New Releases on Netflix: November 20th, 2019

The Rainmaker is now on Netflix in the United States

We’re midweek and welcome to your first daily recap of what’s new on Netflix and it’s a big one. Aside from a few Netflix Original titles, today’s lineup is mostly bolstered from a selection of Paramount’s back library. 

Here are a few highlights from today’s new releases before we dive into the full list of 35 new titles added to Netflix US today.

Bikram: Yogi, Guru, Predator (2019) Netflix Original 

Genre: Documentary, Crime
Director: Eva Orner
Cast: Bikram Choudhury
Runtime: 86 min

This documentary exposes takes a look into the famed yoga teacher Yogi Bikram.

It looks into his career and more importantly his predatory nature particularly towards women. Was he leading a cult? That’s what this documentary sets to answer.


Dream/Killer (2015)

Genre: Documentary, Crime
Director: Andrew Jenks
Cast: Charles Erickson, Bill Ferguson, Leslie Ferguson, Ryan Ferguson
Runtime: 106 min

Sticking with documentaries we move onto Dream/Killer. This 2015 documentary is similar in scope to the Steven Avery docuseries Making a Murderer in that it covers a man looking to get justice for his son as he spends 40 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit.


New Paramount Movies

While we’re going to go more in-depth with the best new movies from the Paramount back catalog in future articles, we thought we’d give you three suggestions to watch right now.

  • We’ll begin with the 1968 classic movie Once Upon a Time in the West which features the talents of Claudia Cardinale, Henry Fonda and Jason Robards. The Western is perhaps one of the quintessential spaghetti Westerns you can watch right now.
  • Netflix saw the return of the 2011 Steven Spielberg animated adaptation of Tintin. The Adventures of Tintin is a globe-trotting affair that sees him and his trusted dog go on a fearless adventure.
  • The Rainmaker debuts on Netflix which is perhaps one of Matt Damon’s finest movies to date. It’s about a young attorney helping a family sue an insurance company.
