Best Bet

High Flying Bird” (Netflix Film)

Much like last week, we have something coming in fresh from Park City, Utah. Steven Soderbergh‘s latest is a sports drama with a brand new angle. Having the filmmaker do anything these days is a treat, after he flirted with retirement. Luckily, this is apparently one of his best recent titles and suggests a great partnership with Netflix going forward. Our highly positive review here on the site has this to say:

“High Flying Bird” shimmers and Soderbergh, armed with a killer script from Oscar-winning scribe Tarell Alvin McCraney and an excellent performance from André Holland, crafts an extremely poignant film on the art of creation.

High Flying Bird” got some nice notices at Slamdance. Now, you can check it out for yourself. As of February 8th, it’s streaming on Netflix!
