Got a spare few hours that need filling? You’re not the only one. That’s why we have selected 2 of the very best Netflix movies to watch right now.
One focuses on an odd couple that divide opinion (such as Malcolm & Marie, which gained a five-star review from tough critics) but the vast majority should please the cinephile within you. So, without further ado, these are the best Netflix movies available right now in Hollywood & Bollywood
The White Tiger
A vibrant rags-to-riches tale set in metropolitan India it may be, but Ramin Bahrani’s darkly comic drama shares more in common with Parasite than it ever does with Slumdog Millionaire. Adapted from Aravind Adiga’s 2008 Booker-winning bestseller of the same name, The White Tiger stars Adarsh Gourav as lowly chauffeur Balram, whose eyes are opened to the metaphorical ‘chicken coop’ that keeps the have-nots in their place, while the wealthy thrive. The novel’s rich social commentary still resonates in this cinematic adaptation.
Malcom & Marie
John David Washington and Zendaya play the eponymous couple in this stylish black and white movie about a director and his partner whose relationship is tested on the night of Malcolm’s latest movie’s premiere. Director Sam Levinson is known for creating the HBO show Euphoria, in which Zendaya also stars, and when production on the series halted due to COVID-19, Zendaya and Levinson discussed making a feature together instead.
The result is Malcolm & Marie, an intimate movie that you will either love or despise. One Total Film reviewer gave the movie five stars, another two stars. Whether you can or cannot stand this Netflix flick, there’s no denying Washington and Zendaya give superb performances.
