A good thriller movie can take your mind off the anxieties of the world, and put you in the shoes of people with way bigger problems than you. Whether the threats they're facing are deadly, supernatural, or imaginary, these thrillers on Netflix will keep you busy for a while.
Everyone knows the line, and its source is 1976's Taxi Driver — a film that critics have spent decades hailing as one of the best films of all time.
Travis Bickle can't sleep, and when he can't sleep he drives his cab. He has no friends and he can't connect with women. The increasingly paranoid Bickle sees nothing but hostility around him, and his reaction is to arm himself for a one-man war against what he sees as the crumbling society around him.
Taxi Driver is a powerful and absolutely essential film directed by Martin Scorsese, featuring early work by acclaimed actors like Harvey Keitel, Jodie Foster, Cybil Shepherd, and of course, Robert De Niro.
If you haven't seen it, see it. If you've already seen it, odds are you wouldn't mind seeing it again.
For most of 2016's The Invitation, you're not sure what's real and what the characters are imagining.
The film stars Logan Marshall-Green as Will, a man still traumatized by the death of his son. He and his wife Eden divorced after their son's death, but Will still accepts her invitation to a dinner party hosted by Eden and her new husband David.
Will doesn't know what to make of his ex-wife's weird behavior or the other eccentric guests, but he's sure that there's more going on than just a party.
The rest of the film unfolds entirely at the dinner party, with the guests acting stranger and stranger. Old friends make shocking confessions and Will's paranoia continues to mount. Mentioning many more details would give far too much away, but we can say The Invitation is a fascinating slow-burn that plays with our social boundaries. Keep watching the video to see the best psychological thrillers on Netflix right now.
