Eye in the Sky (2015) (Amazon Prime)

Not because it is Alan Rickman's last movie (and he puts in a wonderful performance, as does Helen Mirren, as does the whole cast), Eye in the Sky is riveting as well as maddening. It's riveting because the director knows how to turn the screws on the audience. It's maddening because it's not so much arguments on the issue presented, but rather, portraits of the shortcomings of politicians, although the military perhaps comes out a bit cleaner than might be the reality. It's a shame it's just HD and not 4K and it would be better on an 85" screen than on a 75" screen, but you will definitely enjoy watching it.
