New Arrivals

Here's a list of the best new arrivals on Netflix. You're welcome.

In Search of Israeli Cuisine

Restaurateur Michael Solomonov meets with Israeli cooks, vintners and writers to understand the country’s cuisine and its cultural complexities.

 
The film is at its best when tackling the often uncomfortable discussion of what Israelis have learned, borrowed, and absorbed from the Arab cuisines that existed there before creation of the state.

Clair Obscur

While examining a young woman who has just murdered her husband and mother-in-law, a psychiatrist begins to reflect on her own marriage.

Made with the impressive visual mastery writer-director Yesim Ustaoglu is known for, it happily feels a bit less stretched-out and not so cluttered with arty, time-stopping shots that are an end in themselves in some of her movies.

Teeth

When a virtuous high school student is sexually assaulted, she discovers that she has an unexpected line of defense: a toothed vagina.

Whether you view it as a primordial image from the collective unconscious or a practical warning against promiscuity, vagina dentata makes an indubitably memorable impression -- and an ideal premise for a tongue-in-cheek teen horror movie.
