11 great movies that are newly available to watch at home

Movie theaters are closed for the foreseeable future, so film lovers have to look toward streaming services and “virtual theatrical” releases to see what’s new.

Thankfully, there are a lot of choices. Some of this weekend’s new releases or newly available films are among the best films ever made, or feel newly prescient in our time. Others are already vying to be among the year’s best new movies. There’s a satirical take on history and an unconventional ghost story, a lush melodrama and a documentary about being imprisoned in your own home. There’s even an inspirational documentary about … gerrymandering?

Here are 11 of the best movies, from all kinds of genres, that have become newly available to watch at home during the weekend of April 3 — some for the cost of a virtual ticket, some for a digital-rental fee, and some on subscription-based streaming services.

The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin, from Veep creator Armando Iannucci, tamps down the unrelenting joke delivery of Iannucci’s earlier work (like 2009’s In the Loop). Instead, it serves up a more complex, almost nihilistic rendering of politics as the work of bumbling and weak-minded people who lack any real conviction other than a desire for power and position.

The film (which is entirely in English, with no dubious, fake Russian accents) is based on the true events following the Soviet leader’s death and subsequent scuffle over his succession. Most of its comedy is situational rather than textual, which is to say that it’s funny because it’s true. Once you’ve climbed the ladder to kiss the ring of power, you can’t go back down — but you’ve placed a big target squarely on your forehead.
