Sometimes when I log on to Netflix, I am confused and bombarded by the sheer number of shows and movies that come my way. Most of the time I don’t know what I want to watch today on Netflix and the volume of content on the platform confuses me more than anything. It has sometimes happened that I have spent an hour browsing through shows and then giving up at the end of it. So, if you’re someone who is searching, but don’t know what to watch today on Netflix, then here’s a list of 7 interesting shows on Netflix that might just save the day!
Director: Oriol Paulo
Released in 2018, Mirage is a mind-fuck of a movie. If you’re someone who likes time-loops and things that make you go, “wait, what?!” then this is the movie that you should watch today on Netflix. Additionally, if you love Money Heist, then look no further because Álvaro Morte plays one of the leading roles here.
When Vera saves a boy’s life 25 years in the past due to a space-time continuum glitch, she doesn’t realise that her life in the present would be altered so drastically. However, once she gets a hold on her sanity, she fights to get her life back.
My Octopus Teacher
Director: Pippa Ehrlich, James Reed
This 2020 Netflix documentary won a lot of accolades including the Best Documentary Feature in the 93rd Academy Awards. The 1-hour 25-minute documentary film follows Craig Foster, a documentary filmmaker, who follows and forges a relationship with a wild common octopus in the South African kelp forest.
The experiences that Foster goes through with his octopus friend turns out to be life-changing, and will definitely impact your life and make you reflect on your relationships with those around you. Definitely a movie to watch today on Netflix.
Director: Chaitanya Tamhane
The 2020 Marathi-language movie, starring Aditya Modak and Arun Dravid, is a film that has a lot of layers. There are various facets of the movie that you have to peel back while also focusing on the main theme – the trials and tribulations that a classical singer has to go through in order to excel at his work. This movie will make you think while taking you to a place of serenity. There’s just a lot of feelings here, and this is definitely a movie to watch today on Netflix.
Love and Monsters
Director: Michael Matthews
Nominated in the Best Visual Effects category at the 93rd Academy Awards, Love and Monsters is a movie that gives us the feels. Not just of action and adventure, but, as the title puts it, of love as well. A movie to watch today on Netflix for sure – I mean, it stars Dylan O’Brian, come on!
When a monsterpocalypse takes over the world, Joel Dawson and the rest of humanity go underground. However, after 7 years when he is able to contact his high-school girlfriend over the radio, Dawson decides to go on an adventure to meet her.
Director: Edgar Wright
Boasting an interesting and impressive cast, this 2017 movie is a must-watch if you’re into high-octane chase sequences and swanky music. The cast is cool, suave and charming enough to keep you invested and whenever Baby is behind the wheel, it’s an adrenaline rush you’d just want to experience over and over.
When Baby, a getaway driver, is blackmailed into a “one last job” situation, things take a very bad turn. Will he be able to get out of the mess?
Watch Baby Driver here.
Don’t F**k With Cats
Director: Mark Lewis
Consisting only of three episodes, Don’t F**k With Cats is a truly horrifying experience that will keep you on your toes. Although the series released in 2019, I watched it just last year and I was hooked from the first minute. Featuring an internet killer of cats who escalates to something more abhorrent, the documentary features internet sleuths who try to find a man who will do anything for clicks. This is a documentary that you need to watch today on Netflix.
Director: Robert Eggers
This 2016 horror movie is hyped, but not enough in my opinion. Featuring a brilliant cast, beautiful direction and a splendid screenplay, The VVitch is a winner in any horror fan’s book. Following a family in 17th century New England who get banished from their community, the Puritans must do what it takes to protect themselves from something malevolent that lives in the forest. Will they be able to save themselves though?
A movie that is famous for its atmospheric horror, this is not a possession film but plays with the minds of its characters as well as the audience. Is it really something supernatural or mass hysteria? Additionally, watching a splendid cast including the wonderful Anya Taylor‑Joy, Ralph Ineson and Kate Dickie is a blessing. You’re gonna remember this one for days after.
