There's something undeniably addictive about a film with a great mystery at its core, and there are plenty of these movies just begging to be discovered. From psychological puzzles to harrowing whodunits to brooding procedurals, here are some great mystery movies on Netflix you should watch before they're gone.
It took until 2007 before the right true-crime mystery came David Fincher's way. Not surprisingly, the acclaimed director made the most of the moment, delivering what many consider one of the best that the genre has ever produced. The film in question is Fincher's immaculate thriller Zodiac, which details the years-long manhunt to find the man behind the brutal killing spree that terrified the San Francisco area throughout the late '60s and early '70s.
Adapted from Robert Graysmith's book of the same name, Zodiac finds Jake Gyllenhaal portraying Graysmith himself as the whip-smart former cartoonist who slipped headlong into his own obsessive hunt for the taunting Zodiac killer.
Fincher approaches that hunt with the same obsessive manner as the man driving the narrative. In doing so, he delivers a riveting first-person account of perhaps the most compelling true crime mystery in U.S. history, if only because the Zodiac killer has never been captured.
He's featured prominently in two of the biggest trilogies in movie history, and even portrayed one of the MCU's original evil villains, but there was a time when Hugo Weaving was just a little-known actor trying to make his way in the Australian indie scene. And while common knowledge would say that Weaving's rise to prominence came when he suited up as Agent Smith in 1999's The Matrix, the truth is it actually began with a wickedly duplicitous turn in 1998's Aussie thriller The Interview. Keep watching the video to see all the mystery movies you need to watch on Netflix before they're gone.
