Based on the true story of Tommy Wiseau, creator of "The Room," which was voted the worst film in the history of the film industry.
Why watch: The story of The Room is perhaps even stranger than the Tommy Wiseau film itself. Therefore, there is no better director than a great film storyteller, James Franco, who was able to make a great and really funny film based on what happened in reality. Franco not only acted as a director, but also played the role of Waiso himself.

Why watch: Any Sofia Coppola film deserves a book about it. "Fatal Temptation" is one of the director's best works. The film is based on the book and is a remake of Clint Eastwood's 1971 film Deceived. Coppola's version with Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning is truly intriguing and opens up new perspectives on the gender dynamics depicted in the film.
This is a portrait film about the famous but mysterious life of the poet Emily Dickinson.
"We don't know how high
Until we stand up to full height
Then - if we are faithful to the drawing
We reach the stars with our head.
Heroism would become everyday
Which Sagas We Sing About
But we compress the size ourselves
For fear of becoming King. "
These are the masterpieces that Miss Dickinson wrote.
Why watch: Yes, it sounds kind of boring. It seems about the private life of the poetess. "Quiet Passion" is a quiet film without big plot twists and turns. But for fans, Dickinson is a standout movie starring Cynthia Nixon. Director Terrence Davies gives us a deep insight into what a great poet's life could have been like according to his own vision.

One day a new man comes to the house, and the wife of the ghost leaves the house, but the ghost cannot leave the house ....
Why watch: Quite a simple fantasy-drama film directed by David Lowry with Casey Affleck as a ghost. But although it is simple, it is inexpressibly gentle and truly "fantasy".
Jennette grows up in a dysfunctional hippie family who only do what they move from place to place. The father is an alcoholic, and the mother does not care about her children. One day children leave their parents ...
Why watch: Based on Jannette Walls's memoir, The Castle of Glass leaves a very emotional impression. Film director Destin Cretton is again on top, raising the issue of independence and how we run away from our parents' influence or do we accept it. With one exception: in this film, the parents are too eccentric. Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, Naomi Watts show their best work in the new film.

Stories of the Mayrowitz family
The meeting of unfriendly representatives of the Mayrowitz family after one of the exhibitions of the famous member of their clan Harold does not promise to be "a walk in sunny weather". Moreover, it turns into a real nightmare.
Why Watching: The Stories of the Mairowitz Family is unfortunately another great movie buried on Netflix, but worth finding, if only because Adam plays there Sandler. In addition to the excellent cast: Emma Thompson, Dustin Hoffman, Ben Stiller, the film examines the issues of what a person leaves behind in this world. What is its impact on the world. The film also has enough other semantic load, so it can be called metasmantic.
Get me Roger Stone
A documentary about the life and work of Roger Stone, one of the most influential figures in North American politics, a Republican lobbyist, strategist and conspiracy theorist, who advised Richard Nixon and helped Donald Trump build his political career.
Why watch: The video interviews featured in this documentary about Roger Stone may not tell anything new for those familiar with this political figure, but for people who are not even knew about its existence, it will be quite interesting to look at what is happening within the American political system and to find out how President Trump is connected through Stone with ex-US President Richard Nixon.

Blade Runner 2049 - Most Underrated Movie of 2017
The sequel to the 1982 sci-fi movie Blade Runner, the new film follows events further down the line of the future. The replicant hunter accidentally stumbles upon a big secret that can shock the public. This leads him to go in search of Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who went missing 30 years ago.
Why Watching: Although it cost the filmmakers $ 150 million and became the sequel to one of the most outstanding sci-fi movies ever released, Blade Runner 2049 has collected only $ 90 million at the box office.
