“The menu”

One of several films of anti-capitalist revenge fantasies hitting theaters this year, The Menu has a message you’ve seen before, but with enough dramatic flourishes to make it a meal worth watching to be enjoyed. Chef Slowik (Ralph Fiennes, “The English Patient”) has for his wealthy guests, including a young couple played by Anya Taylor-Joy (“The Queen’s Gambit”) and Nicholas Hoult (“Mad Max: Fury Road”). Saying what to expect would ruin the surprise, but this pitch black comedy has enough twists that at least one is likely to surprise you.

As seen: “The Menu” is Streaming on HBO Max.

“The Light Blue Eye”

Based on the 2003 novel of the same name, The Pale Blue Eye takes viewers to West Point in 1830, where a cadet died atrociously. When the detective on the case (Christian Bale) can’t break the army’s code of silence, he hires one of their own – a misfit named Edgar Allen Poe (Henry Melling, “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”). Given the premise, you might expect a light-hearted atmosphere, a la Sherlock Holmes or Knives Out. But “The Pale Blue Eye” is moody and somber, while offering a handful of thrills amid the interplay of Bale and Melling.

“I, Tonya”

While many people were focused on the most recent anniversary of the storming of the US Capitol on January 6th, there was another infamous incident on January 6th that history will not soon forget: the attack on Nancy Kerrigan at the 1994 Olympics The unforgettable episode was masterfully captured in the 2017 film I, Tonya, which earned actress Allison Janney (The West Wing) her first Oscar for playing the chain-smoking mother of figure skater Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie). . Regardless of whether the film’s retelling is strictly truthful (spoiler alert: it isn’t), the performances of Janney, Robbie, and especially Paul Walter Hauser (“Richard Jewell”) as Shawn Eckardt are outstanding.

“Madoff: The Monster of Wall Street”

It’s been long enough since the ouster of Ponzi mastermind Bernie Madoff — who has swindled Americans out of more than $60 billion in decades of fraud and fraud — that Netflix has given the green light to a documentary about the late white-collar criminal. Using a mix of interviews, archive footage and re-enactment, director Joe Berlinger brutally examines what drove Madoff and the system that allowed him to thrive.

“Paul T Goldman”

Feeling overwhelmed by the sameness of Netflix’s true crime documentaries? Visit Peacock to experience “Paul T. Goldman,” a deconstruction of the genre that blends fiction and reality thanks to the skillful work of director Jason Woliner (“Borat Subsequent Moviefilm”). A decade ago, Woliner was approached by a man named Paul T. Goldman (not his real name) who had written a story about being cheated on by his ex-wife. Believing that his memoir was a ticket to Hollywood, Goldman and Woliner went ahead and produced a show about his life, in which Goldman played himself. Seeing the story unfold within a story is a helpful reminder that all those slick, easily digested true-crime podcasts and shows might not be as dry as you might think.
