I never know what's playing in the theatres, or which new, recently released onto dvd/netflix/mp3/whatever movies are even worth watching, so late at night, when I'm desperate for something to watch, I troll Netflix. I know I'm not the only one.
The other night, when I was having trouble sleeping, I scoured Netflix for the usual 30 frustrating minutes before finding 1991 film, Barton Fink. Directed by the Coen brothers, and starring John Turturro, John Goodman, and Judy Davis, I knew it had to be a good one.
This is a great movie to watch alone, with a friend, with a lover, with your brother, but maybe not your mother. It's hilarious, but there is some blood and smut, so maybe tell your mom to watch it by herself.
