This movie is rich with both allegory and cinemaphotography: Helmsman. Caution: contains surrealistic art, and may proceed too slowly for average consumers of action movies.

A few lines on things I've been looking at

Dark S01 Supposedly a thing with German & English audio, where people are kidnapped and all the buried feelings rise. I could only get German audio, with German/English subtitles, and German subtitles hardcoded in. I believe it is excellently done, but it's definitely not my kind of show. Actors may like the parts, directors may like the screenplay; that's why these things get made. But they depress you. I've witnessed enough people falling apart noisily.

Office Space Follows the adventures of some guy as a cog in a wheel of Inintech, some multinational. It's amusing, but I hardly laughed once. Then it got late and they steered the plot away from my interest so I went to bed. It was that riveting(/sarc).

Leverage S01 This is more to my taste. As we sit here, we know there's guys around the place making millions or billions illegally, usually with a commercial giant(s) or a politician(s) aiding & abetting. They crush any who get in their way. A team of one 'honest' guy (ex-insurance fraud detector) and 4 criminals get together to right the wrongs, and play Robin Hood with a modern twist. Slighly unrealistic, but very entertaining.

Traitors UK & Traitors AU It's a game with a cash prize. About 2 dozen people are taken off to a secluded retreat. A small number are assigned as traitors, the rest are faithful. During the day, they do stuff to build the prize pot. Every night, they meet and must expel one they think is a traitor. The traitors get to kill one faithful also. Last in claims the prize. I'm taking this pair one episode a week - AU midweek and UK weekends. I wouldn't advise binging. It is different.
