Also Available This Week

While this week’s mainstream releases might be a little lackluster, Criterion is making up for it with three releases this week: GATE OF HELL, Cronenberg’s NAKED LUNCH and Laurence Olivier’s RICHARD III.

This week I’ll also be checking out MERLIN: THE COMPLETE FIFTH SERIES and Korean action film WOOCHI: THE DEMON SLAYER.

Manny’s Pick

With the premiere of the sixth season on Sunday the 7th, now is as good of a time as ever to catch up with MAD MEN, who’s incredible fifth season was just added to Netflix Watch Instantly. The show continues to be one of the most gripping and well acted on television and with Netflix, you’ll be able to marathon them and be caught up in no time at all.

See you next week!
