Hologram for the king (2016)

Quite decent and intriguing and I had no idea where the story was going to go. Funny in places. Definitely had that Cloud Atlas vibe about it in places when we hear Tom Hanks read out his emails in the voice over.
A bit like Lost in Translation; alienation in another culture. But this film is not quite as good as that. Can feel a bit slow.
It is well made however and not too long. Nothing hugely dramatic happens but this seems to be quite a realistic story of an American IT professional temporarily working in Saudi Arabia with some fantasy liberties thrown in.

7/10

Netflix ratings are all over the place it seems. This gets 3 out of 5 along with James Cameron's excellent The Abyss (!!!) whilst Now you see me 2 tripe gets 5/5. Imbecilic system.
