What’s Coming and Going on Netflix in April

What’s Coming and Going on Netflix in April:

Consider this early warning: while there’s a lot of great stuff being added to Netflix in April — really, just look below, if you don’t believe me — the streaming service also loses a movie classic at the start of the month, which means you’ve got just a few days to ensure another viewing of Clue before it vanishes. I write “another viewing,” because surely there’s no way you’ve not already seen it, right? Either way, change your social plans right now. Miss Scarlett won’t be available for much longer.

When she’s gone, however, you won’t be too disappointed — with brand new Marvel, a porn doc from James Franco and one of the finest horror movies in recent memory showing up, Netflix will have a lot to offer next month. Here’s the best of what you should be checking out in April.

DAREDEVIL
The first of Marvel’s Netflix original series focuses on Matt Murdock, an attorney at a start-up legal firm by day, a hyper-violent vigilante trying to clean up the streets of Hell’s Kitchen by night — oh, and he’s blind, as well. Think Mean Streets crossed with Christopher Nolan’s Bat-movies more than another Iron Man, but there’s definitely something to this new direction for Marvel.

A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT
The self-described “first Iranian Vampire Western” is a thrill to watch, with director Ana Lily Amirpour managing to turn genres on their head and create something that’s moody, compelling and more than a little beautiful. A lot of that is thanks to Argo’s Sheila Vand, who plays the nameless girl referenced in the movie’s title; you’ll not be able to take your eyes off her.

KINK
James Franco, of all people, produces this look behind the scenes of online BDSM empire Kink.com, discovering that — gasp! — perverts are people, as well. Director Christina Voros isn’t just pointing out simple truths, however; the movie attempts to describe the transformative and empowering side of the lifestyle, and the result is something that’s eye-opening, educational and more than a little sexy, as well. Despite the involvement of James Franco.

HALT AND CATCH FIRE With its period setting and home network on the televisions, it’s tempting to think of AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire as “Mad Men, but about computers in the ‘80s.” There’s more to it than that suggests, however, not least of which is Lee Pace’s performance as Joe MacMillan, a former IBM sales executive who is far more ambitious — and ambiguous — than he first appears to be. Imagine Don Draper without the daddy issues, but with his own brand of repressed self-loathing. Okay, maybe it is a little like Mad Men, but that’s not a bad thing.

HOT FUZZ
There’s almost no way that you’ve not already seen Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s loving parody/tribute to cop movies, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take the opportunity to revisit it as soon as possible. If nothing else, it’s fun to watch it now and get surprised when Downton Abbey’s Lord Grantham and Broadchurch’s D.S. Miller pop up in pretty big roles. (Or that Cate Blanchett, Martin Freeman and Peter Jackson all make cameos at various points, as well.)
