While at the beginning of the month it rained heavily on older licensed titles such as “Outbreak”, “Corpse Bride” and “Booksmart”, the new week has significantly fewer Netflix launches to offer. One or the other highlight is included again this time, which is why we don’t want to do without our weekly overview. Here we present the most important Netflix novelties of the week from September 5th to 11th, 2022.
When the nominations for the 2020 Oscars were announced, many observers were quite surprised that “The Farewell” came up completely empty handed. After all, Lulu Wang’s emotionally rousing festival hit has previously been showered with awards and With 97 percent positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, the tragic comedy is one of the best-reviewed films of its year. We at DashFUN have also awarded an outstanding rating of 4.5 stars.
The Farewell follows Chinese-born writer Billi Wang (Awkwafina), who lives in the United States but travels back to her country of origin after learning that her grandmother, Nai Nai (Shuzhen Zhao), has terminal cancer. But Billi is not allowed to mention the illness to her grandmother. She had to promise her family that. Because the diagnosis should be kept secret to protect Nai Nai from the painful truth. There are a few emotional last months for Billi and her grandmother, which will probably leave no spectator indifferent…
On Tuesday there will be supplies for True Crime fans “Indian Serial Killers: Diary of a Killer”. In “diorama” you can also watch a marriage fall apart. “Dracula” star Claes Bang will be there.
There are no significant Netflix restarts on Wednesday. You can take the chance to work through your watch list.
As if September 11, 2001 wasn’t bad enough, a week later, on September 18, the so-called anthrax attacks followed. Letters laced with anthrax spores were sent to news channels and politicians. Five people died. The documentation “The Anthrax Attacks” illuminates the case.
As usual, Friday is the day with the most restarts. The big highlight is “Cobra Kai” The sequel to the iconic “Karate Kid” film series is now in season 5.
In addition, you are expected “End Of The Road” a new Netflix original thriller. A widow (Queen Latifah) and her brother (Ludacris) find a bag full of money on a road trip and have not only the authorities but also a killer on their trail.
In “Sous Emprise – Freedom Under Water” a talented recreational diver begins a relationship with her instructor that turns self-destructive.
The weekend has no further notable new starts ready. So enough time to finish “Cobra Kai” or catch up on one of the other titles. How about the following sci-fi highlight, for example?
