2. Wild, Wild Country (Netflix)-- Picture a guru who wins thousands of converts and fleeces them, gets booted out of India, basically buys a small town in the Northwest, acquires a fleet of Rolls Royces and a harem of sex slaves and then......things get weird.

3. Tell me who I am (Netflix) -- A young man suffers brain damage in an accident and his memory is almost totally wiped clean. His identical twin brother helps fill in the blanks but the tale that eventually emerges is twisted beyond belief.

4. Three Identical Strangers (Hulu) -- Identical triplets who were separated at birth eventually find each other, become national celebrities, dress alike and try to unravel what happened to them......annnnnnd it's very dark.
A brilliant documentary, which your brother recently posted about, is Never Surrender: The Galaxy Quest Documentary. It's on Amazon Prime.

Another one I found on Amazon is The Formula One Drivers aka The Quick and the Dead.

It's a 1973 documentary about F1. If you're into motor sports, there is one fabulous scene where Jackie Stewart is driving a sedan around to old Nürburgring (14 miles long). As he drives, he describes how he takes each corner, bump, etc. Great stuff.

Another good F1 documentary is 1.

It describes the changes in safety in F1 that reduced the 20% death or serious injury each year to what exists today.

Quote of the film. Jackie Stewart talking bout racing in the late 60's and early 70's.

"Back when racing was dangerous and sex was safe."

But probably the finest racing documentary is The 24 Hour War, presently free on Netflix (I think).

This is the full back story of the Ford v Ferrari fight at Le Mans.
