Three new movies hit Amazon Prime Video this week.
The first, arriving on Friday, is Akilla's Escape (2021). The crime drama follows a drug dealer who captures a 15-year-old boy who happens to be a member of a dangerous gang. Critics liked Akilla's Escape, so. Make of that what you will.
On Saturday, you have two options: Cowboys & Aliens (2011) and Wanderlust (2012). Watch the former if you're on a Daniel Craig kick after his final go as James Bond in No Time To Die, or go for the latter if you want a middling comedy about a married couple who end up at a commune. Big decision.
Last week's arrivals include Justin Bieber: Our World (2021), Madres (2021), The Manor (2021) and Lansky/A Righteous Man (2021).

Best Amazon Prime Video original movies
The Mad Women's Ball (2021)Amazon Prime Video
Mélanie Laurent directs, co-writes and stars in this emotional French thriller set in the late 19th century. Laurent is Geneviève, a nurse who attempts to free Eugénie (Lou de Laâge), a woman committed to a mental asylum when her family learns she communicates with spirits. Carried by outstanding performances from its two leads, The Mad Women's Ball poignantly sweeps the inequities of the era into its disturbing melodrama. An accomplished watch.
Blow the Man Down (2019)Amazon Studios
The Coen Brothers meet Wes Anderson in this black comedy thriller steered by two brilliant young female leads. Set in a snowy fishing town in Maine, Blow the Man Down follows sisters, played by Morgan Saylor and Sophie Lowe, who try to hide the body of a man after he attacked one of them and she fought back. While on their crime caper, they find themselves digging up the town matriarchs' dark secrets, spinning this into a noir mystery. It's as wonderful as it sounds.
You Were Never Really Here (2017)Amazon Studios
A psychological thriller starring a pre-Joker Joaquin Phoenix? Yeah, more people need to watch You Were Never Really Here. Lynne Ramsay's masterful take on a story about a hitman who's hired to rescue a politician's daughter from a human trafficking network, is stark, brutal and mercifully straight to the point, running at a taut 90 minutes. With Phoenix doing his brilliant committed actor thing, You Were Never Really Here is more than your average thriller.
The Handmaiden (2016)Amazon Studios
Even if you've heard good things about The Handmaiden, nothing can prepare you for the insane twists this exquisite South Korean movie takes. Classed as an erotic psychological thriller, The Handmaiden contains explicit scenes you should probably avoid watching with parents around. It all kicks off with a con man wooing a Japanese heiress with the intention of committing her to an asylum once they're married. But his pickpocket partner who poses as her maid strays from the plan. If you've been getting into South Korean films thanks to Parasite, this is a must watch.
The Map of Tiny Perfect Things (2021)Amazon Studios
Following in the footsteps of Palm Springs, The Map of Tiny Perfect things is a rom-com exploring the lives of its protagonists through a time loop. Katheryn Newton and Kyle Allen star as Margaret and Mark, two teens repeating the same day over and over again. Their meet cute involves saving someone from being knocked into a pool by a beach ball. Charming and heartfelt, this is solid if not totally perfect viewing.
The Vast of Night (2019)Amazon Studios
The Vast of Night is a curious indie sci-fi flick from debut director Andrew Patterson that plays with narrative in clever ways. Long, sweeping shots carry us after two young radio workers who investigate an audio frequency they think could be traced to aliens. The distinctive 1950s New Mexico setting, and characters delivering monologues with the smooth intonations of those on radio, all build an eerie atmosphere with satisfying payoff.
Suspiria (2018)Amazon Studios
Luca Guadagnino's horror picture framed in a bleak, art house window won't be for everyone, but for those who go down the rabbit hole of its prestigious Berlin dance school, you're in for a twisted treat. Tilda Swinton is the majestic lead teacher, who mentors young ingenue Dakota Johnson. Be warned: The flexible dancers bring new contortions to body horror. It's a long movie, at over two and a half hours, but if you're into disturbing visuals and a touch of witchcraft, there are a couple of jaw-dropping scenes you'll want to stick around for.
