So, as we see at the start of 2021, these are our top 3 movies on Netflix US right now.
The Truman Show
What does a terrific film look like? In our opinion, The Truman Show is that movie. It’s about Truman (Jim Carrey), an insurance salesman who is oblivious that his entire life is a TV show and his family members are mere actors. As he starts noticing things and uncovers the truth, he decides to escape. A perfect bit of sci-fi that essentially predicts the coming of social media and reality TV.
This story of a marriage coming apart isn’t as devastating to see as you might think. Noah Baumbach shows his screenwriting genius once again. While every single piece of acting from leading Driver and Johansson and all the supporting actors is impeccable. It’s about a stage director and his actor wife struggle through a grueling divorce that pushes them to their personal and creative extremes.
Okja is an incredible movie that proves Netflix does know what it’s doing when it comes to producing films. Directed by Bong Joon-ho, the film is about a young girl who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multinational company from kidnapping her best friend- a fascinating beast named Okja. This film has excellent production, acting and covers the rampant corruptness in many of our culturally accepted norms.
