James R | On 22, Apr 2023
Before you start bingeing through Netflix’s new originals, don’t miss out on catching up with some other gems before their rights expire and they head to another service, or just disappear into the digital ether.
This is your last chance to stream the following on Netflix UK:
Batman Ninja – 23rd April
The Caped Crusader time-travels to feudal Japan in this stunningly animated adventure that’s big on spectacle if not plot.
Liar: Season 1 and 2 – 24th April
ITV’s meticulously written drama is a gripping, thought-provoking and disturbingly topical exploration of consent and criminal justice.
The Nest: Season 1 – 27th April
Martin Compston and Sophie Rundle star in this tense BBC thriller about a wealthy couple and a teenage girl who make a pact that will change all of their lives forever.
Blade Runner 2049 – 30th April
Denis Villeneuve’s remarkable sci-fi sequel is a profound evolution of the timeless original.
Lord of War – 30th April
In this darkly satirical thriller, Nic Cage plays perhaps the best-named character of his career in Yuri Orlov, an arms dealer making a killing in the modern world.
The Social Network – 30th April
David Fincher’s take on the founding of Facebook is a gripping drama of petty politics.
iZombie: Season 1 to 5 – 2nd May
From the title down, iZombie is a show that is considerably better than it sounds.
She’s All That (1999) – 6th May
A high-school movie remix that heavily samples 1980s plot beats and 2000s artists.
Roadkill: Season 1 – 7th May
Hugh Laurie makes a welcome return to our screens in this brilliantly dark and grim political drama.
Ammonite – 9th May
Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan are excellent in Francis Lee’s restrained romantic drama about palaeontologist Mary Anning.
The Bisexual: Season 1 – 9th May
Desiree Akhavan (The Miseducation of Cameron Post) co-writes (with long-term collaborator Cecilia Frugiuele), directs and stars in this fantastic comedy drama, which offers a raw, funny and unapologetic take on bisexuality – and the prejudices, shame and comic misconceptions that surround it.
Wild Mountain Thyme – 9th May
A talented cast can’t overcome twee stereotypes in this bizarrely artificial romantic drama.
The Departed – 13th May
Martin Scorsese’s thrilling tale of bent cops and broken men is a remake that might even be better than the original.
Lion (2016) – 13th May
A tiny tale with a gigantic heart, Lion is a beast of a movie that cements Dev Patel’s status as one of one Britain’s best actors.
Fighting (2009) – 15th May
Channing Tatum delivers a breakout performance in this hard-hitting sports drama.
Get Out – 15th May
A scathingly sharp horror that doesn’t need monsters to be horrifying.
Gladiator – 15th May
Ridley Scott’s historical epic, starring Russell Crowe, is as good now as it was over 15 years ago.
Ali & Ava – 17th May
Clio Barnard’s beautifully warm tale of acceptance and affection is an understated delight.
