Netflix is adding a few dozen movies next month, but there are five that you definitely don’t want to miss.
The Trial of the Chicago 7, which is now available on Netflix, is generating Oscar buzz thanks to strong performances by Sacha Baron Cohen as Abbie Hoffman and Eddie Redmayne as Tom Hayden.

Netflix plans to add 33 new movies on October 1, including some crowd-pleasing favorites that you will want to watch even if if you’ve already seen them.
The new films will include Fargo (pictured above), the 1996 Oscar-winning film from the Coen Brothers that’s based on a real-life kidnapping and murder (not!) in Minnesota. William H. Macy and Frances McDormand (wife to Joel Coen) turn in career performances as a bumpkin car salesman and pregnant police chief respectively, and Steve Buscemi and Peter Stomare are equal parts funny and creepy as two kidnappers who bungle the job. This is comedy as black as a 6 a.m. 7-Eleven coffee and no film buff should wait another day before seeing it. Brilliant, brilliant stuff from all involved. You betcha!
