(Welcome to Pop Culture Imports, a column that compiles the best foreign movies and TV streaming right now.)
October has arrived and with it, the spooky season. So it’s time to turn to horror, and if not that, the horror within humanity with our latest batch of the best foreign movies and TV streaming now. First there are two hidden martial arts gems streaming on Netflix, including a gripping Vietnamese action flick starring Veronica Ngo from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and Wong Kar-wai‘s Ip Man biographical drama not starring Donnie Yen. Also on our list is J.A. Bayona‘s Spanish-language directorial debut, as well as an ambitious Swedish sci-fi movie and a fascinating Netflix crime procedural experiment.
Let’s fire up those subtitles and let’s get streaming.
