Here Are The Fifteen Best Crime Movies You Can Watch Right Now:

The movie business is slowly getting back on its feet after almost two years of stopped operations, delayed releases, and canceled projects. We weren’t going to the movies very often last year, which makes sense.

If you didn’t go to the show in January or February, you might not have gone at all. The same is true for crime stories. Many different types of national fluff have come out, but crime stories centered around Britain or about people who work for the crown have done especially well.

Bob Hoskins, who plays Harold Shand in The Long Good Friday, tells some questioning mafiosos, “We British are accustomed to more life, imagination, and a touch of the Dunkirk spirit.”

There are a lot of TV shows on Netflix that are secrets, like “The Sinner,” “Dark,” “Midnight Mass,” and “The Haunting of Hill House/Bly Manor.” But if you want a more complete experience, there are also a lot of mystery movies to choose from.

Killers Of The Flower Moon:

Martin Scorsese’s newest high-profile project brings him back together with Daniel Brühl and Robert De Niro. The two writers, who often work together, are working on a western crime tale that is based on the real-life cover-up of the murders of several members of the oil-rich Osage Nation in Oklahoma in the 1920s. It’s based on the non-fiction book of the same name by David Grann.

Buster’s Mal Heart:

Many of you may have skipped over Buster’s Mal Heart on Netflix. It was directed by Sarah Adina Smith. But you should turn around right away because Rami Malek gives one of his usual powerful performances in this slow-burn mystery.

The movie is mostly about a man named Buster who is being chased by the police for breaking through and residing in people’s vacation houses in Montana’s mountains. But where we meet Buster for the first time is not where the story starts. In fact, we’ll have to read several similar stories to get to the terrible truth.

Blow The Man Down:

I really liked this cold, bloody, and scary independent movie that was written and produced by Bridget Savage Cole as well as Danielle Krudy. The story revolves around two sisters from a tiny fishing village in New England on the coast.

Soon after their beloved mother dies, they have to hide the horrible murder of a man who was planning to attack them. However, their attempts to conceal the crime from both the friendly police officers and the curious neighbors lead them into the unexpected female-dominated underbelly of their town.

The Night And The City:

Bright lights shining through the foggy air of London in the 1950s make for a memorable setting for Jules Dassin’s story about Harry Fabian, an American con artist who is doing everything he can to remain ahead of his debts and the inevitable end that is coming for him.

Fabian’s main plan is to start a wrestling company that is different from the only one in town and compete father against son in professional wrestling and Greco-Roman wrestling.

Even though the main character is American, there are hints of the British crime style that will grow over the next ten years. When you watch Harry run around town like crazy, his quick-talking salesmanship, and the mostly European cast, you can almost feel the future British directors ready to remix it all.

Fruitvale Station:

This is the true tale of Oscar Grant III, a black man who was 22 years old and lived in Oakland, California. Police shot and killed him early on January 1, 2009.  By the way, 2009 marked the start of the popular use of smartphones, so the event was caught on both CCTV and a lot of personal cell phone cameras. The murder got a lot of attention.

Michael B. Jordan does a great job as Grant in what is now considered one of his most important parts. Before this, many people had only seen him as Wallace in the well-known crime drama The Wire. His third movie with director Ryan Coogler was Black Panther, which came out in 2018.

Because it was produced by Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker as well as told with kindness, Fruitvale Station is more than just a sad movie about death; it’s a great celebration of life. A must-see.

Death On The Nile:

His second movie as the Belgian detective Hercule Poirot has been in the works for two years, and it will finally come out in February. Murder upon the Orient Express, which came out in 2017, wasn’t great, but it was pretty and a good way to kill two hours.

In the next book, Poirot boards the SS Karnak, a ship instead of a train, and you’ll never guess who is murdered. Some of the main suspects are Annette Bening, Armie Hammer, Russell Brand, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, and Gal Gadot.

Fear Street:

It might have been a cheap ode to old-school horror movies from the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, but it has a really interesting plot, so it’s on the list.

The Fear Street trilogy, which was based on R.L. Stine’s more mature book series, is about a curse that makes people in Shadyside keep killing each other. The three movies, all directed by Leigh Janiak, are set in different times but are united by these events.

A bunch of teens will have to look into the past to figure out what’s going on before the curse finds them. Fear Street was an exceptionally chilling enigma, unmatched in its intensity.

The Assistant:

Director and writer Kitty Green’s simple film, The Assistant, effectively portrays the mistreatment, dehumanization, and exploitation of women in the workplace. But it also does something that is very hard to do well, especially with all the new books and movies that say nice things about #MeToo or try to ride its cultural coattails.

