DON’T MISS: The Best Documentaries on Netflix – 2016 Guide
Release Year: 2012
Director: Justin Schwarz
“Simple, dialogue driven, performance driven stories about quirky families who end up in a kind of crazy crisis, they all re-connect while trying to deal with the situation they’re in. Been done a hundred times before, right? A few of these movies actually succeed in telling this kind of story though, and are fairly good. Little Miss Sunshine comes to mind. This film isn’t as good as that one, but nevertheless it’s still a good offering within that kind of genre.”
Release Year: 2014
Written by Jon Stewart (Based on the book They Came For Me by Maziar Bahari and Aimee Malloy)
Directed by Jon Stewart
Starring Gael Garcia Bernal, Kim Bodnia
“Brilliant! A great show of force by the Jon Stewart in his 1st direction of a major motion picture! The actors were wonderful and the plot and script was complex and a story that needs to be told that the Iranian/Persian people are fighting back within the country against the government. Mr. Bahari’s story was one of many & I am thoroughly happy & impressed the Jon Stewart decided to bring attention the Persian peoples fight for democracy in his first film! Highly recommend especially for the uneducated because the mainstream media surely won’t expose you to stories such as this in the country Iran.”
Release Year: 1974
Directed by Roman Polanski
Starring Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway, John Huston
With a suspicious femme fatale bankrolling his snooping, private eye J.J. Gittes uncovers intricate dirty dealings in the Los Angeles waterworks and gets his nose slashed for his trouble in director Roman Polanski’s complex neonoir classic.
Nicholson saunters though a 1930’s LA with confidence, until he pulls the wrong thread and find himself in the middle of a messy unraveling. Although just as entwined, Dunaway proceeds with caution and finds herself torn between the lies and the truths surrounding her life. Together, the pair light up the screen with coy smiles and excellent senses of style, timing, and tone. The story was basic but kept my attention, much like HBO’s “True Detective”- you witness the lengths a snoop will go to solve a case while taking in glances at his own personality. This film is smart, slick, and suspenseful. Highly recommended.
Release Year: 1997
Directed by Gus Van Sant
Starring Matt Damon, Robin Williams, Ben Affleck, Stellan Skarsgard, Minnie Driver
