I don't use my aunt's Netflix account very often, but I was troubleshooting an issue on my grandma's computer today and the movie I happened to test with was Kumaré. I was so fascinated by it that I watched the rest when I got home.

Oh, weird. John Dies at the End got a film adaptation, which is pretty much as good as you could hope for a film adaptation of John Dies at the End with not quite enough budget. Alien world? That's going to happen in a cave. Nice little distraction, and it's on Netflix now. Obviously about ten times better while stoned, but that should go without saying.

The House I Live In is a documentary on the drug war. It's on netflix instant watch right now and it's well worth the watch. It'll probably depress the shit out of you, but again, it's worth it.

I can't figure out from a glance at the IMDB listing about how much of the documentary is devoted to the Mexican Drug War(s).

Quote from: IMDB Plot Blurb
From the dealer to the narcotics officer, the inmate to the federal judge, a penetrating look inside America's criminal justice system, revealing the profound human rights implications of U.S. drug policy.

What how?

Its about the American drug war, so none? About fifteen seconds where he explains that most normal Americans believe that the drug war is fought in different countries. The movie is about how the drug war and laws surrounding drugs in AMERICA are designed to put poor, mostly minority, people into prison for a long long time. Some of the best interviews are from Federal judges and prison guards who went into their respective fields with all the best intentions and are now disenfranchised with it to the point that... well that they'd be in a Documentary about the drug war.

Joxam, America is a continent and not just the USA./smugprick

I read the "Penetrating look" part as being the third member of a series of features. I just can't imagine someone making a documentary about how fucked up drug policy is and its human rights implications without at least mentioning the clusterfuck that's going on in Latin America as a side-effect of crazy US policies.

But how SNAFU the US justice system is just in terms of recreational drug laws is probably enough for a documentary, I should have been able to suss it out.

Mary & Max - Official Trailer

By the same guy as Harvie Krumpet. Looks really good. I'll have to try and get a copy somewhere.

It's been on Netflix in the US since the paleolithic era.  Not sure about you guys.

Netflix in Canada is trapped in the Paleolithic era.

Finally got around to watching The General (Buster Keaton). It's of course quite dated, but as good as advertised!

Oblivion (the movie) was waaaay better than I was expecting. I'd heard it was crappy. It was quite good.

There's a completely random, unnecessary subplot thrown into the second half, and I feel like the entire plot could have been shaved down and tightened up quite a bit, but it wasn't that bad. Really, the designs, the awesome visuals, the soundwork, and particularly the music made up for the bleh finale.

Worth a watch.

Moonrise Kingdom: well, I can still honestly say I have never seen a bad Wes Anderson movie.  I am glad he is out there making movies.

Blackfish is available on Netflix instant now.  More people watching it is required for SeaWorld to burn to the ground.
