Netflix & Chill: 4 Films to Get You Through the Weekend

For those who just want to stay in

The pollution levels are through the roof in the past few days, so if you're planning to stay in this weekend, here are four films to put on your Netflix queue.

 

 

1. The Nice Guys

 

 

Is there anything that some Ryan Gosling won’t improve? Paired up with Russell Crowe, he saunters through 1970s Los Angeles as a porn star’s murder leads the detectives to the typically opaque conspiracy. If there’s anything new, it’s the breezy joy of the film’s excessive violence and the unexpected chemistry of the two.

 

2. A Hologram For The King

 

 

Tom Hanks stars in the adaptation of Dave Eggers’ Kafkaesque account of a disoriented businessman in Saudi Arabia. In the hands of writer-director Tom Tykwer, it becomes a visual feast of mideastern architecture. If Hanks solves his crisis with a paint-by-numbers romance, it’s still fun to watch.

 

3. April And The Extraordinary World

 

 

Frightful and terribly timely, this drama set against the end of World War I follows a monstrous coming of age. As a deeply manipulative and unhinged child, Prescott (Tom Sweet) reveals the unchecked personality that will one day become a tyrant. Like a documentary for an awful alternative history, it bears a warning we must heed.

 

4. I Am Not A Serial Killer

 

 

Max Records (Where the Wild Things Are) has grown up and now fights the urges alluded to in the title. Someone else in his sleepy Midwestern town does not. What follows is a surprisingly upbeat amble through the more twisted parts of the human psyche, uplifted by a stellar performance from Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future).
