The Best Movies New to Every Major Streaming Platform in January 2020

Netflix may get most of the attention, but it’s hardly a one-stop shop for cinephiles who are looking to stream essential classic and contemporary films. Each of the prominent streaming platforms caters to its own niche of film obsessives.

“The Swimmer” (Frank Perry, 1968)

Truly one of the strangest and most beguiling films ever released by a major studio, Frank Perry’s “The Swimmer” unfolds like the hallucinatory fever dream that Don Draper probably had on his deathbed. Set in a rich
