Painkiller, The Last Voyage of the Demeter, Jules

Movie 1: Painkiller

This is a very good six part Netflix series about the opioid epidemic and the pharmaceutical company and doctors responsible for it. Based on true events, this docudrama has a frantic urgency about it. The acting, especially Uzo Aduba, is very good.


Movie 2: The Last Voyage of the Demeter

As far as Dracula movies go, this one is ok. Based on the seventh chapter of Bram Stoker’s book Dracula, dangerous cargo sails between Romania and London. The movie has a moody, dark, gothic feel. Good acting and eerie cinematography.


Movie 3: Jules

This is a charming movie. Anyone who has seen ET will know the premise. Three senior citizens befriend an extraterrestrial whose spaceship lands in one of their backyards. The real life topics of aging, dementia, loneliness are poignantly and beautifully portrayed. Try not to miss this gem.

    Thanks, as always, for telling us which movies are worth it
