This Month’s Highlights

Available March 1

For the Martin Scorsese fans: Casino

For more than two decades, Scorsese diehards have debated whether his 1995 mobsters-in-Vegas epic is the equal of GoodFellas, or merely an imitation with grislier violence and nicer scenery. What Casino has that GoodFellas doesn’t, apart from the red-hot performance of Sharon Stone, is the larger arc of American corruption as it moved away from mob rule and toward corporations. Whatever your opinion, you may want to fast-forward through Joe Pesci crushing a poor sap’s head in a vice. Available March 1.

Available March 2

If you’re looking for a serious documentary: Flint Town

This original documentary series explores the beleaguered Michigan city of Flint — from its unforgiving poverty to its sky-high murder rate and water crisis — through the eyes of both an overworked police department and a tired-but-determined core of social activists. Even after the highest levels of state government were found to have looked the other way while their own citizens were being poisoned with lead, the public has largely moved on from the very real need at the heart of the city, so hopefully this series will be a wake-up call. Available March 2.

Available March 23

For a fascinating Dutch drama: Layla M.

In this Dutch drama of modern-day extremism, a Muslim girl living in Amsterdam, frustrated and angered by the Islamophobia she faces at school, marries a young radical and moves to Jordan. Once there, this firebrand idealist finds herself drawn ever closer to radicalization. Co-writer and director Mijke de Jong and her gifted, committed lead, Nora El Koussour, deliver more than a didactic cautionary tale; they give Layla’s journey a real purpose and real complications. Netflix picked up streaming rights to this 2016 festival darling, which never got a significant U.S. release. Available March 23.
