Top 10 Netflix gems you might not have seen…

In the modern world of streaming, Netflix’s suggestions can make it difficult to track down movies that take you out of your comfort zone, and unfortunately means that a lot of really good films can go relatively unseen. Cinema Perspective counts down gems that might have passed you by…
1. Coherence
Coherence-Movie
A mind-bendingly good psychological horror from director James Ward Byrkit.
My review…
2. Short Term 12

Brie Larson has been impressing from supporting roles for some time and is tipped to get the recognition she deserves in Room which comes out in the UK on 15th January 2016. In Short Term 12, she plays a social worker with troubles of her own.
3. In Order of Disappearance

Starring the great Stellan Skarsgaard, In Order of Disappearance directed by Hans Petter Moland is a dramatic yet hilarious watch that combines genres in a satisfying revenge flick.
My review and my interview with the director…
4. Half Nelson

Ryan Gosling received an Oscar nomination for his complicated role in Half Nelson, playing the part of a drug addicted school teacher. This makes the list not for being unseen as such but perhaps forgotten.
5. Creep

Comedy writer, director and actor Mark Duplass takes a horror influenced detour, teaming up with director Patrick Brice for Creep, which more than lives up to its name.
6. Young Adult

Charlize Theron is excellent in Young Adult, a film which explores what happens to the popular high school ice queen when life doesn’t quite turn out as planned. Jason Reitman directs.
7. Mighty Aphrodite

Netflix has a great abundance of Woody Allen films, including Mighty Aphrodite in which he stars alongside Mira Sorvino and Helena Bonham Carter and is at his wittiest.
8. All this Mayhem

As well as films, television and stand-up, Netflix gives a platform to a huge selection of documentaries. All this Mayhem follows the harrowing story of Australian skateboarding brothers Tas and Ben Pappas and is a must-see for anyone who has an interest in extreme sport.
9. uwantme2killhim?

British rising star Jamie Blackley is going from strength to strength, and this is partly down to uwantme2killhim? which featured at Edinburgh Film Festival back in 2013 and is based on a shocking true story.
10. Hyena

Hyena was met with a mixed critical reception but for fans of gritty British crime films, it is well worth looking out. It tackles police corruption in London’s criminal underworld and stars the brilliant Stephen Graham.
