In addition to being one of the best documentaries of the past few years, it has also been one of the least watched, so it’s fantastic that a service like Paramount+ can help get the word out about it. A Tale of the Sanfords, a family from the suburbs of northern Washington, DC, is set to premiere at Tribeca in 2019. They have been recording themselves on film for the past two decades. The name came from the family’s closeness to the White House, even though their way of life was very different from that of the current residents.

American Honey

Even though it’s almost three hours long and was made with unknown actors, this epic look at American youth is still one of the most important and impressive movies of the 2010s. Star, played by Sasha Lane, is a typical adolescent who runs away from home and becomes part of a group of young salespeople that travel throughout the Midwest. She grows romantically attached to the group’s leader, a rebel (Shia LaBeouf) (an unforgettable Riley Keough). There’s a buzzing vitality in this film that doesn’t appear in movies nearly frequently enough.

  • Creator: Andrea Arnold
  • IMDb Rating: 7.0/10
  • Stars: Sasha Lane, Shia Beloouf, Riley Keough, Crystal Ice

The Ring

If you see the cursed videotape, you will die within a week. The Ring may be an anachronistic throwback to a bygone era of filmmaking, but it still manages to give viewers goosebumps. The first major Hollywood film to adapt Japanese “J-horror” for an English-speaking audience set a high standard, with emotional stakes that felt grounded but horror that felt other-worldly.

  • Creator: Gore Verbinksi
  • IMDb Rating: 7.1/10
  • Stars: Naomi Watts, Martin Henderson, Brian Cox

Mission Impossible Series

The Mission: Impossible film series, starring Tom Cruise, got off to a great start. Who could forget the scene where Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt dangles from a ceiling and must collect his own sweat to silence an alarm?

John Woo joined the series for the sequel that was unfairly criticized, and the series has since gotten back on track with Rogue Nation and Fallout, both of which were directed by Christopher McQuarrie, who had worked with Cruise on Jack Reacher. All but the third movie (directed by J.J. Abrams, and mainly a mediocre one besides a renowned villain turn by Philip Seymour Hoffman) are available to Paramount Plus subscribers, while the third one is available to Paramount Plus subscribers who have Showtime.

  • Genre: Action
  • Creator: Christopher McQuarrie
  • IMDb Rating: 7.4/10
  • Stars: Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Ving Rhames

The Conversation

With this stunning story of a surveillance expert who thinks he has found a murder plan, Francis Ford Coppola wrote and directed a drama that is possibly even better in between the first two Godfather films. In a movie about paranoia, privacy, and power, Gene Hackman is the star of a stellar cast. Interestingly enough, The Godfather Part II won Best Picture despite it being nominated.

  • Genre: Action
  • Creator: Christopher McQuarrie
  • IMDb Rating: 7.4/10
  • Stars: Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Ving Rhames
