Netflix this week plans to add 17 new TV shows and movies to streaming lineup, including 13 originals.
The new title list will include Hold the Dark (pictured above), an original dramatic movie starring Jeffrey Wright as a naturalist who hunts for a team of wolves who may have killed a young boy.
RottenTomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews, gives the movie a score of 61 out of a possible 100 with nine of 14 critics surveyed saying they liked it.
“A strangely seductive film, and one that understands the difference between simple plot resolution and catharsis, leading us on a journey into Alaska’s frigid heart of darkness that poses more questions than it answers,” writes Andrew Barker of Variety.
“A brutal slog of a film, admirable in its fearlessness in terms of dark subject matter, but the brutality doesn’t feel worth it in the end,” counters Brian Tallerico of RogerEbert.com.
Another notable addition this week: Season eight of AMC’s hit zombie series, The Walking Dead.
