Here’s some movies available right now on the instant queue that you shouldn’t miss. Some people never know what to watch, and I’ve seen probably 4x as many movies as you.
- Bad Boys (1983) - Forget the Will Smith crap. Sean Penn stuck in prison along with his worst enemy, the drama unfolds.
- The Stoning of Soroya M. - The absurdities of living in an impoverished Muslim town are on display as a beautiful woman is accused of adultery by her husband who wants her gone. Based on a true story.
- The Machinist - Christian Bale at his best playing a man who hasn’t slept for over a year. The physical and mental breakdown of the main character is fascinating.
- The Secret in Their Eyes - Ricardo Darin stars as a retired investigator who decides to write a book about a murder that hasn’t been solved. Some of the best acting and writing you will ever see.
- A Prophet - Makes the Shawshank Redemption look a little timid. Excellent prison movie about a man changing his ways to deal with prison life.
- 4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days - You will be amazed at how the action plays out without any cuts for several minutes. Brilliant acting and perfect writing.
- Irreversible - There’s parts of this movie that will make you want to look away, but your eyes will stay glued to the screen. The horror of rape and the necessity of revenge.
Some repeats for people that haven’t caught on. I’ll make another post soon.
