“Buck.” It’s a documentary about the real life horse whisperer.
I personally love nearly everything about Netflix. I recently watched the Oscar-nominated documentary called “The Square.” It is very disturbing, but very, very good and important to watch. It was released in 2013 and is about the ongoing Egyptian revolution.
“The Mind of a Chef” is a sublime video counterpart to the groundbreaking Lucky Peach magazine. Also, “Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry” is a must see for artists and cultural dissidents. “Haute Cuisine” was superbly acted and luscious in its foodie details. “Melancholia,” for the Peter Greenaway-style masochistic tragic-romantic in you. Oh, and I’ve just started the “Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries” series, and so far it’s a nice fix for us Agatha Christie and Monk fans.
“The Kids Are All Right.”

The documentary “Happy” and “Half the Sky.”
“Leaves of Grass” with Edward Norton. Surprisingly good festival film that never got widely released.
