Netflix offers thrillers, goofy stories worth watching

World War I epic is unflinchingly visceral

Last week saw two compelling releases from Netflix, plus a friend's recommendation of a streaming release that premiered last year, in which the ghost story was the most lighthearted and family-friendly.

'The Strays'

The racial commentary of "The Strays" is as confrontational as "Get Out," but stripped of Jordan Peele's satirical edge, while also infused with a distinctly British flavor of internalized racism.

Ashley Madekwe plays a dual protagonist role that takes cultural code-switching to sociopathic extremes, as we gradually realize that she's far from heroic, even in her own life story.
