I suspect @luka may also take issue with "actionable" which is admittedly more established than impactful.

Huh, what do you know? No little red underline.

Need to watch it again, but it's one of the best looking films I've ever seen. That shot of him on the beach after they take Aqaba is stunning.

The way it looks and sounds is what really did it for me. I wasn't so impressed by the story and acting, but those shots of the desert, that sweeping score...

There's that brilliant bit where he's walking along the top of the train with everyone chanting his name and you see his shadow strutting across the sand with this rippling, dreamlike soundtrack.

Someone mentioned the film Evilenko which is a dramatisation of the life of Russian serial killer Chikotilo, today we watched another one called Citizen X which, apart from the bizarre setting which makes 80s and 90s Russia look like a medieval country peopled by headscarf wearing peasants, is a very good film. Great performances from Donald Sunderland and the main guy, plus Max Von Sydow as a psychologist and the dad from Billions as the psychopath himself. Worth checking.

Saw MVS in Three Days of the Condor last few weeks

He had a sort of Burroughs hombres invisible groove going on

Well worth a watch if, like my wife, you enjoy a bit of perky peak-era Robert Redford too
