Knowing literally zero about Norway's involvement in WWII and the reality of the situation in Narvik, taking only into account what the film puts forth, I enjoyed it well enough. The story was interesting, with intriguing war-time political complications and solid battle scenes sprinkled throughout. It's a decent watch if you want to squeeze one out of your account before Netflix cancels your free lunch, you stinking freeloader.
You People on Netflix is a show that's just alright, not too bad and not quite great. The plot twists are quite abrupt, but not completely unsatisfying, just slightly lacking in grace. The acting is decent, but not remarkable, with room for improvement, it's safe to say. The camera work is fine, nothing too unique, but not the worst in a day. Overall, it's worth a watch, but don't expect too much, just a passable escape for a day.

Slow West is like if Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson, and Jim Jarmusch bore a love child in New Zealand, then raised it in old west Colorado, with the life expectancy of a kiddie film's runtime. (And I mean that in the most complimentary way possible.)

Wow, what a deliciously creepy film first-time director Dan Gillroy has here. Gyllenhaal plays his hand perfectly as a cold obsessive who finds career opportunity in capturing crime footage as fast and as grizzly as possible in order to sell it at the highest price to the local news, a pursuit that eventually leads him to bend the rules of the game - along with everyone around him. A+, would watch again.
