Best Netflix Movies I saw last week:
“Das Boot: Director’s Cut” — “Troy” director Wolfgang Peterson created this film about one U-Boat crew in WWII. It is recognized as one of the best German films of all time, and received six Oscar nominations. It’s basically “Fury,” but with underwater Germans.
“Metropolis: Restored” — If you can handle long silent films, this is a must-watch. German-made “Metropolis” is the first feature-length sci-fi film ever made. It takes place in a futuristic city where an android is used to drive the people to revolution. The golden android was the basis for C-3PO.
“Killing Them Softly” — Produced by the same studio as “12 Years a Slave” and starring Brad Pitt, this film is a simple crime thriller that assesses the moral troubles faced by crime lords and hitmen.
