The Best Dramas on Netflix, Ranked

10 October 2017 9:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Netflix first proved itself to be a real contender in original content starting with “House of Cards,” followed soon after with “Orange Is the New Black” and the bonkers “Hemlock Grove.” Since then, it’s expanded its drama slate to include sci-fi, superhero shows, international stories, period dramas, and whatever “The Oa” is.

The variety of offerings are as wide as the emotions they elicit. While many of these series have some lighter, humorous moments, their main intent is not to inspire laughter but instead provoke thought, fear, wonder, melancholy, anger, and joy. But in the end, they just plain entertain.

Below, IndieWire has ranked the best Netflix original dramas so far.

Two Men Charged in Shooting on Set of Denzel Washington’s ‘Equalizer 2’

6 October 2017 10:29 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Two men have been charged following a non-fatal double shooting on the set of Denzel Washington’s “The Equalizer 2” in Boston.

The Quincy Police Department arrested two 18-year-olds, Dionte Martinez and Thomas Perkins, on Thursday — five days after they fled the scene of the crime on Whittier Street in the city’s Roxbury section. They suspects were charged with assault with intent to murder, unlawful possession of a firearm, and unlawful possession of ammunition after injuring two security guards on Saturday morning.

The two victims, a 40-year-old woman and 33-year-old man, both suffered non-life-threatening gunshot wounds and were transported to local hospitals, where they were treated for their injuries.

According to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office, filming wasn’t underway at the time, and the guards don’t appear to have been the intended targets. The motive remains under investigation.

The men will be arraigned in Roxbury Municipal Court on Friday.

Charlie's Angels Reboot Eyes Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong'o

29 September 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Sony finally moving forward with their Charlie's Angels reboot, after languishing in development for a few years, a new report claims that stars Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong'o are being eyed to play two of the three Angels in this reboot. We reported in May that actress Janelle Monae was at the top of the studio's "wish list" to play one of the Angels, but the actress isn't mentioned in this latest report, so it's possible that she's not in contention for the role anymore. Regardless, with casting starting to heat up, production could begin sooner rather than later.

Variety broke this news today, revealing that the studio is interested in several other "big names" for the reboot, although no specific actors were mentioned. Director Elizabeth Banks came aboard just over two years ago, but our report from May revealed that the script was undergoing a rewrite from Narcos »

'American Made' Review: Tom Cruise Can't Save This Generic Drug-Smuggling Drama

28 September 2017 7:54 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Meet Barry Seal (Tom Cruise), a Twa pilot and family man who became a drug smuggler for the Medellín cartel, led by Pablo Escobar (Mauricio Mejía). The Louisiana-born Seal ran narcotics, guns and money between Central America and an airport in Mena, Arkansas in the late Seventies and early Eighties – then the CIA recruited him as an informant so he could keep doing it and bring them back key intel in the War on Drugs. It's lucrative work if playing both sides against the middle doesn't get you killed. 

It's all true – but so what? »

Secrets of the TV writers’ room: inside Narcos, Transparent and Silicon Valley

23 September 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The demands of binge-watching have changed the way scripts are created, bringing larger teams together in one intense space. Showrunners Eric Newman, Jill Soloway and Alec Berg on how their hit shows are written

Every age creates its signature way of telling and consuming stories. The Jacobeans had the blood and lust of popular tragedy. The Victorians had the great social novel. The 1960s had new journalism. The chosen form of our own age is the downloaded serial drama. While the energy and ambition of screenwriters was for nearly a century invested in two-hour feature films, for the past 10 years, ever since The Wire and The Sopranos and The West Wing showed what might be possible, it has been in the 10-hour arcs, and annual seasons of streamed drama.

