Underrated Movie #358 ~ Widows’ Peak

Christine
When attractive British widow Edwina (Natasha Richardson) moves to a quiet Irish community, the local ladies are immediately suspicious of the sultry outsider, so much so that they spearhead an elaborate investigation to prove she’s up to no good. But that doesn’t stop Edwina from charming Mrs. Counihan’s (Joan Plowright) son, Godfrey (Adrian Dunbar), and fighting with Miss O’Hare (Mia Farrow). Jim Broadbent co-stars in this comedic mystery. (Netflix) My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars.

Underrated Movie #355 ~ Tickled

Tickled
Journalist David Farrier stumbles upon a mysterious tickling competition online. As he delves deeper he comes up against fierce resistance, but that doesn’t stop him getting to the bottom of a story stranger than fiction. (IMDb) I’ve seen quite a few documentaries that expose eccentrics and strange subcultures that I never even knew existed, but “Tickled” is without a doubt one of the most bizarre tales I’ve ever come across. This documentary will make you uncomfortable, but story takes twists you never could have predicted. Like the tagline says on the movie poster… “It’s not what you think.” My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars.

Underrated Movie #354 ~ A Murder in the Park

A Murder in the Park
This arresting documentary chronicles a murder case that made headlines in 1999 when Alstory Simon’s confession led to the release of death-row inmate Anthony Porter, who was convicted of the crime. But his exoneration has been called into question. You know, the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and I loved this documentary because it exposes do-gooders for what they really sometimes are. My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars.

Underrated Movie #349 ~ The Interview

The Interview
Ah, Yes… This is exactly what I’m on the lookout for. The Interview is an Australian police drama in which unemployed, poverty-stricken Eddie Rodney Fleming (Hugo Weaving), after losing his wife and home, is dragged from his apartment by police and subjected to a brutal interrogation. Eventually, it becomes terrifyingly apparent to Eddie that the police consider him a suspect for more than just a stolen car. Detective Sgt. John Steele (Tony Martin) and his assistant, Detective Sgt. Constable Wayne Prior (Aaron Jeffrey), make audiotapes of their efforts to get Fleming to confess. My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars.
