New To Netflix: Time Travel, Memory, Cloning and BEST WORST MOVIE
This weeks entry of New To Netflix picks some of the obscure and strange films from the various territories around the world. At this point in time, I would say that Netflix remains at its best for the new (ish) and niche over the mainstream or canonical. With that we have this week a tour through the Russian State Heritage Museum, a Hungarian director making a British Cloning Drama on the Black Sea Coast in Germany, Richard Linklater's "Before" trilogy and and Shane Carruth's wonderful puzzler on logistics and ethics, all of which offer different cinematic forms of 'time travel.' A documentary on Troll 2, thinks about the unique pleasures of watching those kinds of 'perfect storm' of inept filmmaking. And two crime thrillers you may have missed: A glossy Belgian crime thriller with a twist, and a gritty British crime drama that considers the career of one Michael Caine.