Small Axe (2020)Amazon
A sublime anthology that doesn't drop the ball across its five films. Small Axe is a collection of distinct stories about the lives of West Indian immigrants in London from the '60s to the '80s. They're all directed by Steve McQueen, who's working at his exquisite best (when doesn't he?), crafting stories such as courtroom drama Mangrove, based on the 1971 trial of the Mangrove Nine and starring Black Panther's Letitia Wright. Take a seat and devour this massive achievement.
Sound of Metal (2019)Amazon Studios
Sound of Metal scored a bunch of Oscar nominations, including best picture and best actor for the outstanding Riz Ahmed. (It won in two categories: best sound and best film editing.) He plays Ruben, a punk-metal drummer who unfortunately starts to lose his hearing. As well as struggling with a drug addiction, Ruben is forced to settle into his new life in the deaf community and to learn American Sign Language. The film's stunning sound design immerses you in Ruben's suspenseful story and the experiences of those around him.
Selah and the Spades (2019)Amazon
If you're into the dark-things-happen-at-boarding-schools genre, then Selah and the Spades might be the subject to sign up for. A senior leads a faction called the Spades who sell drugs to other students. But Selah's about to graduate, so must find the right candidate to carry on her legacy. Shot beautifully and guided by debut director Tayarisha Poe's unique lens, this is a taste of even greater things to come.
Honey Boy (2019)Amazon Studios
Shia LaBeouf wrote the screenplay for this autobiographical movie about a child actor and his relationship with his father. We follow Otis, who's traumatized after days on set accompanied by his father, a former rodeo clown. LaBeouf actually plays the character inspired by his father, giving Honey Boy even more psychological layers. This is fascinating, cinematic therapy from a singular perspective.
Cold War (2018)Amazon Studios
Following lovers from different backgrounds and temperaments, Pawel Pawlikowski's historical drama is set in a ravaged, post-World War II Poland. Zula is an ambitious young singer faking a peasant identity, while Wiktor is a jazz musician holding auditions for a state-sponsored folk music ensemble. The politics are handled elegantly and the black-and-white visuals are precise and beautiful. For an 88-minute treat of a sumptuous, passionate, almost impossible love story, look no further than Cold War.
King Lear (2018)Amazon Studios
King Lear is, of course, an adaptation of the Shakespeare play, but two powerful forces help this one stand out: Anthony Hopkins and Black Widow scene stealer Florence Pugh. Not to mention Emma Thompson! This adaptation is set in an alternative universe during the 21st century, where London is under strict military control. Lear is ready to divide his kingdom among his three daughters, but not all of them are accepting. If you're OK with the Shakespearean dialogue, then simply sit back and marvel at Hopkins and a stacked ensemble cast, including Emily Watson, Jim Broadbent and Andrew Scott.
Pass Over (2018)Amazon Studios
Before we jump into this Spike Lee film, note that it's technically a recorded stage play. And yet somehow it captures cinematic magic, thanks in large part to the engaging performances from Jon Michael Hill and Julian Parker. They play two young men dreaming of the promised land from their fixed spot on the sidewalk. Educational, moving, funny and surprising, Pass Over will keep you on your toes more than you think.
Manchester by the Sea (2016)Amazon Studios
Prepare for Amazon's first big, prestigious movie to wallop you in the chest. A broken man who's experienced terrible losses becomes the guardian of his teenage nephew. Lee Chandler's story will hit you with punch after emotional punch, as will the immense performances from the likes of Michelle Williams. Another accomplishment from Kenneth Lonergan, Manchester by the Sea is full-bodied, unforgettable storytelling.
