Amazon this week plans to add seven new TV shows and movies to its Prime streaming lineup, including two originals.
The new titles will include Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot (pictured above), an Amazon original movie from director Gus Van Sant about an auto accident victim (Joaquin Phoenix) whose life becomes a cartoon in more ways than one.
RottenTomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews, gives the movie a score of 76 out of a possible 100 with 127 of 167 critics saying they like it.
“Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot avoids inspirational biopic clichés thanks to sensitive work from writer-director Gus Van Sant and the admirable efforts of a well-chosen cast,” the site states, summarizing the reviews.
Also notable this week: Season three of The Expanse, Syfy’s sci-fi drama about a futuristic colonization of the Solar System. (The show was canceled after season three, but Amazon Prime has funded a fourth season.); and season one of White Dragon, an Amazon original series about a sheltered London professor (Jonah Mulray) who tries to solve the mystery of his wife’s sudden death.
