Netflix Instant: Movie & TV Picks - Genre Edition!

 This has to be one of my favorite weeks for Netflix Instant releases that include an old favorite and two efforts by acclaimed directors. Check them out below!

I love, love, love this movie. Saw back in Fantastic Fest 2012 and its imagery has burned it self into my brain. It deals with a sound engineer from England taking a job with an eccentric Italian Giallo director. The violent subject matter surrounding the fictional movie starts to take a toll on him and things start becoming a little surreal. You can see my review from the festival here

Don't know anything about this except that director Johnnie To is a badass director according to my other movie friends and that this is one of his better efforts. It deals with a drug dealer turned informant to the police and the cat-and-mouse game they play. Is the drug dealer being truthful? Or merely wasting the police's time to his own benefit?

Director Ben Wheatley is one of my favorites working today. This is one of his "comedies," which if you're familiar with his work is using the term very lightly. The movie deals with a newlywed couple in their honeymoon. The wife ends up finding out that her new husband is a killer, and that she might be into that notion.
