Accident

In an attempt to dispel the myth that there is nothing to watch on Netflix’s Watch Instantly service, I scour the new releases and pore through the existing catalogue to find titles that are both off the beaten path and well worth viewing. On a bi-weekly basis I bring to you the treasure uncovered during the course of that hunt. From the new and noteworthy to the unsung sort-of-classics, there’s movie gold to be found in the wide open spaces and hidden crevices alike. Care to dig around Netflix’s crevices with me? Here are 15 movies you should be streaming this week.

This Week in DVD

Welcome back to This Week In DVD! Lots of titles to choose from today in all three categories including two brilliant Criterion releases, the second Robert Downey Jr Sherlock Holmes film, a Dutch family film that stars a frequently naked lady from Game of Thrones, and a mixed bag of direct to DVD releases. As always, if you see something you like, click on the image to buy it. Accident Ho Kwok-fai (Louis Koo) is the brains behind a four-person team of assassins who specialize in making their hits look like accidents, but when one of their own is killed in an accident not of their making he suspects the team is being targeted. Johnnie To produced this dark little gem that teases a couple well choreographed action scenes but focuses instead on suspense and feelings of paranoia, loss and suspicion. It’s a sharp thriller that surprises more than once throughout its short running time, and it marks director Soi Cheang as a director unafraid to go against the usual stylized Hong Kong action grain. Some of the choreographed accidents are incredibly precise and seem to rely on an awful amount of luck, but they are professionals after all. Shout! Factory’s first foray into Asian cinema is a winner.
