Welcome to this week's entry for New To Netflix! This week we go from Alfred Hitchcock to Todd Solondz, with stops in-between featuring an animated homage to Jacques Tati. Oh, and how about a little murder in high school? We have shenanigans going on in both the 20th and 21st centuries...

New In The USA: DARK HORSE

Abe (Jordan Gelber) is the kind of obsessive collector type who is such a state of arrested development that it practically nullifies anything Judd Apatow had to say in The 40 Year Old Virgin. Both vile and sad (and as is the director's idiom, quite funny) we watch Abe embark on a romantic adventure with a depressed Selma Blair. Christopher Walken and Mia Farrow show up in supporting roles and both resemble living, breathing acts of taxidermy. Admittedly not for all tastes, but what film in Todd Solondz's filmography is?
