- The Handmaid's Tale (Bruce Miller 2017) 22 June 2017Although Bruce Miller is credited as the creator of this brilliant series, it's very deeply the work of Margaret Atwood, who wrote the original novel, and Elizabeth Moss, who plays the central character June/Offred.

- SFF: A Man of Integrity (Mohammad Rasoulof 2017) 17 June 2017This is a wonderful movie about a man who struggles to maintain his integrity in a world that runs on corruption. Evidently shot in secret by a man who is forbidden to make films, it's not at all shaky to look at, though it does leave one shaken. Iran has some great filmmakers.
