Netflix is swinging for the fences this November, as the streaming giant barrels into Oscar season (and girds itself against the arrival of new competitors like Disney+ and Apple TV+ ) with the most robust slate of original titles in its history. A few modern and established classics have squeaked onto the service this month, with “The Matrix” trilogy returning in time for the holidays and “Rosemary’s Baby” inexplicably landing right after Halloween, but November is all about giving subscribers exclusive reasons to be thankful. And it’s quite a bounty, as strong Cannes acquisitions like “Atlantics” and “I Lost My Body” are being presented alongside starry, internally produced new subscriber bait like the Timothée Chalamet historical epic “The King” (which premiered at Venice) and the Alicia Vikander/Riley Keough vehicle “Earthquake Bird” (which premiered oversees but has yet to screen for American critics).
But there’s no use ignoring the elephant in the room, as Netflix’s month — hell, it’s entire existence — culminates in the streaming debut of Martin Scorsese’s monumental “The Irishman,” which demands to be seen on the big screen, but will be wonderful to savor on your own time at home.
