New to Netflix UK - 24/03/14

Not much new, but there's a few lesser-known movies that are worth checking out.

Dead Man Down - Two people with a lust for vengeance form an uneasy alliance in order to achieve their goals. What starts off as a decent thriller soon erupts into a Hollywood-wannabe mess of a movie, however if you can stomach the sudden change in quality it still ends up being a watchable movie.

Breathe In - A family has their relationship and morals tested when they take in a foreign exchange student. It boasts some excellent performances from the key actors, and the film is incredibly well shot, however the emotional impact the film is trying to convey often gets bogged down by a plot that seems far too linear given the events presented to us.

Days of Grace - Three stories about crime and corruption in Mexico city, set during the three football world cups between 2004 and 2012. It's not for the faint of heart, taking a similar stance to gang portrayal as City of God, but the result is a very entertaining crime movie reminding us of the chaos many people have to put up with on a day to day basis.
