Albina Fazylova

Payback (1997) (TV)

One night a restaurant owner calls the police after she sees a suspicious man waiting in his car and witnesses a crime committed by the police.

Standard , but well made TV thriller, additionally interesting for teaming up Mary Tyler Moore and Ed Asner again.

Hunger (2008)

Irish Republican Bobby Sands leads the inmates of a Northern Irish prison in a hunger strike.

Sparse and intense drama emphasizing the existential implications more than the political.

Walk the Line (2005)

A chronicle of country music legend Johnny Cash's life, from his early days on an Arkansas cotton farm to his rise to fame with Sun Records in Memphis, where he recorded alongside Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins.

Exemplary Hollywood biopic with some great performances and some tasteful use of Johnny Cash's songs.

Still agree with my original assessment.
