(Welcome to Pop Culture Imports, a column that compiles the best, wackiest, and weirdest foreign-language movies and TV shows streaming right now.)
Like the start of every school season, September brings with it something old and something new for this week’s Pop Culture Imports. The acclaimed Brazilian crime drama City of God makes its way to streaming, while HBO premieres its first international TV series with a gender-bent take on Sherlock Holmes. Plus we have Netflix’s first Indian horror series co-produced by Blumhouse, a Luxembourgian rural thriller, and a sweeping Spanish historical drama series.
Get in subtitle lovers, we’re going streaming.
