A Double Dose of Noah Baumbach Comes to Netflix Next Month, Plus ‘Before Midnight,’ ‘Donnie Darko,’ and More

It's Official Unofficial Noah Baumbach Month on the streaming service, plus picks from other auteurs and some scary Halloween offerings.

The Meyerowitz Stories Noah Baumbach

“The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)”

While October usually signals the arrival of all sorts of spooky, creepy, scary, and otherwise appropriately Halloween-themed films to both theaters and streaming services, this month’s batch of new titles on Netflix offers up a delightfully wide variety of choices that aren’t all tied to the year’s primary celebration of fear. Sure, those titles are there — from more mainstream chillers like “Cult of Chucky” and the new original “The Babysitter,” to more offbeat picks like the cannibal coming-of-age tale “Raw” and the seminal “Donnie Darko” — but this month’s incoming list has more than enough for movie fans who don’t want to shriek at their televisions.

Oh, and it’s also a month we’re going to deem Official Unofficial Noah Baumbach Month on Netflix, as the filmmaker’s latest film — a Netflix original! — “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)” will make its debut on the service, along with his recent charmer “While We’re Young.” And that’s not at all, as fans of auteur cinema in general can take in such modern classics as “Before Midnight,” “Boogie Nights,” and “The Hateful Eight,” too.

Looking to laugh? Netflix has you covered there, too, with the addition of titles like “I Love You, Man,” “Tommy Boy,” and “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.” See? Halloween doesn’t have to be scary!
