What’s Coming and Going on Netflix in April

What’s Coming and Going on Netflix in April: Netflix

Netflix

For those who’ve been despairing about the number of great movies that have been leaving Netflix’s streaming service in recent months, the start of April might have made you very happy indeed. In case you haven’t noticed, a number of genuine classics were added to the service at the beginning of this month, including Boogie Nights, The Shawshank Redemption and Erin Brockovich. (There was also The Running Man, but that hardly counts as a classic…) Here are our five picks for must-sees this month, along with a list of everything that’s coming and going throughout all of April. It’s enough to make you want to stay inside and miss out on the beginning of the good weather.


2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY
One of two Stanley Kubrick classics added to the service this month, 2001 remains a benchmark in sci-fi cinema, with a look that feels as oddly contemporary (and contemporarily odd) today as it did when released almost half a century ago. Thankfully, we’re not living in the future this movie promised, which means that the chances of a psychedelic freak-out any minute is significantly lower than it would be otherwise. On the other hand, no groovy orange space suits to play around in.


A CLOCKWORK ORANGE
The other Kubrick, and it’s the movie that was considered so morally reprehensible that it was withdrawn from distribution in the U.K. for decades. Malcolm McDowell shines in this adaptation of the Anthony Burgess novel, with his Alex as arrogant, scary and charming as the story requires him to be. For those who only know McDowell from latter performances, this might raise some eyebrows.


THE PRINCESS BRIDE
If the idea of a fairy tale that’s also a parody of fairy tales and a heartwarming story of true love triumphing over impossible odds sounds like your idea of the least enjoyable movie ever made, then you clearly haven’t seen The Princess Bride, the rare movie that deserves the utter adulation of its cult fanbase. Filled with quotable lines, winning performances and the greatest Mandy Patinkin role of his entire career (Sorry, Chicago Hope, but you know it’s true), this really is a must-see.


THE UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT: SEASON 2
Talking of things that really should be annoying, yet end up being somewhat adorable and fun, Tina Fey and Robert Carlock’s Netflix original sitcom returns for a second season this month, which sees cameo appearances from Girls’ Zosia Mamet and Fred Armisen, as true love beckons for Titus and Lillian and Kimmy becomes a Christmas elf. Well, for a while, at least.


TEAM FOXCATCHER
Never mind the Steve Carrell/Channing Tatum dramatization of the story of David and Mark Schultz, here’s a documentary retelling of events that was six years in the making, and features the involvement of David’s widow Nancy. The truth behind one of the most shocking stories in sports history feels even more shocking — and tragic — in this format.
