Here are the picks:
The Platform (2019)
The Platform is a Spanish sci-fi horror film from Netflix’s impressive international library. Its high-concept story revolves around a tower that delivers food to people via a platform on each level. Throughout this dystopian thriller that takes shocking, sometimes gruesome turns, social commentary rings throughout. You can also watch this movie free of cost on the Cinema HD app.
The Half of It (2020)
YA movie about Ellie Chu, a shy Asian American discovering her sexuality in Squamish. In a love letter to Aster Flores, Ellie helps footballer Paul Munsky write a love letter to a friendless straight-A student who writes papers for her classmates as a side hustle. Aster, however, turns out to be perfect for Ellie. The story is a delicate tale about self-acceptance.
The Incredible Jessica James (2017)
An equally delightful Jessica Williams plays the delightfully self-possessed main character of The Incredible Jessica James. Jessica James, a confident and independent woman, goes on a blind date and ends up talking exclusively about her ex. An entertaining night in with an empowering lead makes this an easy hit on the breakup movie scene.
I Lost My Body (2019)
It opens with a severed hand escaping a refrigerator in a laboratory and embarking on a Paris-wide search for its body. Wow, what an opening! It’s a strange, satisfying story that explores loss, both physical and emotional, with a few flashbacks and elegant animation.
Seeing Okja from Parasite director Bong Joon-ho should be incentive enough to watch it. Taking the form of a cheeky dark comedy and a surreal environmental thriller, Okja follows a young South Korean farmer girl with a genetically enhanced pet pig as her companion. However, a big corporation wants Okja’s delicious flesh. Featuring an English supporting cast including Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal, Okja suckles you in with its sweetness before showing you an up-close look at the meat trade. BeeTV is a good app to watch this movie if you don’t have a Netflix subscription.
Da 5 Bloods (2020)

Over the course of three-and-a-half hours, The Irishman traces the lives of mobsters from the early 1900s to the present day. However, you can break up this tour de force if you need to.
