'Snowpiercer,' 'Nebraska' and More on Netflix This November (Plus Indiewire's Picks)

Netflix is at it again this November with a full roster of new streaming options sure to please the diverse tastes of any movie and/or television fan. Last month, Netflix brought Oscar-winning hits like “Django Unchained” and blockbusters such as “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” to its every-growing library, and this month they’re following suit with a handful of award-winners and fan-favorites, in addition to new original comedy specials from Doug Benson and Chelsea Peretti. They’re even adding some of 2014’s most beloved independent releases, including “Ida” and “The One I Love.”

Here’s the complete rundown of Netflix’s November releases, including Indiewire’s personal picks for what to stream. 

Available 11/1
“Artifact” (2012)
“Babes in Toyland” (1961)
“Bali: Season 1” 
“Hell is for Heroes” (1962)
“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” Season 9
“Kingpin” (1996)
“Portlandia” Season 4
“Trading Mom” (1994)
“Spike” (2008)
“Total Recall” (1990)

Indiewire Pick: “The Rocketeer” (1991)

The nostalgic must-see addition of the month is Joe Johnson’s rollicking action-adventure starring Billy Campbell, Jennifer Connolly, Alan Arkin, Timothy Dalton and Terry O’Quinn. In this stylish, period adventure, a stunt pilot stumbles across an experimental Nazi jet pack that
transforms him into a one-man air force, but it also makes him a target for mobsters, spies, FBI agents
and, most memorably, millionaire Howard Hughes. The climactic blimp action sequence is enough of a reason to give this a stream.

“Altman” (2014)

“Fading Gigolo” (2014)

“Doug Benson: Doug Dynasty” (2014) – Netflix Original

Indiewire Pick: “Virunga” (2014)

This Netflix Original documentary from filmmaker Orlando Von Einsiedel (“Skateistan: To Live and Skate Kabul”) is a powerful look at the fight to protect the titular African national park from poaching rebels and greedy British oil companies. Von Einsiedel’s compelling doc plays more like an ensemble thriller than a traditional non-fiction feature.

Available 11/8
“Louder Than Words” (2014)

Indiewire Pick: “Nebraska” (2013) 

No one exposes the humor in heartbreak more effectively than director Alexander Payne, and “Nebraska” is a deadpan, poignant gem that cuts deep. Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor, this black-and-white odyssey through the American heartland features stellar performances from Bruce Dern, Will Forte and June Squibb. For anyone that missed this 2013 highlight, now’s the time to catch up.

“Nikita” Season 4
“Snowpiercer” (2013)

Indiewire Pick: “Ida” (2014) 

Shot in Bergman-approved 4:3, Pawel Pawlikowski’s gorgeously bleak “Ida” is a keen retrograde study of classic European cinema that simultaneously feels timeless. One of the year’s most critically acclaimed films and a shoe-in Oscar-nominee for Best Foreign Language Film (despite the fickle nature of the category), the drama centers around a young nun who learns the truth about her namesake and family history while visiting an aunt.

Nothing is at it seems in Charlie McDowell’s romance-meets-“Twilight Zone” directorial debut. Confronted with the potential end of their marriage, Ethan (Mark Duplass) and Sophie (Elizabeth Moss) take off for a weekend together,
hoping to negotiate their future. When they reach their idyllic destination, however, the couple strolls into
a bizarre new brand of trouble. Brace yourself for two exceptional performances from Duplass and Moss, plus a wild story we wouldn’t dare spoil here.

Available 11/30
