Lust Stories (IMDB; Netflix) (Indian drama/comedy) — four shorts depicting relationships in the modern Indian society; superb all around (storylines, directing, acting)
Matkub (IMDB; Netflix) (Israeli comedy) — two low-level crooks survive an explosion and decide to turn their lives around; really funny with a lot of heart
The Man in the Wall (IMDB; Netflix) (Israeli drama) — a young woman’s husband doesn’t come home after walking the dog; excellent acting and camera work
I Am Not an Easy Man (IMDB; Netflix) (French comedy) — a modern world, where a pair of queens is worth more than a pair of kings; attention to detail makes this movie a powerful social satire
Set It Up (IMDB; Netflix) (American rom-com) — yes, it’s a rom-com, but it’s truly delightful
Big Eyes (IMDB; Netflix) (American biopic) — the interesting life story of painter Margaret Keane; directed by Tim Burton, starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz
Add “Ali’s Wedding” in the list as well. A delightful movie.
Cool! Never heard of any of these. I watch about 2 movies in any given year and they are usually star wars or marvel superhero related these days. I will save this list for the future!
