4 very good movies that unfairly failed to see on Netflix and other streaming platforms this weekend

At Espinof we have already become a tradition to go through the catalogs of the different streaming companies to recommend several movies every weekend. This time I have selected 4 very good titles that failed unfairly that you can recover on Netflix and other platforms.

In case you are not interested in any of them or that you have simply already seen all of them, I remind you that we also have lists of amazing horror movies available for streaming, also powerful erotic feature films, very funny films, epic proposals that deserve a lot worth it, great space science fiction cinema or first class historical cinema. Without further ado, let’s go with today’s picks:

‘The bread of war’ (‘The Breadwinner’)


Direction: Nora Twomey. Cast (vocals): Saara Chaudry, Soma Bhatia, Ali Badshah, Noorin Gulamgaus, Kane Mahon, Laara Sadiq, Shaista Lati, Kanza Feris, Kawa Ada, Ali Kazmi

Cartoon Saloon is the studio behind highly acclaimed animated films like ‘The Secret Book of Kells’, ‘Song of the Sea’ or ‘Wolfwalkers’, but personally I think ‘The bread of war’ It is the best they have given us so far, or at least the one that best balances the visual part with the narrative. In it, she is explored as a girl during the period of Taliban control in Afghanistan between 1996 and 2001, reflecting with great success both the harsh reality of the moment and the hope that marks the personality of her protagonist.

‘Master and Commander’

Direction: Peter Weier. Distribution: Russell Crowe, Paul Bettany, James D’Arcy, Max Pirkis, Lee Ingleby, Robert Pugh, David Threlfall, Edward Woodall, Ian Mercer, Billy Boyd, Joseph Morgan, Richard McCabe, Chris Larkin

I have to confess that I myself did not connect too much with it during its time in theaters, but my esteem for it grew quite a bit after a recent review. I say this for those to whom the same thing might happen to them, because this maritime adventure offers a very competent portrait of life on board a ship, but where it really shines is in the curious friendship that arises between the characters played by Russell Crowe and Paul Bettany, to the point where it’s a shame they never played them again. By the way, a prequel was recently launched.

‘Silence’ (‘Silence’)

Silence

Direction: Martin Scorsese. Distribution: Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Liam Neeson, Ciarán Hinds, Issei Ogata, Tadanobu Asano, Shinya Tsukamoto, Ryo Kase, SABU, Nana Komatsu, Yôsuke Kubozuka, Yoshi Oida, Ten Miyazawa

Martin Scorsese He has been interested in religious themes on several occasions throughout his career and here he surprised us with a work that combines the historical epic with a very human story about the repression suffered by Christianity in Japan. Perhaps he lacks a little more human warmth in his portrayal of his characters, but the great work of his cast more than makes up for it.

‘The Way Back’

The WayBack

Direction: Gavin O’Connor. Distribution: Ben Affleck, Janina Gavankar, Al Madrigal, Sal Velez Jr., Michaela Watkins, Brandon Wilson, Hayes MacArthur, Melvin Gregg, Rachael Carpani, Will Ropp, Jay Abdo, TK Carter, Lukas Gage

A powerful drama that uses the sports movie formula – its director is an absolute gem within that subgenre – to explore the multiple personal problems that plague the life of the coach played by a magnificent Ben Affleck. The bitterness that dominates the story during most of the footage is surprising, but the truth is that it fits very well in its portrait of the constant struggle of its protagonist to avoid self-destruction intimately linked to her alcoholism.
