best foreign movies and tv streaming

(Welcome to Pop Culture Imports, a column that compiles the best foreign movies and TV streaming right now.)

After last week‘s Neon Genesis Evangelion-themed column, we’re back with our regular edition of Pop Culture Imports and the best foreign-language movies and TV shows streaming now. That includes the Cannes darling and absurdist Icelandic dramedy Woman at War, the return of the beloved fantasy K-drama Goblin to a (legal) streaming platform, the award-winning French inspirational biopic The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, and the new seasons of Netflix originals Aggretsuko and Dark.

Fire up those subtitles (or in the case of Dark, those clunky English dubs) and let’s get streaming.

Peter Farrelly Quibi Series

Peter Farrelly, who directed both Shallow Hall and the inexplicable Best Picture winner Green Book, is the latest name to join Quibi, the short-form streaming service. Farrelly will develop The Now, which is said to be a comedy about suicide, which I think we’d all agree isn’t the funniest of topics. Like all Quibi shows, The Now will unfold in very short episodes. While there’s a heavy dose of skepticism surrounding the upcoming streaming service, it’s already attracted big names like Steven Spielberg, Guillermo del Toro, Steven Soderbergh and many more.

HBO Max

WarnerMedia has found a name for their streaming service: HBO Max. It’s not that original, as far as streaming service names go, but it gets the point across. In addition to featuring HBO programming, the new streaming service will also be the home to several original shows, as well as the owner of the exclusive streaming rights to Friends (sorry, Netflix subscribers who re-watch Friends constantly).

The Farewell streaming deal

After a rapturous reception at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, Lulu Wang‘s The Farewell shot to the top of the most anticipated indies of the year and sold to A24 for a deal estimated between $6 million and $7 million. But it turns out that this wasn’t the only deal that Wang was considering. The filmmaker revealed that a “streaming company” counter-offered A24 with a deal that was “more than double” the amount that the beloved indie distributor was offering. But Wang ultimately turned them down.

stranger things 3 review

The kids of Hawkins, Indiana aren’t really kids anymore. Demogorgons and other slimy monsters are plenty scary, but not nearly as scary as the passage of time. In Stranger Things 3, the third season of Netflix’s mega-hit series, characters who once seemed so childish and young are on the cusp of young adulthood, and facing down the future. “One summer can change anything” says the tagline for the season, and it’s an apt description. After a lackluster, slipshod second season, Stranger Things roars back more exciting, and emotional than ever, with a third season that moves things forward at a thrilling pace, and sweeps us along with it.

Liam Hemsworth and Quibi – two names that are sure to immediately pique your interest. But a Liam Hemsworth Quibi series is what we’re going to get, even if we’re not sure what that means.

Hemsworth will be starring in an as-yet-untitled action-thriller series.

(Welcome to Pop Culture Imports, a column that compiles the best foreign movies and TV streaming right now.)

I’m doing something a little different this week in celebration of the Netflix release of Neon Genesis Evangelion, the seminal anime series that has launched a million essays and even more memes. This entry of Pop Culture Imports is themed to Neon Genesis Evangelion and its creator Hideaki Anno, including the acclaimed 26-episode series itself, as well as the follow-up feature films The End of Evangelion and Evangelion: Death (True). Also featured is Anno’s excellent kaiju film Shin Godzilla and an NHK documentary series on Anno’s mentor Hayao Miyazaki.

Fire up those subtitles (because we’re sub, not dub, people) and let’s get streaming.
