Coming and Going on Netflix in November 2018

Tim Blake Nelson is Buster Scruggs in The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, a film by Joel and Ethan Coen.

Netflix brings the Coen Brothers and Orson Welles into its collection of originals with The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, an anthology frontier comedy from the Coens with Time Blake Nelson and James Franco, and the long-awaited The Other Side of the Wind, Welles’ legendary unfinished final feature completed decades after his death, which debuts along with the documentary They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead.

Also debuting in November is the Netflix Original movie Outlaw King with Chris Pine as Robert the Bruce, the Netflix Original sitcom The Kominsky Method with Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin, the Tony-nominated one-man Broadway show John Leguizamo’s Latin History for Morons, sixth and final season of House of Cards (completed without Kevin Spacey), a new director’s cut of the 2010 Valerie Plame drama Fair Game from Doug Liman, and a small trove of original holiday movies.

Older films in include Sex and the City: The Movie, the original Cloverfield, Children of Men with Clive Owen, Oscar-winning Good Will Hunting, Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and the teen classic Sixteen Candles.
