Anyone got any recommendations for any good films, series, documentaries, etc. you've seen on Netflix or normal TV?
Seeing as we're still getting loads of rain and crappy cold weather here, I want to snuggle in and watch something good!
The devil and father amorth: a documentary about demonic posession.

There are others I can think of, but I don't know how different Netflix is in your area than here in the states.

Just watched it. The bishop of LA was a bit of a shock to me, with the stuff he was saying, he actually said the devil was good. Why on earth did they make him a bishop if he doesn't even believe the basics?

I started watching Black Sails when it first came out in the UK but kind of stopped watching it because I was too knackered in the evenings to watch anything! And never went back to it. Cheers for reminding me because it was pretty good. Will have to check out Vikings too. I remember seeing trailers for it and it did look right up my street.

Dog Soldiers was great. Seen it a couple of times. Definitely underrated.

I love a good horror or action movie but my favourite film of all time is a classic (1953) British comedy called Genevieve. This is based around the London to Brighton vintage car run & features a great music score by Larry Adler.
Genevieve is a 1904 12hp Darracq & it still takes part in the Brighton run.

Another great British film is the One that got away starring Hardy Kruger. Made in 1957 it is based on the biography of the same name about WW2 german pilot Franz Von Werra, the only German prisoner of war to escape allied imprisonment & return to Germany & the war. Von Werra later died in action.

The film is based upon what we know of Von Werra's capture, interrogation & time in various British POW camps & his numerous escapes. At one point he talked his way onto an RAF base & then not only got access to a restricted area, but also managed to get into the cockpit of a development & thus top secret Spitfire. Van Werra was an amazing person & the film shows him as the hero.

The third film I really rate highly is Christiane F, this is the biography of christiane felscherinow, who at 12 years old lived in Hamburg & was a big David Bowie fan. The film thus features Davids music. By 14 she was a heroin addicted prostitute. The film is hard to find dubbed in English on DVD, but I have the old Video version & it is a film that every should watch.

Christiane F is based upon Christian's autobiography Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo (We Children of Bahnhof Zoo.) Bahnhof Zoo being Berlins railway station Bahnhof Berlin Zoologischer Garten where 14 year old Christiane worked as a proustite with other young boys & girls. This is a bleak film, but very watchable.

I'll check out the other ones, but when you mentioned Christina F, I sort of got goosebumps. My sister had the book so I read it as a young teenager. The film was so good. Hard-hitting, and so real you actually find yourself questioning whether or not the actors are taking drugs lol. Its one of those films that stays with you long after you've seen it.

I only just got Netflix last month, a couple movies besides the one I posted a few days ago are:

Triple frontier
Hurricane heist

A documentary:

Los Tigres Del Norte at folsom prison- Spanish language documentary about a legendary band famous for its Mexican music and their 2018 performance at folsom prison on the anniversary of the day Johnny Cash did the same thing in the 60's. The documentary has interviews with inmates as well. It is subtitled, if you're curious.

Series:
