Netflix today (October 1) is adding 43 new movies to its streaming lineup, including a highly-anticipated Netflix original.
The new films include The Guilty, a Netflix original crime drama starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a 911 operator whose life becomes forever altered when he receives a harrowing call from a woman who’s been kidnapped. Rottentomatoes.com, which compiles critical reviews, gives The Guilty a score of 71 out of a possible 100.
“The Guilty is another Americanized remake overshadowed by the original, but its premise is still sturdy enough to support a tense, well-acted thriller,” the site states, summarizing the reviews.
Other notable films added today to Netflix: Malcolm X, Spike Lee’s evocative 1992 drama starring Denzel Washington as the 1960s civil rights leader; Zodiac, the taut 2007 David Fincher drama starring the aforementioned Gyllenhaal as a reporter seeking clues to the identity of a real-life serial killer; and Titanic, James Cameron’s 1997 retelling of the sinking of the mighty ship, and a fabled romance with Leonard DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as the accidental partners.
