats, but despite weirdly shifting tone (is it fun and feel good, is it creepy thriller, idk), the characters and story succeed and make this a pop-corny good time. 

Mayor (2020)

This is an indie documentary about Ramallah’s mayor filmed in 2017, and it’s interesting for its juxtaposition of the outrageous and challenging realities of life in the occupied west bank with the day to day trivia of running a municipality.
