In August 2020, some films flutter on the streaming provider Netflix, which you should not miss.
If you are looking for enough material for an entertaining movie night, you should get Kingsman: A Secret Service and then add Kingsman 2: A Golden Circle right behind, because the second one will be available on Netflix from August. In addition to well-known films and franchises, smaller and sometimes crazier films crawl onto the streaming platform – and I have selected three of the best for you.
If Comic action, surreal thriller or serious drama, August is not badly positioned – there should be something for every taste.
1. Leave No Trace
A life in the forest, away from society: Will (Ben Foster) and his 13-year-old daughter Tom (Thomasin McKenzie) are happy in the woods of Portland, Oregon. They sleep in a tent, eat what nature gives them and move on when necessary. Their lives only take a turn when they are found – and they have to do community service as punishment. The outsider drama Leave No Trace (2018) follows an unusual yet captivating way of life that has no place in today’s society. When the small family escapes, their arduous journey home finally begins – chased by those who do not understand why they prefer the nature of the city.
Leave no trace has won several awards and nominations, and some of you may also know the director: Debra Granik has among other things in the drama Winter’s Bone (2010) directed, which has been nominated for four Oscars. The drama will be available on Netflix from August 11th.
Don’t look if you suffer from social phobia: Mother! (2017) is one of the most controversial films of 2017, so there is a good chance that you either love the film or hate it. From the Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky is expecting you here again a poetic horror film that explores the limits of the film as well as the horror genre in a bizarre way: a couple lives in a once burned country house, in the middle of idyllic nature. She (Jennifer Lawrence) is renovating their home together when suddenly someone is at the door: a stranger who is just being received by her husband (Javier Bardem). But while more and more guests appear in the house and celebrations are suddenly held, the once quiet life rots, just as the walls begin to crumble.
Mother! You don’t have to like it, but the fact is that you can discuss the film for a while without a doubt once you’ve seen it. The mystery horror drama will be available on Netflix from August 1st.
A Marvel streak that’s as nasty as it is bizarre: Well, you have to like this kind of genre to enjoy Venom (2018): The something different Comic film jumps from sci-fi action to slimy horror elements and back, but there is no question that Venom is one of the more interesting anti-heroes in the Marvel universe: a slimy thing from space literally takes possession of the unsuccessful reporter Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) and connects with him – mentally as well as physically. The two become Venom, a human-alien being whose two halves can communicate with each other in spirit.
Venom is not as demanding as the two films above, but can be a welcome one A change from the well-known Marvel films offer and remain true to the entertaining action we are used to from them. The comic book adaptation will be available on Netflix from August 31.
