What’s Coming and Going From Netflix in August

What’s Coming and Going From Netflix in August:

It’s an odd month for Netflix arrivals: The announced debut of the Netflix-exclusive sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was shifted to next year, leaving the titles showing up on the streaming service without a big name to anchor them. That’s not a problem, however; as you can see below, there’s some very interesting lesser-known titles to check out alongside watching The Hurt Locker again. But will any of them be able to fill the hole in our collective heart left by the fact that perennial Netflix favorite Jiro Dreams of Sushi is leaving the service on August 23? Perhaps some of the following five selections could ease the pain.

THE HURT LOCKER (2008)
Kathryn Bigelow’s gripping movie about a bomb disposal team during the Iraq War is everything you could want it to be: suspenseful, intelligent and thrilling. It’s also, watched from today’s perspective, a strange experience where you realize that you’re watching Hawkeye team up with the Falcon after the bad guy from Iron Man 3 was blown up. Marvel movies ruin everything, man. (On a related note, where’s Brian Geraghty’s Marvel role? Surely he’s owned one by proxy, given how many other Marvel actors show up here.)


FOR A GOOD TIME, CALL… (2012)
If there was any justice in the world, this comedy about two girls who start their own phone sex business would have been enough of a hit to make Ari Graynor a superstar. As it is, we live in the darkest timeline where she ended up having to star in the TV version of Bad Teacher. Watch this on Netflix and realize how badly you’ve all failed.


READING RAINBOW VOL. 1 (1983)
Relive your childhood with a collection of episodes of LeVar Burton’s other finest moment on television — I’ll leave it up to you whether the first is Roots or Star Trek: The Next Generation — and, in the process, find yourself thinking, No, wait, how long has it been since I’ve read a book? Come on now. Take a look.


UTOPIA: SEASON 1 (2013)
What if a comic book could tell the future, and only a few people knew about it? This surreal comedy drama from the UK takes the conspiracy theory to a whole new level, and just might convince you that reality isn’t quite what you thought it was along the way. Watch the original before the U.S. version ruins it; apparently, David Fincher’s already working on a version for HBO.


WELCOME TO ME (2014)
Kristen Wiig plays a lottery winner with borderline personality disorder who, after being unable to talk about masturbation during her press conference accepting her prize, decides to buy a television talk show and use it to share her thoughts about everything. Come for the Wiig, stay for the Linda Cardellini and James Marsden, because this movie has it all.
