Good Movies I’ve Seen Recently

By on July 15, 2022

Here are the movies I’ve watched and loved lately.

Note that some of these films are not on Netflix. You’ll have to find them on Amazon Prime Video or one of the many free movie sites (reach out if you need some links).

A Hero (2021)

Rahim is in prison because of a debt he was unable to repay. During a two-day leave, he tries to convince his creditor to withdraw his complaint against the payment of part of the sum. But things don’t go as planned.

Good Luck to You, Leo Grande (2022)

Nancy Stokes, a 55-year-old widow, is yearning for some adventure, human connection, and some sex–some good sex.

Love After Love (2020)

The film tells the story of a young girl who travels from Shanghai to Hong Kong in pursuit of education, but ends up working for her aunt seducing rich and powerful men.

One for the Road (2021)

Boss, a high end club owner living in New York, who receives a call from his friend in Thailand, Aood, revealing he is in the last stages of terminal cancer.

Also Seen Recently (Honorable Mention)

These are some of the other movies I’ve seen recently that are worth a watch. While not quite as good as the films above, they still are well worth your viewing time. Consider these honorable mentions.

Power of the Dog (2021)

Charismatic rancher Phil Burbank inspires fear and awe in those around him. When his brother brings home a new wife and her son, Phil torments them until he finds himself exposed to the possibility of love.

Come Sunday (2018)

Evangelist Carlton Pearson is ostracized by his church for preaching that there is no Hell.

The Darjeeling Limited (2007)

A year after their father’s funeral, three brothers travel across India by train in an attempt to bond with each other.

Pedestrian

Films I’ve seen that were average. But I list them here to be a completist. Most aren’t bad. They just don’t stick with you the way that the above films do.
