The past few years' stress has made the perception of time hard to judge, with 2018 and 2019 sometimes feeling like they each went on for a decade. But they've got nothing on 2020. The coronavirus pandemic makes it seem like it's been 84 years since March. Luckily, this sense of expanded time works in fans' favor one way, in that movies that were released within the past six months ago feel like a lifetime away, meaning it's time for a rewatch. These Netflix movies that came out in 2020 may have receded in memory, but they're worth seeking out and watching again, or for the first time if you missed them back in the spring.
This is not a comprehensive list, mind you. Netflix's output in original content is simply unparalleled. The streamer put out no less than 59 titles — including TV shows and movies — in August alone. Since Jan. 1, 2020, Netflix has released nearly 90 feature-length films of all stripes, from romantic comedies to dramas to documentaries, plus international movies and specials. Out of that giant list, here is a boiled-down selection of 11 films — the best of the best, as it were, so far this year on Netflix.