Paterson (2016)Amazon Studios
In trademark Jim Jarmusch style, this low-key indie narrows in on the finer details of regular life with a distinct sense of humor. Spanning one week, Paterson follows a bus driver and poet named Paterson who listens to passengers talking, takes his dog for walks and stops for beers at his local bar. Adam Driver alone makes all that endlessly watchable. Dotted with the idiosyncratic characters living in a New Jersey town, Paterson offers a wise take on life, delving into personal setbacks and the new paths weaved around them.

Standing in a shadowy, littered alley, the young spokesman in a new commercial is clad in a black leather jacket and tight Levis. It is the look usually used to sell jeans or MTV. But what he is pushing is the Boy Scouts.
Talking the kind of hip language that young people understand, the announcer tells boys that in the Scouts they can ''chill out,'' while the spot shows youngsters hiking along a frosty glacier. Then, he suggests that they ''get high'' with the Scouts - as a scene of boys navigating a shaky bridge above a ravine flashes on the screen and the rock-and-roll background music swells.
The commercial could certainly be called ''cool,'' a word that kids do not readily associate with scouting. That is something the Boys Scouts of America is determined to change. 'Scouting as a Product'
The organization is spending more than $1 million in its first paid national television campaign to dispel scouting's old-fashioned image. The commercials are being sponsored by American Airlines and the Phillips Petroleum Company.
''I think of scouting as a product and we've got to get the product into the hands of as many consumers as we can,'' said Lee Sneath, a spokesman for the 79-year-old organization. To do that, commercials for the Scouts are being shown during children's programming, competing with pitches for toys and cereal.
''We're trying to shake boys up and alter the ideas they have about scouting. We want them to say, 'Wow, this is the Scouts!' '' said Jeff Hilton, vice president of marketing for Bonneville Media Communications, the Salt Lake City advertising agency that created the campaign.
That may be a pretty tall order. In focus groups conducted around the country, boys told researchers that they thought that scouting consisted of going to a lot of boring meetings and lacked the adventure that they loved. In short, the boys thought Scouts were nerds. Declining Membership
As a result, membership for the Boy Scout division, which includes boys from ages 10 to 14 years old, has been declining during the last few years. At the same time, membership for all divisions of the Scouts, which includes Cubs Scouts (ages 6 to 10) and Explorer Scouts (ages 14 to 17), has increased 33 percent over the last decade to 4.2 million members.
The Boy Scouts think this is the perfect time to make their pitch. During the next few years, the number of boys ages 10 to 12 will be expanding.
But reaching the right youngsters is not easy. In the past, the Boy Scouts have relied on public service announcements to get their message across. The trouble is, public service announcements are routinely broadcast during the least-watched hours.
''If they show our spots at four o'clock in the morning, we're going to miss our target group,'' Mr. Sneath said. That is why the Boy Scouts chose to buy air time. The organization thinks that the best way to reach its prime audience is to show the commercials during Saturday morning cartoons and children's shows.
Even then, many boys may not pay close attention. Experts in marketing have found that children often watch television while also listening to the radio and doing their homework. Perhaps more important, children can turn a very cynical eye on commercials. ''Most children are very sophisticated about advertising,'' said Arlyn Brenner, the director of Child Research Services, which conducts market research for corporations. ''They've been exposed to a lot of ads that overpromise what products such as toys can deliver, so they can be very hard to persuade.'' Emphasis on Sports
One thing the new campaign may have going for it is its emphasis on sports. The spots show Scouts water-skiing, canoeing and mountain climbing. ''Preteen boys are just learning about becoming men and they love macho activities,'' said Salina Guber, who heads Children's Market Research. ''The more strongly the Boy Scouts identifies itself with sports, the easier it will be to reach these boys.''
If the children are not interested, their parents might be. Some commercials in the campaign are aimed at mothers who, research has shown, have a lot of influence on their young sons. These spots position scouting as a character-building activity. ''Children are subjected to a lot of peer pressure to engage in activities that parents don't like,'' Ms. Brenner said. ''Mothers may see scouting as a safe haven from drugs, sex and other unacceptable behavior.''
