    I'm in the mood to watch a good crime drama with a twist, something edgy and similar to Gone Girl or Memento?

    I have Netflix and all the major premiums channels, so I know there's something good I'm probably missing.

    Any suggestions?

    Saw it. It was good, I may watch it again.

    How about Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy with Gary Oldman? Any good? Or Nightcrawler?

    It's great. And I worked in that area around that time and trust me, every word is true.

    How about God's Pocket with Phillip Seymour Hoffman? I love his acting, and I really enjoyed A Most Wanted Man.

    I'm also binge watching Outlander, but after three episodes of the first season, I'm still on the fence. So far it's been OK, but not "must see".

    Mentioning Phillip Seymour Hoffman made me think of Doubt - while it's not a "cops and robbers" type crime story, I think it still qualifies here and definitely was an excellent movie.
