We have half a 2020 – 2021 that no one in their right mind would have ever predicted. With theaters closed for more than two months, streaming has served as an escape valve for viewers thirsty for new releases. We are going to replay some of the most striking that Netflix has released so far this year.
For all audiences. Drama or comedy, action or science fiction, the offer of so far this year on Netflix has not repaired genres or nationalities. From the movie with the best interpretation of last season (it wasn’t the Phoenix from ‘Joker‘, no) to the first feature film by a national director to consider, the premieres of so far this year on Netflix have left us some how many more than recommended movies.
Rough Diamonds (Uncut Gems)
Direction: Ben Safdie, Joshua Safdie
Cast: Adam Sandler, Julia Fox, Kevin Garnett, Eric Bogosian
Darius Khondji and the pace of the edit elevate the Safdies’ new thing above average. ‘Uncut Gems‘ is a great movie and the Safdie brothers have a great future ahead of them, Best horror movies on netflix, but it is possible that it is also time to change the formula of their works a bit.

Direction: Peter Berg
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Winston Duke, Alan Arkin
Although it leaves us wanting more, this renamed shadow detective, ex-boxer, ex-cop and ex-convict can’t take away the feeling of seeing a decaffeinated pilot who performs better at short distances. Read Also: Best movies 2018 netflix

Address: Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia
Cast: Ivan Massagué, Zorion Eguileor, Antonia San Juan, Emilio Buale
It is not the most subtle Top movies in the world, but it is not that our cinema has had a lot of fantasy genre in recent years. The effort is appreciated and those European comic airs that suit this vertical epic so well are appreciated. Read Also: Best movies on netflix top 10
See ‘The hole’ on Netflix.
Direction: Àlex Pastor, David Pastor
Cast: Javier Gutiérrez, Mario Casas, Bruna Cusí, Ruth Díaz
Vibrant sordid thriller, cruel and with a series of pirouettes and impossible somersaults that it executes almost to perfection. A pleasant 90s gap, in addition to the best the Pastors have done in their lives. If you hadn’t wasted so much time criticizing the film, you would have realized that Mario Casas is better than ever.

Coffee & Kareem
Director: Michael Dowse
Cast: Ed Helms, Terrence Little Gardenhigh, Betty Gilpin

The Silence of the Marsh
Direction: Marc Vigil
Cast: Pedro Alonso, Nacho Fresneda, José Ángel Egido
Vigil’s first feature film, a seasoned director in some of the most ambitious series of our fiction (‘Red Eagle‘, ‘The Ministry of Time‘), is one of those thrillers that shine so much when approaching the genre from a perspective, let’s say, more Asian. Sorogoyen triumphed with ‘ May God forgive us ‘ and now Vigil is on the way to that success. Read Also: Best netflix original movies

The Wrong Missy
Director: Tyler Spindel
Cast: David Spade, Lauren Lapkus, Sarah Chalke, Nick Swardson
Another delicious comedy from the Sandler factory. This time the queen of the festival is the goddess Lapkus Lauren, who becomes the best comedy team of David Spade from the good old days of Chris Farley. Fun and effective, something that seems simple but is actually very complicated. Read Also: Top 10 netflix movies 2020

Director: Michael Showalter
Cast: Kumail Nanjiani, Issa Rae, Anna Camp, Joe Chrest
Netflix continues its comedic hits with the new comedy from Michael Showalter and Kumail Nanjiani, which already boasts pre-marvel muscles in a fun thriller romantic comedy.

Director: Sam Hargrave
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Golshifteh Farahani, Rudhraksh Jaiswal, David Harbor
The arrival of ‘ John Wick ‘ revolutionized action cinema so much that now even films that do not have a proper name as a title have to change it for international exploitation. Surrounded by powerful names and brute force, this extraction full of far-fetched and shocking moments has been one of the films with the most divided opinions of the season. Love her or hate her.
Direction: Alan Yang
Cast: Christine Ko, Fiona Fu, Margot Bingham
Alan Yang jumps into feature film after a few years behind some of the most elegant comedies our TV has ever shown. The man behind ‘ Master of None ‘ or ‘ Forever ‘ has chosen a very personal dramatic fiction medium to make it clear that he is a great storyteller.
See ‘Tigertail’ on Netflix.
Director: Jeff Chan
Cast: Robbie Amell, Stephen Amell, Sung Kang
One of the sensations during the pandemic lockdown season was this science fiction thriller with which its director, Jeff Chan, took up a short film that gave a lot to talk about back in 2016. Los siblingsAmell make this interesting dystopian hybrid full of ideas more attractive.
See ‘Code 8’ on Netflix.
Direction: Patrice Laliberté
Cast: Guillaume Laurin, Marc Beaupré, Réal Bossé
A thriller about the survival of the human being in the middle of a quarantine that is driving us all crazy? At the end of March, ‘The decline‘ became the blueprint of millions of Netflix subscribers. It is possible that a little more work on the story would have helped make a bigger impact, but the shock is there.
See ‘The Decline’ on Netflix.
Direction: Jeff Baena
Cast: Alison Brie, Debby Ryan, John Reynolds
Baena continues to portray the independent misadventures of the industry’s new underground stars better than anyone. After the sensational ‘In Sin‘, the filmmaker repeats with Alison Brie in a dramatic comedy with the delicate world of mental illness as the mainstay of the action. Much darker than it seems at first glance and with a splendid protagonist.
See ‘Horse Girl’ on Netflix.
Direction: Kris Pearn, Cory Evans, Rob Lodermeier
Cast: Ricky Gervais, Will Forte, Maya Rudolph, Martin Short
One of the great animated surprises of the bull run season has been this crazy and funny comedy full of light, color and an extraordinary cast. A brave bet on the part of Netflix, which after the success of its ‘Klaus’ continues to point towards the animated revolution.
See ‘The Willoughby Brothers’ on Netflix.
Direction: Carles Torras
Cast: Mario Casas, Déborah François, Celso Bugallo
Another notch in the credit of a Mario Casas increasingly comfortable in the sordidness of the good national thriller. One of the most misplaced, atypical and unexpected thrillers of the national season. All in a good way, albeit in a strange way.
‘The Paramedic’ never takes himself too seriously, partly because he doesn’t want to and partly because he can’t. And therein lies its magic.
