Streaming: Netflix is still a mini-haven for foreign films

The Wailling wasthe 3rd most popular South Korean movie in the US last yearafter Train to Busan and The Handmaidenby Brian Zitzelman

The accepted mindset is that Netflix Instant is no longer a paradise for cinephiles.There are countless things to binge,sure,but large swaths of those are the service's original series and TV series from other networks.For moviegoers interested in material beyond the recent blockbusters or Hollywood fare,the pickings are much much slimmer than they once were.For example,those spurred to view the work of Meryl Streep after her powerful speech at Sunday's Golden Globeshave only five streaming options,two of them being documentaries.A Hepburn fanatic,be it for Katharine or Audrey,has but two pictures to choose from.

Most Coveted Things from 2016 Films

Year in Review.Every afternoon,a new wrap-up.TodayMurtadawith a wish list...

What did you covet the most on the big or small screen this year?Was it a costume,a prop,or even a place or living thing?Here is my personal list in case you haven't yet completed your Christmas shopping.

Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard's white linen costumes inAllied
Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard play a Canadian and a French spy respectively,who meet in Casablanca.They take an excursion to the desert outside the city right before completing their very dangerous assignment.They practise shooting with firearms,they bond,they fall in lust.All the while wearing gorgeous white linen on khakis.It must be the gorgeous desert.Or maybe the longing.Or could be just how breezy and stylish these linen costumes are.

Lunchboxes,records,and living thingsafter the jump...
