Cold War (2018) directed by Pawel Pawlikowski

A romance takes place on both sides of the Iron Curtain during the early days of the Cold War. Shot in a warm sepia monochrome and featuring a prevalence of diverse music, this is one of those rare movies which you can enjoy as a sensory, magical experience while barely contemplating the dark central story.

Red Sparrow (2018) starring Jennifer Lawrence

Francis Lawrence's attempt at modernising the Cold War thriller is a jarring and unpleasant mix of musty old cliches, rape, torture, romance and feminine empowerment. It has its moments as well as some fine performances but it's not particularly enjoyable.
