Posted on Thursday, August 23rd, 2018 by Hoai-Tran Bui
(Welcome to Pop Culture Imports, a column that compiles the best, wackiest, and weirdest foreign-language movies and TV shows streaming right now.)
The end of the month always brings with it a few eclectic stragglers on the “new to streaming” lists. But that’s why this column is here: to help you find out the foreign movies and TV shows that are worth the effort to read subtitles. This week, a viscerally disturbing Turkish horror film brings Halloween to August, settle down with a classic sushi documentary, a Hindi adaptation of Hamlet, a dark Japanese teen TV series, and a surreal French drama that pits Marion Cotillard against Charlotte Gainsbourg.
Now let’s get streaming, subtitle lovers.
