What’s Coming and Going From Netflix in May

What’s Coming and Going From Netflix in May: Eli Roth and Brad Pitt in Inglourious Basterds

Eli Roth and Brad Pitt in Inglourious Basterds

May sees Netflix drop a number of watchable titles — goodbye, Skyfall, Romancing the Stone and the original (and best) RoboCop — but sees the addition of many more, including a number of movies that make for difficult, but worthwhile, viewing. If the suggestions below don’t work out for you, there’s always the addition of Legally Blonde and Jimi: All Is By My Side, a biopic of Hendrix starring OutKast’s Andre Benjamin. Something for everyone, for once!

FRUITVALE STATION
Based on the real-life killing of Oscar Grant, shot by a police officer in Oakland, California, in 2009, Ryan Coogler’s movie might not be easy viewing, but it is essential viewing — especially for the performance of Michael B. Jordan, who brings Grant to life in a way that’s thrilling and, ultimately, horrifying. Tragically, almost more important today than it was when it was released in 2013.

GIRLHOOD
Despite the title, it’s not a female version of Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, but instead it’s a French movie about Marieme, a young girl whose life changes after she joins an all-girl gang in the projects of Paris, as she manages to reinvent herself again and again as the situation (and all too many people around her) around her. Electric and honest, and a glimpse into a world we rarely get to see onscreen.

GRACE & FRANKIE
A new Netflix-original series, this one gets by on the strength of the names of those involved — Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin star as the title characters, two women thrown together when their husbands (Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston) declare that they’re in love and plan to get married, in a show created by Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman — than the premise of the show. Will it be another Kimmy Schmidt? There’s only one way to find out.

HOT GIRLS WANTED
Behind the purposefully-provocative title lies a documentary (produced by Parks & Recreation star Rashida Jones) about the influx to the amateur porn industry of 18- and 19-year old women, following five different women getting into the business and focusing on the way that the Internet (and social media) have changed the industry. Brutal and uncomfortable, but worthy viewing.

INGLORIOUS BASTERDS
The movie that more-than-likely introduced Michael Fassbender to the majority of the world, Basterds let Quentin Tarantino break out of his pop-culture obsessed dialogue and into something that’s even more lurid, arguably more violent, and almost certainly more fun. World War II gets remade into a sensational revenge flick, and in the process Tarantino gets to shift into his glorious historical revisionist mode. Brad Pitt never seemed so cool before or since.
