Recent Netflix Discoveries
I find cults soothing
- •The Sacrament: found footage horror/thriller by Ti West, with the conceit being these guys are VICE reporters, lol. It's like updated Jim Jones but very atmospheric.
- •Don Hertzfeldt's "It's Such a Beautiful Day": everything and nothing. Like that Slaughterhouse Five quote about heave, but by the guy who made that "Rejected" viral video. ("My spoon is too big!")
- •It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: the nuances of bird law are examined in this deeply moving portrayal of a giant dumb stupid flightless bird.
- •Sound of my Voice: Brit Marling is a cult leader from the future maybe?
- •Upstream Color: Pig farmers and mind control and flowers.
- •You're Next: a bunch of indie actors you are probably friends with in the Twitter sense of the word get picked off one by one and it's SO GOOD.
