Flight (2012)

Genre: Drama, Thriller
Director: Robert Zemeckis

From Paramount Pictures, the return of Flight on Netflix in the United States.

The Denzel Washington-led movie is about a commercial airline pilot facing a crash investigation after a freak accident calls into question his problem with drugs and alcohol.

Here’s what the critical consensus for the movie was, according to RottenTomatoes:

“Robert Zemeckis makes a triumphant return to live-action cinema with Flight, a thoughtful and provocative character study propelled by a compelling performance from Denzel Washington.”

Endless Night, which hails from Belgium, is coming to Netflix in multiple regions worldwide today exclusively (although not labeled as a Netflix Original).

The new six-part series sees a 17-year-old befriending a group of teenagers who use a drug that allows them to dream while awake.

Trainwreck: Woodstock ’99 (Limited Series)

Genre: Documentary
Director: Jamie Crawford

Originally called Clusterf***: Woodstock ’99, this three-part docu-series was recently renamed, no doubt to make it a big friendlier to search for on Netflix.

Segue now set aside, this new docu-series seeks to tell you the story of what exactly happened at Woodstock to make it the clusterfuck its now commonly associated with. Stand aside Fyre Festival, you’re small change compared to this infamous festival.
