We all have Netflix. We all like movies. Here are four underrated, underappreciated, and down right ignored movies that you should definitely give a watch on Netflix.

Super Dark Times

Super Dark Times (2015) has been gaining popularity among independent film fans. The movie follows a pair of teenage best friends entangled in the aftermath of a gruesome accident. Director Kevin Phillip’s film features some of the most realistic teenage dialogue ever and a crazy plot twist.

Burn After Reading

From the Coen brothers (directors of Fargo, The Big Lebowski, and No Country for Old Men), Burn After Reading (2008) features witty performances from Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Frances McDormand, John Malkovich, and Tilda Swinton. Burn After Reading weaves a hilariously dark story as the contents of a pointless CIA disc fall into the wrong hands leaving everyone involved hopelessly confused.

In Bruges

A fresh take on the gangster genre, Martin McDonagh’s film is funny and dark. In Bruges (2008) follows a dysfunctional gang of hitmen traipsing around the fairytale city of Bruges in Belgium. Hysterical fast dialogue, great performances from Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, and constant Bruges jokes, make In Bruges an entertaining watch.

Ex Machina

Ex Machina is a tremendous movie. Alex Garland’s directorial debut is a nearly two hour mind bending trip exploring a complicated relationship between human and artificial intelligence. The film is beautifully shot showcasing some very sharp and elegant cinematography. Amazing performances from Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, and a breakout performance from Alicia Vikander further elevate this incredible movie.
