    From Russia with Love

    ★★★★

    Lesbian subtext up the wazoo! Number 3 is iconic. That first scene when she vets the Russian Bond girl, it's very obvious. Not even subtext I guess.

    God's Own Country

    ★★★★½

    A rugged young Englishman and a gentle Romanian migrant worker find intimacy atop the lonesome hills of Northern Yorkshire in “God’s Own Country,” Francis Lee’s quietly remarkable debut feature. Embittered by his isolated existence, Johnny (Josh O’Connor) softens upon meeting Gheorghe (Alec Secareanu), who has much to teach him, and not just how to delicately breathe life into a newborn lamb. Such explicit scenes of daily farm life give the film documentary-like potency, elevating it far beyond conventional romantic drama — with no "I can't quit you" moment to speak of.
