11. The Pale Blue Eye
The Pale Blue Eye premiered on Netflix on Jan. 6, so if you were busy those first few weeks of the new year, like we all seemed to be, you probably missed The Pale Blue Eye. The Netflix original movie was written and directed by Scott Cooper. It’s based on the novel of the same name by Louis Bayard, which was published in 2003.
In The Pale Blue Eye, Augustus Landor (Christian Bale) and military cadet Edgar Allen Poe (Harry Melling) investigate a string of mysterious murders in and around West Point at the United States Military Academy in the 1830s.
While The Pale Blue Eye isn’t as big of a hit as one might expect with such a star-studded cast and interesting story, it’s still a good movie worthy of your time. If you’re in the mood for a dark mystery, The Pale Blue Eye is the pick for you to watch on Netflix!
Cast: Christian Bale, Harry Melling, Gillian Anderson, Lucy Boynton, and Robert Duvall
