The King

Co-written and directed by David Michôd (War Machine), Netflix’s film adaptation of Shakespeare’s Henry IV and Henry V borrows the bard’s characters and plot, but changes the dialogue and other key details. Ladybird’s Timothée Chalamet stars. Watch on Netflix

Is Netflix’s The King Shakespeare or not?

You Were Never Really Here

Before he was Arthur Fleck in Joker, Joaquin Phoenix was in similarly irresistible form in this brutal and unconventional thriller from Lynne Ramsay (We Need To Talk about Kevin). Phoenix plays Joe, a troubled assassin tasked with rescuing a teenage girl from a brothel where she is being held captive. Watch on Netflix

Prisoners

Hugh Jackman isn’t playing Mr Nice Guy any more, but then he is pushed to the limit in this deeply haunting thriller. He stars as the father of a kidnapped daughter, while Jake Gyllenhaal is the cop who, in his eyes, fails to put away the chief suspect: a young man with learning difficulties, played by Paul Dano. Jackman takes it upon himself to do his own questioning, and his tactics are heavy-handed to say the least. Watch on Netflix

Gleeson’s purpose once there is to perform a variation of the Turing test on an advanced AI (a strikingly sensitive Alicia Vikander) to determine whether it has consciousness. Things don’t go to plan… Watch on Netflix

Call Me by Your Name

Romantic Tuscany in the summer of 1983 provides the setting for this tale of desire, in which a confidently attractive 24-year-old US intern (Armie Hammer) dares the clever, talented and virgin teenage son (a star-making role for Timothée Chalamet) of his multilingual host family to dive first into uncharted waters for a dalliance.

mother!

Darren Aronofsky’s gripping anxiety dream. Jennifer Lawrence plays a domestic goddess who wafts around her home, breathing life back into the building and stroking the ego of her older poet husband (Javier Bardem). When strangers show up, our heroine bristles. First comes Ed Harris’s ailing surgeon, followed by his wife (a boozy, bitchy Michelle Pfeiffer) and sons. Events spiral, initially amusingly, then terrifyingly, until things get very ugly indeed. Watch on Netflix

Blade Runner 2049

Thirty-five years after Ridley Scott’s overanalysed sci-fi classic, Blade Runner 2049 proves an artistic and philosophical triumph, an unforgettable vision of a deracinated future from director Denis Villeneuve. Harrison Ford returns as grizzled ex-LAPD cop Rick Deckard, befriended by Ryan Gosling’s more beatific, explicitly android cop “K” during his search for a fabled replicant child. Watch on Netflix
