Netflix is serving up all the fixins.

Longtime Netflix subscribers know the drill: On the first of the month, a large bundle of Hollywood movies shows up for you to peruse. November will follow suit, but with less product than usual. Welcome to the new Netflix: A streaming studio committed to investing in high-end original programming, not just a haul of first-run leftovers. Next year the entertainment giant is planning on releasing 80 original movies, from A-listers like Martin Scorsese and Will Smith.

The good stuff comes mid-month now, and you’ll want to take notes.

What’s new on Netflix: Editor’s picks

Wheelman

Wheelman stars Frank Grillo as a professional getaway driver who finds himself with $200,000 in his trunk and some very bad people on his tail after a bank job goes pear-shaped. Staged almost entirely within the confines of the car, Wheelman blends an intense neo-noir storyline with a gritty, charismatic lead performance by Grillo. More French Connection than The Fast and the Furious, Wheelman is a ride well worth taking. —David Wharton

1922

There’s yet another Stephen King adaptation landing on Netflix, and this one involves rats and murder. In Zak Hilditch’s take, Thomas Jane plays Wilfred James, a Nebraska farmer who has a crisis of conscience when wife Arlette (Molly Parker) says she wants to move to the city and take their teenage son. What follows is a signature King ghost story but it expands in Jane’s dead-eyed portrayal of Wilfred. Mike Patton provides the anxiety-inducing soundtrack, and it couldn’t have been a better choice.Audra Schroeder

The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

Noah Baumbach has successfully usurped Woody Allen’s title as the greatest living director of New York comedies. His latest love letter to the Big Apple comes in the form of The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), a thoughtful meditation on the challenge of letting the pain caused by a parent go. Dustin Hoffman’s Harold Meyerowitz is an aging sculptor, largely overlooked in his time. His children, played respectively by Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, and Elizabeth Marvel, are all semi-dysfunctional, thanks to Harold’s over or under-involved parenting. As a comedy, it certainly isn’t a laugh riot, but it absolutely leaves an impression. Chris Osterndorf

American Vandal

Netflix has been growing its true-crime library with Making a MurdererThe KeepersAmanda KnoxAudrie & DaisyCasting JonBenetStrong Island, and the upcoming Long Shot. But with American Vandal it appears to be hedging its bets and going right for parody. American Vandal is, at its core, an eight-episode dick joke. Twenty-seven faculty cars were defaced with dicks in the parking lot of Hanover High School, and Dylan Maxwell (Jimmy Tatro) is the main suspect. “Everyone thinks I did it,” he says in the first episode.

“Did what?” the interviewer asks.

“The dicks.”

And so begins the exhaustive, hilarious search for answers, in the style of Making a Murderer or Serial—Audra Schroeder
