Netflix has announced its September line-up, and as has become usual for the streaming giant, they’re focused largely on originals rather than introducing titles they didn’t make. So in terms of non-Netflix titles, you do have some good stuff like 300, American Psycho, Stripes, Superbad, The Return of the King, and The Two Towers, but the draw this month is largely stuff that’s totally original. Here are some of the highlights:
The Spy — NETFLIX ORIGINAL
In the 1960s, Israeli clerk-turned-secret agent Eli Cohen goes deep undercover inside Syria on a perilous, years-long mission to spy for Mossad.
