    I was very disappointed. it is not easy to make a boring movie with such good ingredients.

    Age of Samurai - Netflix.

    Pretty good docudrama.

    Only thing that was a bit annoying was each historian trying to over dramatise every event.

    Nothing really happens in this movie.
    The main character is so dumb, way stupider than the real life persona this movie is supposedly based on.
    This is an artsy flick based on an urban myth.
    Two hours of nothing.

    Can you suggest a good psychological thriller? (something recent-ish, say from 2017-)

    Age of Samurai - This is so generic. It isn't any different from other documentaries that came out in the 90's and early 2000's. It looks so dumb and hokey and they just skip over everything like the majority of documentaries do. This is somehow more condensed than a Wikipedia article.
