New Releases on Netflix UK (5th February)

It’s the start of a new month so we have a wide range of additions for you to watch on Netflix UK and I’m pretty sure there will be something for everyone. So, without further ado, here are my top picks for this week:

First up we have a classic comedy from Jim Carrey, “Liar Liar” – this is one of his better films and sees him playing a rather unscrupulous lawyer, Fletcher, with a penchant for not always telling the truth. On his son Max’s birthday Fletcher, once again, lies his way out of fatherly duties and Max meets breaking point. Blowing out his candles he makes a birthday wish that his dad could got for one day without telling a lie. When his wish comes true, friends, colleagues and clients of Fletcher don’t quite know what’s hit them.

“The Look of Silence” is a documentary that looks, literally, into the eyes of some of those who committed genocide in the Philippines in the early 1960’s. Adi is an optician whose brother was killed during these massacres and the film-maker, Joshua Oppenheimer, manages to persuade some of those involved to take part in interviews with Adi; albeit under the guise of a run-of-the-mill eye exam. The perpetrators talk openly and frankly about what they did and, by all accounts, it can be rather unsettling at times. If you have the stomach, it’s a good watch.

90’s crime-drama “The Limey” follows British ex-con, Wilson, as he leaves prison and heads to LA to try and finds out more about his daughter’s mysterious death. Struggling to understand American culture, he recruits the help of another ex-con and start to discover more about his daughters final months. Over time, the pair start seeking revenge on a promiscuous record-producer who his daughter had been seeing before her death but Wilson also looks more into his failings as a father.

In “Tenured”, Ethan Collins is having a rough time – he hates his job as a teacher, his wife just left him and he’s severely depressed. Sadly for the school, Ethan has a tenure (a guarantee that he can’t be fired as a teacher) so the principal gives him the job of directing the school play in the hope that he’ll be able to give them a valid reason for dismissal. The fairy-tale play gets rewritten as a melancholic drama about his failed marriage – starring fifth grade kids!

Speaking of kids, this week sees the arrival of a couple more Pokemon: “Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction” and “Pokémon: XY” have both been added.
