The Last Movie You Watched?

"Ronin" (1998). A truly sterling post Cold War action-espionage thriller from John Frankenheimer. I pretty much watch it whenever it pops up (it's free on YouTube these days).

There's a lot going on, so each successive viewing can be a novel experience, so rich is Frankenheimer's direction and detailing. Not to be overlooked is David Mamet's taut script. It's the reason the cast talks the way it does and it's great.
 
"Traffic" (2000). Twenty-one years old, topical, and yet still timely. Just a great multi-threaded tale told by Steven Soderbergh (Best Director Oscar) with an Oscar-winning performance by Benicio Del Toro as an idealistic Mexican narco-cop. Much human drama, and much food for thought, especially as our drug problems have only worsened since the film's debut. Included with Prime.
 

Not a bad film. Made me nostalgic about shooting with my old film Leica.
