New To Netflix: War. Hell. Other People. Woody Allen.

Contributing Writer; Toronto, Canada (@triflic)
And here we are again, faced with the dilemma of what to stream in the ethereal red monster they call Netflix. Contained in this edition of streaming premieres in various markets around the world are two decidedly different war movies with one thing in common, there is a healthy dose of farce and comedy buried in the mix, a creepy Mexican possession flick which might provoke an uneasy titter, an iconic 1980s comedy about possible temporal incest. A man who deals with the details of dead until it all catches up with him, and not terribly far away from that are several mid-tier films from Woody Allen. 



Cinephiles are somewhat split on what is the definitive version of Francis Ford Coppola's 'War is Hell.' The REDUX version is 49 longer, looser in terms of extended scenes and dialogue, and (for me) adds some surreal balance to the initial farcical hoopla and the crazy cattle-killing finale.

The added stops along the way (Including a lengthy oasis at an isolated French plantation) certainly amplifies the sense of 'endless futility' on the trip into the heart of darkness. If you've not had a chance to see this 2001 version of the film, now is your chance.
