Netflix Instant: Movie & TV Picks

I'm sick so I can't think of a clever intro, but I can definitely think of a few good movies on Netflix!

BROTHERS BLOOM director Rian Johnson is mostly known for directing some of the most memorable episodes of BREAKING BAD. But he's done a couple of really good movies with this one and BRICK which we've talked about here before. This one deals with brothers played by Adrien Brody and Mark Ruffalo who are expert con men. They decided to do One Last Job and if you've seen movies, you know how well that goes. 

This was a festival movie last year. I'm only recommending the movie because I find it to be an interesting mess. The movie itself is insanely dark with our protagonist being accused of the brutal murder of his girlfriend. He then starts growing horns that make everyone around him start telling the truth. The movie works soooooo well in the first two thirds of the movie and then it becomes a different movie altogether making it very uneven but it's also kind of cool to see Daniel Radcliffe acting so crazy.

I haven't seen this movie or the original. This appears to be a re-quel (remake/sequel) of it taking place 65 years after the original. The big deal here is that director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon also directed recent Sundance darling ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL, so it'll be cool to another of one his works here.
