We’ve already listed everything coming to Netflix this month – but separating the critical gems from the box-office duds can be tricky. To save you the trouble, we’ve shortlisted the best movies and TV shows that were added in the past week. Server fresh!
The most recent additions to the service include My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman: JAY-Z, The Boss Baby: Back in Business (y’know… for kids) and petrol-head documentary Fastest Car. There’s also a bumper crop of new movies, ranging from arthouse oddity The Lobster starring Colin Farrell to the entire Jason Bourne action series.