The Helper is a great read that rises above all the other books about the same topic. It follows one day within the life of a young female helper as she becomes more and more involved with the culture of abuse that her powerful, older male boss encourages.

It’s a heartbreaking, thrilling story that shows how these kinds of regimes set up and keep up their systems of harm as well as debasement. The most beautiful thing regarding this is how scary it is that our hurt and tortured but determined heroine is in more and more danger as she decides to speak out.

The League Of Gentlemen:

British crime films often stand out from other movies in the same genre because they are influenced by the country’s past. The League of Gentlemen, a heist movie by Basil Dearden, is about a group of bad British army soldiers who plan to rob a bank in London.

They sneak into army camps as well as capture the weapons they require by using the skills they learned in the war fifteen years ago. They carry out the entire plan with the military accuracy that kept them alive during the war and the intelligence of the officer class.

The movie shows that crime movies don’t have to be just shootouts and heists. They can also be character examinations of a group of individuals as well as the things that make them break the law.

Layer Cake:

Layer Cake, starring Daniel Craig before he became James Bond, is a deeply funny and highly violent movie that critics have compared to Lock Stock, Two Smoking Barrels, and Scarface.

It has great acting from Craig as well as the rest of the cast, action that will keep you on the edge of your seat, and a deep and complicated theme that might make you rethink what you believe. This is a real-action movie for men who like to think.

See How They Run:

The throwback movie will premiere in theaters worldwide in 2022.  It stars Saoirse Ronan, Sam Rockwell, David Oyelowo, Ruth Wilson, Adrien Brody, Shirley Henderson, and Reece Shearsmith, among others.

The story takes place in the very real West End of London in the 1950s. For Rockwell and Ronan’s “Old Bill” characters, a murder within Theatreland turns into a tough case of whodunit. Coming out this year are Knives Out 2 as well as this. It’s going to be a great year for funny murder tales set in the past.

I Am Mother:

When robots are around, it’s hard to know what they’re thinking. This lesson has been taught repeatedly in the realm of sci-fi. Grant Sputore’s future story about a girl raised by a robot in a bunker after the end of the world is no different.

With Hilary Swank, Clara Rugaard, and Rose Byrne in leading roles, this movie builds tension with Mother’s blank, unreadable gaze. Things go into speed when a stranger shows up and makes people question the metal guardian’s real purpose.

Lucky Grandma:

This holiday season, if you are missing your elderly family, Lucky Grandma is the movie to watch. It’s about a grumpy old Chinese widow named Grandma Wong who puts herself in danger when she wins a lot of money at a casino within New York City’s Chinatown, and the owners of the casino go after her to get the money back.

Sasie Sealy directed the film and co-wrote it with Angela Cheng. She hires protection from a rival gang because she knows she is in danger. Without meaning to, she ends up in the midst of a mob war.

As many reviews have said, the movie is about “luck” and the twists and turns, fortune and bravery, fate, as well as foxiness, that bring our great main character into and out of different situations.

Lucky Grandma will brighten up your night, and maybe even your year, with its bright colors of neons, reds, and blacks, as well as golds. It will also stare you down with a laconicism that reminds you of Jim Jarmusch.

A Clockwork Orange:

This Stanley Kubrick classic is about the leader of a gang within a dark near-future. Although not typically classified as a horror movie, the film primarily revolves around a gang leader in London.

Putting aside the details, A Clockwork Orange’s status as a British crime movie is almost as important as its many new ideas. Like many of the other films on the list, this one looks at crime, sex, and violence, as well as what it means to be a guy, but it does so in such a unique way.

The evil shown doesn’t fit with our time or with the truth. The music is horrible, bright, chaotic, and beautifully arranged, and it all shows a dark, endless truth.

Athlete A:

In this unique documentary, the 2015 case of sexual abuse at the USA Olympics is discussed. Through talks alongside Olympians, their families, and undercover reporters, the film also shows how sexual, physical, and mental abuse is common in gymnastics as a whole.

In an episode from the 1996 Olympics, gold medalist Kerri Strug has to run, vault, and land while her teachers hide the fact that she hurt her foot badly.

She does this twice, limping the first time and crying as she crawls off the mat the second time. The rest of the world, including her family, teachers, and fans, is celebrating. Lawrence Nassar, the child molester at the heart of the video, is the one who takes her away.

Athlete A is a groundbreaking story because it shows that the problem isn’t just with one doctor, the 54 coaches who were also determined to be guilty of sexual abuse, or the morally bankrupt leaders of USA Gymnastics. The problem is with society as a whole for celebrating the abuse of young girls.
