Radha Blank in The Forty-Year-Old Version, which she also wrote and directed. | Netflix
The Forty-Year-Old Version and Dick Johnson Is Dead have both debuted on the streaming service, and they’re wonderful.
Definitive proof that we’re not living in the absolute darkest timeline: Two of the best movies I’ve seen all year are newly streaming on Netflix.
Dick Johnson Is Dead and The Forty-Year-Old Version, both of which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival way back in January, share a few things in common. They’re both directed by women. They’re both visually striking. And though one is technically a documentary and one is technically fiction, they’re both so personal to their directors’ lives — yet so imaginative in how they tell their stories — that you could be forgiven for mixing up which is which.
Both movies also got lucky in being picked up
