New To Netflix: Miscellany Or Potpourri?

Contributing Writer; Toronto, Canada (@triflic)
In this edition of our biweekly Netflix column, the complete lack of focus is exactly the point. From a huge Oscar-winning animated film to a micro-sized black and white period piece on the early days of computer chess, and from mo-cap'd Hollywood rock 'em sock 'em robots to a dark comedy about grieving and shoplifting, there is nothing if not variety on offer. Onwards.


I wasn't exactly the top champion of Abbas Kiarostami's slow burning 'long car ride through Tokyo' film when it came out a couple of years ago. However, the opening shot is a masterclass in misdirection and cinematic illusion. Watch the opening scene, and proceed with caution depending on your level of engagement.
