Tiffany Haddish: Black Mitzvah

It’s been a big year for Tiffany Haddish: she reconnected with her father, discovered her Jewish heritage and, on December 3, she’s turning 40. To celebrate, Haddish is throwing herself a “Black Mitzvah”—any anyone with a Netflix password is invited. The standup special is sprinkled with cheeky anecdotes (the time Beyoncé gifted her a jumpsuit) and foolproof life advice (“If ever you feel like danger is around, bitch, start skipping. Ain’t nobody ’bout to fuck with a bitch that skip!”).

 

6 Underground

Michael Bay brings his signature action-blockbuster ridiculosity to Netflix: expect Grand Theft Auto–worthy car chases, a “fuck-load of dynamite” (according to Netflix) and a shirtless Ryan Reynolds. After faking his own death, Reynolds forms a vigilante squad to take down some of Europe’s most notorious criminals. You’ll never look at the Brunelleschi’s Duomo the same way after watching a mysterious rebel use it as a slip-and-slide.

 

Marriage Story

Watching Noah Baumbach’s bittersweet divorce drama is, as one critic put it, like having Baumbach rip your heart out and eat it in front of you. The plot is similar to his Oscar-nominated The Squid and the Whale—a semi-autobiographical portrait of a family in crisis—but this time he’s flipped the perspective from a child’s-eye view to that of a couple embroiled in a coast-to-coast custody battle. Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver star as the estranged partners who, after spending most of their lives together, find themselves navigating messy separation riddled with lawyers and emotions. Marriage Story has already racked up cred as both Baumbach’s best film to date and one of the top movies of 2019.

 

You: Season 2

Penn Badgley had six seasons of Gossip Girl to perfect his role as a romantic stalker, and now his latest role makes Dan Humphrey look like a hero. Back for a sophomore season, You, based on Caroline Kepnes’ 2014 novel of the same name, stars Badgley as Casanova killer Joe Goldberg. Now that his former obsession dead, he’s moving cross-country to try to fall in love again—preferably with someone he won’t have to hold captive and murder. Joining this season’s cast is The Haunting of Hill House’s Victoria Pedretti as Joe’s new pursuit (a.k.a. Beck 2.0), plus James Scully (Heathers) as her brother.

The Confession Killer

Netflix is trying to replicate the massive success of The Ted Bundy Tapes with another serial killer docudrama, this time focusing Henry Lee Lucas, aka the Confession Killer. In 1960, Lucas was convicted of slaughtering his mother, a sex worker who allegedly forced him watch whenever she brought home clients. Two decades later, he confessed—in great detail—to nearly 600 more murders, until DNA evidence proved the whole thing was a hoax. This unsettling five-part docu-series takes a deep dive into how a one-eyed man from Texas was able to single-handedly manipulate the justice system and make himself a household name.
