Roku Picks of the Week

Worthwhile viewing available instantly on Netflix.

Paris, Je T'aime
Short films, all set in Paris, by some big time directors (including the Coen Brothers, Alexander Payne and Alfonso CuarĂ³n). Makes me wish there was more of a market for short films.

Let the Right One In
It takes a lot for me to recommend a horror movie. It takes a lot for me to recommend a Swedish movie. This film cleared both bars.

Super High Me
More than just an amusing stunt.

Previous picks:
Harvard Beats Yale 29-29
This documentary isn't really a sports story. The casual name dropping in this film is unbelievable. Ivy Leaguers rule the planet.

Second Skin
I saw this documentary at SxSW in 2008. Seems a little quaint now, but if you're curious about my typical customers and coworkers, check it out. Entertaining.

Party Down: Season 1
I've already recommended this to most of you. It's among the funniest shows on TV.

49 Up
Fascinating in concept and execution.
