Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
This week, we’ll talk about some cool police detective flicks!
#1 From Hell
Let’s talk about one of the most famous serial killers of all time: Jack the Ripper. He was never caught but with From Hell we get an elaborate guess on what might have happened. Granted, it’s not the best movie out there, but I am fascinated by the topic and the graphic novel the film is based on is cool!
Talking of killers that were never found. The Zodiac Killer is among America’s most famous murderers. The movie take on the investigation is also pretty interesting. Plus, it has Jake Gyllenhaal.
#3 Knives Out
I went to see this film in theatres in 2020. Twice. I swear it was only partly because of Chris Evans. Knives Out is definitely one of my favorite detective flicks I’ve seen in recent years. The story is intricate and the investigation is so well written. 100% recommend!
