Pop Culture Imports: A Cult Japanese Reality Show Returns, a Samurai Bloodbath, and One of the Best New Netflix Animes
Posted on Friday, March 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.)
It’s nearly the end of March and spring is in full bloom. Or at least, it’s supposed to be. Four days into spring, and the northeast has already been ravaged by a massive snowstorm, cancelling flights and closing down governments. So when you have an unexpected March snow day, what are you to do? Watch some foreign-language movies of course! Because I know the one thing you want to do during a snowstorm is read some subtitles.
This month, we have the return of a soothing Japanese reality show, a wintry Swedish family drama, a bonkers samurai bloodbath, an inspiring Indian athletic documentary, and one of the best new Netflix original animes yet. Tuck in for some of the best foreign-language TV shows and movies streaming now.
