I will definitely looking into these films, I think personally there are four films that you would like that on my list, they are Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Adventure that by one of your favorite director Richard Linklater who did Boyhood and I know you really like that film, Chaos Walking an action film that made you think and that is rare, a animation film named 9 it has got a multilayered story with leaves you a lasting impression on you as those three on Netflix. The other one is Earth To Echo which is a found footage type of film and a coming of age film, which is silently powerful and that one is on Sky Movie Channels.
