New August Movies To Catch Up After Your Holidays
August was a month of a wacky sequel of Suicide Squad and a Netflix made Beckett, which opened the comeback of the 74th Locarno Film Festival at the Piazza Grande. If you haven't seen them, you belong to a majority of those who prefer summer getaways with places where a cinema theatre is nothing more than an unnecessary building blocking a seafront view.