Those shows – Scandi-noir, Game of Thrones (and its progeny), Breaking Bad and the rest – have created a new kind of relation between creators and viewers. »

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Represents the Worst of Matthew Vaughn’s Sensibilities

22 September 2017 4:06 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

From approximately minute three, Kingsman: The Golden Circle bolts out of the gate, relentlessly so. Things pick right up on Eggsy (an ever-boring Taron Egerton) as he emerges from the namesake tailor shop in his Sunday best, only to be confronted by ex-Kingsman hopeful Charlie (Edward Holcroft). Before even having a beat to remember who the hell Charlie is, he’s thrust upon viewers — sporting a cartoonish robotic arm — in a taxi chase scene that’s shot so abrasively it reminds you immediately of the proper action directing this franchise lacks. This sequence, among others that follow, is driven by the sheer teenage, video game junkie sensibility that seems inherent in the worse half of Matthew Vaughn’s filmography. At the very least, by throwing it at you from Jump Street, Vaughn has the decency to prepare you for the loud and plastic bullshit he and co-scribe Jane Goldman will »

Trailer Watch: A Woman Grapples with Trauma in Jessica M. Thompson’s “Light of the Moon”

21 September 2017 1:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

The Light of the Moon

“How about you let me decide how I feel?” Bonnie (Stephanie Beatriz, “Brooklyn Nine- Nine”), a rape survivor, tells her boyfriend Matt (Michael Stahl-David, “Narcos”) in the trailer for “The Light of the Moon.” Bonnie has been trying to get her life back on track but finds herself unable to move on. Her frustration boils over when Matt misguidedly tries to comfort her by saying he doesn’t expect her to “get better” immediately. “Oh my god, get better?” Bonnie scoffs.

The Light of the Moon,” which marks Jessica M. Thompson’s feature directorial debut, doesn’t depict a simple road to recovery. Bonnie initially wants to keep the assault a secret and act as if nothing happened. However, it’s not long before Bonnie realizes that her life has permanently changed — if “getting better” is even possible, it won’t be an easy, straightforward process.

“It is not a stereotypical courtroom drama, or an unbelievable rape revenge fantasy; it is an intimate and realistic portrayal of the first six weeks after a serious trauma and the struggles of one woman,” Thompson said of the film in an interview with us. “I wanted to create a raw and realistic portrayal of trauma and recovery, which is told solely from the victim’s perspective. I was sick of seeing assault overused in mainstream media — usually by male writers — as a mere plot device and it was not explored in an honest and real way. Hopefully, this film will help change that and encourage a more open dialogue about an issue that affects more than one in five women.”

The Light of the Moon” took home the Narrative Feature Audience Award at SXSW this year. The film hits theaters November 1.

‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ review: Everything a sequel needs, plus a superb woman villain

21 September 2017 5:10 AM, PDT | The News Minute | See recent The News Minute news »

Before watching Kingsman: The Golden Circle, it pays to be prepared for star power like no other. And yet Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal (of Game of Thrones and Narcos fame), Elton John (playing himself!) and Jeff Bridges are merely the supporting cast of the film.

Make no mistake: the second instalment of Kingsman is still all Eggsy (played by Taron Egerton) and Harry Hart (the indomitable Colin Firth) taking names and kicking ass in suits, and doing it in only the most English way possible — the accent included. »

Brazil Choses ‘Bingo – The King of the Mornings’ as its Foreign-Language Academy Award Submission

19 September 2017 8:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Brazil has selected “Bingo – The King of the Mornings,” one of its most awaited debuts of 2017, as its entry for next year’s foreign-language Academy Award.

Produced by Brazilian production powerhouse Gullane, “Bingo – the King of the Mornings'” candidature also marks a victory for Warner Bros. whose Brazilian office co-produced the title, which will be distributed in Latin america by Warner Latin America.

The submission, voted on by a commission of over 200 film specialists, was announced by the Brazilian Film Academy. It appears to have avoided the polemics of last year’s choice when the publicly declared animosity of one member of the candidature jury towards Cannes competition title “Aquarius” caused three filmmakers to refuse to submit their film for consideration.

Long-anticipated, “Bingo – The King of the Mornings” was chosen from among 22 contenders. It marks the first feature as a director of Daniel Rezende, an award-winning editor on Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life,” José Padilha »
