The movie is called Challengers for anybody who is confused lol (op did not include the movie title in his original post). I am not sure I would call it a "hidden" gem as it stars one of the biggest actresses in Hollywood.

But perhaps I am more into it than your typical movie goer as for the record I did see Call Me By Your Name when it came out.

The Zone of Interest - 8/10

It's a slice of life look at the family of the main Commandant who ran the Auchwitz concentration camp, and the house they live in which is literally right next to the camp.

Really well done movie, but it's definitely not entertaining. It's almost as if it should be a documentary or educational film that schools should show in Social Studies or History when they get to WW2.

Despite its challenge and depressing subject matter, the structure and film making of it is fantastic.

The sound design with the low-key industrial rumble from the creamatorium ovens going 24/7 whenever the scene is in the house. The smoke from the train full of Jewish prisoners in the background set behind a beautiful garden party. It's haunting but also a great work of filmmaking.

Love Lies Bleeding - 8.5/10

Here's one that 8675309 or whatever his name is hasn't seen yet while he's busy watching bad movies.

A modern day Thelma & Louise with Kristen Stewart playing a huge lesbo. Gritty crime/murder thriller with plenty of roided out bodybuilding energy.

Great acting from Ed Harris and the jacked lesbo Katy O'Brian. Kristen Stewart swinging for the fences, doesn't quite hit a home run but definitely a brave performance.

Se7en - 9/10

This is a really good movie! A friend recommended it to me, and the story is amazing. The theme of the seven deadly sins is really interesting, and I have a thing for mythical stuff so it definitely appealed to me.

While it might not be a perfect 10 because it's an older film and the production styles have evolved since then, that doesn't affect how great the movie is. It's suspenseful, and the ending definitely packs a punch

It's cool to see people discover great movies from the 90's and 00's for the first time and enjoy them. Now I know how boomers might have felt when Gen Xers would watch Godfather or Deliverance

Super legit film, really wouldn't have caught this if it wasn't for your recommendation + trailer that I watched.

Great time travel back to 1989 them, from the short shorts, coke machines, walkmans, hair styles to all the little settings... it was done right.

Rose Glass directed and wrote this so it does make the flow good so I'm impressed. I thought the casting was good too. Kristen Stewart was never on my bucket list as i've never watched twilight so to see her play the role was pretty good. I thought she looked like hilary swank with the crazy 90s haircut.

Katy O'Brian was a great cast, i don't watch TV so I have not seen her in The Mandalorian. a) didn't know she was a police office before b) competed in weight lifting and also c) black belt in hapkido.

I thought the movie was great, ed harris did a decent job; the only bone to pick is the ending which was sort of werid but it all worked.

Family dynamic, 90s drinking, hitting your wife, guns, dad versus daughter, puppy love, sacrificing love... it had it all.

very good watch, thanks for the recommendation!

Good old city hunter, i'm not old enough to really appreciate as I didn't read the full cartooon / anime back then. I did like how it kept the same japanese style. The look, the feel was the same. The pretty girls was there, the play boy look is there, his perv on girls, the gun shooting (never misses, super good posing etc) etc.. it all kept it with the style of the anime.

That I like.. other than that, the script was sub par, the acting was meh.

it was a treat to watch a remake of city hunter anime to see it coming to life.

BTW jacky chan made back in the 90s in chinese so that was also a bit nontragic
