There’s not too much this April in terms of original Netflix content, but we’re still getting a throng of classics like a two-pack of Stanley Kubrick masterpieces, Sunset Boulevard, and The Shawshank RedemptionChaplin is worth a watch simply for Robert Downey Jr.’s virtuoso performance, and Bill Murray’s Christmas classic Scrooged is enjoyable any time of year. Dennis Rodman’s Big Bang in Pyongyang is also worthy of a gander due to the absurdity its subject.

Here’s what else you should be watching this April on Netflix.

Boogie Nights (4/1)

Subscribe to UPROXX

Paul Thomas Anderson has made sprawling dramas a central part of his career, and that all started with his second film, 1997’s Boogie Nights, which chronicles the tail of the ’70s and the beginning of the ’80s through the lens of the porn industry. Drugs, sex, and rock and roll abound in the film, as do acclaimed performances from Mark Wahlberg, Don Cheadle, William H. Macy, Julianne Moore (Oscar-nominated), and Burt Reynolds (also Oscar-nominated).

Best in Show (4/1)

Mockumentaries often fall short when either the subject matter is flat, or when the film can’t find the right balance of reality and satire. Christopher Guest has none of those problems with his movies, including this gem. Part of Guest’s success hinges on his phenomenal cast, which includes stalwarts like Eugene Levy (a frequent co-writer), Parker Posey, Cartherine O’Hara, and Michael McKean. Best in Show is arguably Guest’s best mockumentary — filled with absurd characters, silly conceits, laugh-out-loud set pieces, and more than a little heart.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, season 2 (4/15)

The first season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was — excuse the pun — a breakout success. Much of the humor that made 30 Rock such a comedic breeze is retained in UKS, thanks to creators Tiny Fey and Robert Carlock. Ellie Kemper is the real revelation here, though, balancing Kimmy’s preposterous suppositions about big-city life with sly humor. As Kimmy continues to adapt to her surroundings in season two, look for more stand-out work from Kemper.
