Confidence. Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster, and Cybill Shepherd star on this Martin Scorsese crime thriller a couple of veteran with psychological health issues who works an evening job, driving a taxi round New York City. De Niro plays Travis Bickle, a Vietnam warfare vet who moonlights as a cap driver to cope with his insomnia. During an extended shift, he contemplates assassinating a politician to assist out the woman he is fallen in love with (Shepherd) and killing a pimp after befriending an underage prostitute (Foster). It is a wild trip, filled with darkly comedic moments, and an even more harrowing looks on the penalties of warfare.

Baz Luhrmann’s star-studded 2013 adaptation is visually beautiful – it won Oscars for both production and costume design – but maybe lacks the depth of the novel, which carefully skewered the excesses of The Jazz Age years earlier than it all got here crashing down. Leonardo di Caprio plays the titular millionaire, with Carey Mulligan and Joel Edgerton rounding out the awkward love triangle that types the core of the plot, and Tobey Maguire in full blank canvas mode as narrator Nick Carraway. Watch it on an enormous display screen, with a mojito.

Bill Murray is generally regarded as one of the vital beloved actors of all time, and boasts a resume most performers would be jealous of. Actually certainly one of his finest turns came in 1993’s Groundhog Day, taking part in acerbic weatherman Phil Connors. To call Phil an enormous jerk can be putting it mildly, however destiny has determined to make him relive the identical titular day over and over, until he learns to be a better man. A critical darling, the film was directed by Murray’s outdated Ghostbusters pal Harold Ramis, and is a prime-tier Netflix addition.

Nevertheless it’s also an absolute riot, as Jeff Bridges’ middle-aged stoner The Dude units out to proper a wrong (in a case of mistaken id, two hoodlums dirty” his beloved rug) and ends up sucked headlong right into a kidnapping case involving German nihilists, pornographers, a rich paraplegic, performance artists, a sullen teenage car thief, the police chief of Malibu, possibly hallucinatory cowboys… and bowling.
