Bruno Ganz is amazing in Downfall.

I watched the first episode of, "Age of Samurai: The Battle for Japan" on Netflix last night. A not-too-terrible docu-drama about the Sengoku Period in Japan. I had not seen anything about it prior to going to Netflix last pm, so it hit me as a real surprise. I couldn't find a series trailer to post but it wasn't half-bad. And it made me want to play Shogun 2 all over again.  #:-)

^That popped up in my feed too, looks pretty good.

Behind Her Eyes is also very good and watchable with wives/girlfriends/pets/significant others.

I watched The Vast of Night on Amazon Prime a few days ago.  It takes place in a small town in New Mexico in the 50s.  Two high school kids, one who works at the radio station and one who runs the telephone switchboard, stumble across a weird signal and decide to investigate.  If you like shows and films about the paranormal like the Super 8, or the X-Files or The Twilight Zone, you should enjoy this one.

It's low budget but the acting is top notch and the director did a fantastic job in bringing the town to life.  The attention to detail is fantastic and some of the camerawork is amazing.  There's one long tracking shot that basically runs through the entire town.  I have no idea how they filmed that but it was pretty cool to see.

The story is a slow burn and the payoff could have been better but if you're in the mood for some old timey nostalgia mixed in with a bit of a sci-fi/horror/mystery vibe, it's a good choice.
