    I can say without hesitation about five of these are over-rated messes with cult followings.

    But there’s ten that are undeniable classics.

  2. Ray Pride says:

    And despite those messes, it’s a strikingly diverse slate.

  3. Keil Shults says:

    There’s no way The Gods Must Be Crazy came out in 1984.

    Beverly Hills Cop remains my pick for best action comedy. It’s my favorite, anyway.

  5. Keil Shults says:

    Also, I’ve always thought of Blood Simple as a 1985 release, though it’s hard to say. Kind of like Jesus’ Son and London Calling.

What about replacing Mr. Spacey with another actor? Mr. Plummer, perhaps.
“That would theoretically be fantastic,” Mr. Rothman said he responded. “But I have supervised 450 movies over the course of my career. And what you are saying is impossible. There is not enough time.”

“Would I like to see Wormwood in a theater on a big screen? You betcha. I’d be disingenuous to argue otherwise. But we’re all part of, like it or not, an industry, and what Netflix offers is an opportunity to do different kinds of films in different ways. Maybe part of what is being sacrificed is that they no longer go into theaters. If the choice is between not doing it at all and having it not go to theaters, it’s an easy choice to make.”
