James R | On 23, Jan 2020
Whether your planning to hit the gym or eat less meat, don’t forget to make one new year’s resolution catching up on some modern gems before their rights expire and they depart your favourite streaming service.
This is your last chance to stream the following on Netflix UK:
Breathe – 25th January
An uplifting celebration of devotion and possibility, Breathe is a swooningly sincere debut from director Andy Serkis.
American Made – 26th January
This breezy crime thriller – based on real-life events and directed by The Bourne Identity and Edge of Tomorrow’s Doug Liman – stars Tom Cruise as Barry Seal, a frustrated airline pilot whose thirst for adrenaline saw him quit the day job and get mixed up with the CIA. Initially he’s hired by shadowy G-man Schafer (Domhnall Gleeson) to capture reconnaissance photos of Soviet-backed insurgents in South America. But soon enough he attracts the attention of Medellín drug kingpin Pablo Escobar.
A Fish Called Wanda – 1st February
Kevin Kline is hysterical in this screwball farce that may be the funniest British movie ever made.
Before the Flood – 1st February
Directed by Oscar winner Fisher Stevens and produced and presented by actor, environmental activist and U.N. Messenger of Peace Leonardo DiCaprio, the film shows the dramatic changes now occurring around the world due to climate change, as well as the actions we as individuals and as a society can take to prevent catastrophic disruption of life on our planet.
Babylon – 1st February
Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong’s entertainingly awkward cop drama, starring James Nesbitt and Brit Marling, is wry look at politics and publicity in London’s police force.
Princess Cyd – 5th February
This low-key coming-of-age drama is a gorgeous, generous showcase for two contrasting, complex women.
The Prince of Egypt – 16th February
This bold biblical adaptation of the story of Moses is DreamWorks’ first animated movie, but deserves to be remembered for more than just that.
Psycho – 16th February
Shockingly effective in 1960, the brilliance of Hitchcock’s horror remains undimmed to this day.
Shakespeare in Love – 16th February
“Strangely enough, it all turns out well.” “How?” “I don’t know. It’s a mystery.”
8 Mile – 16th February
Lose yourself in Curtis Hanson’s thoughtful exploration of a city and a subculture.
Charlie Wilson’s War – 16th February
Written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) and directed by Mike Nichols (The Graduate), Charlie Wilson’s War is a political comedy teeming with refreshing humour to confront a nigh forgotten political gamble taken amidst the cold war.
Dazed and Confused – 16th February
Among the best teen films ever made, Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused eavesdrops on a group of seniors-to-be and incoming freshmen. A launching pad for a number of future stars, Linklater’s first studio effort also features endlessly quotable dialogue and a rocking rock and roll soundtrack.
Bates Motel – 20th February
Can a modern-day spin-off/prequel based on Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho really work as a TV series? Don’t miss your chance to find out.
