3 New Must See Movies on Netflix Instant Watch

1. Silence of the Lambs:  I’ve seen it close to twenty times and it just keeps getting better.  As someone who has been writing fiction for a year now, I think I am much more able to appreciate what an amazing story this actually is.  The characters are well-developed and intriguing.  Of course Hopkins’ Hannibal Lecter is probably the greatest villain of all time.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Silence_of_the_Lambs_(film)


2.  Strictly Ballroom:  A good 15 years before Dancing with the Stars some Australian filmmakers made this incredibly charming movie/spoof about ballroom dancing competitions in Australia.  Again, an amazingly well-crafted story.  It’s funny and surprisingly poignant and inspirational.  The dancing is phenomenal.  If you don’t like this movie you are not my friend.



3.  The Grifters: John Cusack plays a con-artist who just about lost his life when a scam fell through.  His mother, played by Anjelica Huston, is also a con-artist and is now trying to convince her son to leave “the life”.  You won’t believe the orgy of back-stabbing, deceit, and intrigue this film offers up.  The darkness of this story will not surprise those familiar with the writings of Jim Thompson (The Killer Inside Me, The Getaway, Pop. 1280).
