Some people spend their days arguing over the merits of Netflix and how it’s “killing cinema” as we know it, but the rest of us know better. It’s just one more way to re-watch the movies we already love and find new ones to cherish. This month sees plenty of both hitting the service.
The complete list of movies and shows hitting Netflix this month — November 2018 — is below, but first I’m going to highlight a few that stand apart from the bunch.
Netflix Pick of the Month
Cam (11/16) feels like the unlikely mash-up of Irwin Winkler’s The Net (1995) and David J. Schow’s short story “Red Light” — if you haven’t read Schow’s award-winning tale do so soon, but you can skip The Net if you’ve somehow managed to do so before now. The shared conceit is that the more we put ourselves out there the less of us remains. It puts traditional concerns of identity and paranoia in a modern setting, and it’s all the more harrowing for it. Madeline Brewer gets a standout role here too after shining on the periphery of shows like Orange Is the New Black and The Handmaid’s Tale. Give it a watch, and maybe re-think your own time spent online.
