New to Netflix UK - 21/01/13

Some new and noteworthy titles to the Netflix UK catalogue.

A Few Good Men (1992) - Military courtroom drama where a young lawyer defending two murderers discovers that the case may extend to the top of the command chain. It's one of the better examples of the this-case-is-bigger-than-we-thought type of films with Tom Cruise on top form as the young lawyer.

Exit Through the Gift Shop (2010) - The Banksy documentary by Banksy that may or may not be real. A divisive film but worth the watch if you have any interest in the notorious graffiti artist.

Scent of a Woman (1992) - A blind ex-army officer takes his new carer to New York for one last shot at having a good time before committing suicide. The film is a little too smug for it's own good at times but it's still highly watchable thanks to Mr Pacino giving one of his best roles in his career.

The Experiment (2010) - American remake of the German film based on the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment, where normal men role-play as prisoners and guards and things spiral out of control. It has Adrian Brody in it but otherwise you may be better off tracking down the original.

The Karate Kid III (1989) - An old rival returns to face the Karate Kid and Mr Miyagi. The quality falls pretty dramatically with every sequel however for some reason people still claim the third to be a good movie.

Sketches of Frank Gehry (2005) - The late Sidney Pollack documents the life and work of one of his best friends, the architect Frank Gehry. It's an affectionate documentary and an insightful look at the man who is considered as one of the greatest architects of the modern world.
