If you've never seen the 1999 American Movie documentary, you really need to. It's an extraordinary doc about 2 guys in Wisconsin (Milwaukee?) who set out to make a low-budget horror despite all odds.
What's so fascinating about this is how hard this guy works yet seems to get nowhere. He's a smart and knowledgable guy but his drinking and shortsightedness (like hiring his friends instead of experienced crew members) get in his way constantly, as he tries to make the ultimate American Movie.
This David Lynch film is a brilliantly edited and crafted mystery story about a jilted lover and a romance gone bad. The incredible attention to detail in the screenplay makes this a must-watch for me. Everything in the first 2/3 correlates to something in the last 1/3 of the film.
I could be wrong, but it seems as if the way we use to watch television has drastically changed since the invention of Netflix. Before Netflix, there wasn't many options, you paid for a cable provider and that was that. Now there Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and more! It introduced the new habit of binge watching too!
In 2 words: cinematic and poignant. Logline: Allied soldiers from Belgium, the British Empire and France are surrounded by the German Army, and evacuated during a fierce battle in World War II (courtesy of IMDB).
