One of the great things about Netflix is the ability to find some rather interesting movies that you might not otherwise watch. Two such movies are Visioneers, starring Zach Galifianakis, and The Extra Man, starring Kevin Kline. Each stars actors that you have heard of before and each are great picks for your queue.
Forced to quit his prep school job after a humiliating incident, would-be dramatist Louis Ives (Paul Dano) heads to New York City, where he rents a room from has-been playwright Henry Harrison (Kevin Kline) — who earns a living escorting rich dowagers about town. Despite their huge age difference, the two develop a bond as Henry takes Louis under his wing and leads him on a series of wild adventures. Katie Holmes and John C. Reilly also star.
The Extra Man is a really quirky fish out of water story, with some great big names. It is worth giving a try, especially if you like Kevin Kline, who is perfect for the role he plays.
Visioneer George Washington Winsterhammerman (Zach Galifianakis) lives a comfortable but monotonous life in this slightly futuristic black comedy. But when people start exploding from stress and George is showing early symptoms, he’s forced to examine his life. Taking a look at his prestigious job, his sexless marriage and his resistance to life coaching, George reconsiders the philosophy of happiness through mindless activity.
Zach Galifianakis is good Zach Galifianakis in this movie. It is definitely enjoyable and one of the funniest dystopian future movies that you can find.
