Welcome to a brand new column highlighting, well, what is New To Netflix.  Not that we are actually new to Netflix, we're just happy, able, willing to help you find out what kind of 'Twitch-y' material is coming to the big red virtual envelope in the streaming-room. 

Because the company operates in many territories outside of the US, and we try to cater to everyone we can, we are going to not just highlight a few films every week that are arrive to Netflix streaming service offered in the United States but also Canada and the UK.

New In The USA: Kaboom

One of the best things audiences will get out of Gregg Araki's latest joint, Kaboom, is some well thought out and thorough advice on cunnilingus from rising star Juno Temple. Well, that and its very pretty cast parading around in holier-than-thou-coolness.

Otherwise, the flat, though colourful, look of the film, its refusal to take anything too serious, or spend too much effort on story or character, leave the film fitfully entertaining but rather stuck in the middle of the directors C.V. It is half-way between the stoner classic Smiley Face, and his more narcissistic-hubris laden debut The Doom Generation. I was a bit reticent to fully embrace this film at first, but it has really grown on me in the time since, give it a whirl with an open mind and throw all seriousness out the window.

It would be really helpful if you guys turned this into a weekly feature, and expanded the number of titles you select per week, per territory. Maybe up to 5 new releases per week, per territory, to help us all keep up, then link to your previous reviews of these films, if applicable. Also, new thought: spotlight indie Netflix releases, those films where streaming/VOD is their debut, and which we the public would have a challenging time hearing about or discovering otherwise.

Thanks for the feedback, Dave! We definitely intend to expand future columns!
