1. The Fall
Very pretty to look at, super imaginative, and will probably make you cry (in a good way). Also, I want to build a shrine dedicated to Lee Pace’s eyebrows. Or maybe just Lee Pace in general.
2. I Am Love
It has everything you could want in a movie: a scandalous love story, family drama, and a beautiful setting. Plus, I love Tilda Swinton and her wardrobe in this is FABULOUS. This is in Italian, so if you don’t know Italian and are too lazy to read subtitles, then whatever.
Not the feel-good movie of the century, but boy is it a visual stunner. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but it offers an excellent commentary on how depression and anxiety manifests itself differently in different people.
(I was so impressed that I decided to watch Lars Von Trier’s other movie, Antichrist. HOL-Y SHIT WHAT DID I JUST WATCH??? I was so disturbed by this movie that I felt the need to drink a tall glass of happiness and sunshine afterwards. I’m not easily phased by much, but there were some scenes that I kind of wish I could unsee. BUT if anyone sees this and wants to discuss, pleeeease holler at me).
4. Louis C.K.: Hilarious
COMIC RELIEF because everything I watch is depressing as shit. This is aptly named. If you like to laugh, watch it.
5. Pearl Jam Twenty
I love documentaries like this because they make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Plus, I’ve always been obsessed with the whole 90’s grunge thing. Even if you’re not a Pearl Jam fan, I highly recommend because who doesn’t love it when smart, talented people find success without compromise?
Here’s my other post on Netflix stuffz. Not sure if all of these are still available for instant streaming, though.
