What’s New on Hulu: June 2016

At the beginning of (and during) every month, Hulu adds new movies and TV shows to its library. We figure you might want to know about them. For more comprehensive coverage of the best titles available on Hulu and elsewhere, check out Vulture’s What to Stream Now hub, which is updated throughout the month.

Good cops, bad cops: Southland (Complete Seasons 1–5)

One of the hidden gems of the golden age of TV, Southland was a gritty cop show that didn’t quite fit on NBC, and then bounced off to TNT, where it continued to be excellent in relative obscurity. Ben McKenzie, O.C. pretty boy, charms, but Regina King, as detective Lydia Adams, runs away with every scene she gets. New York’s Matt Zoller Seitz called her the spine of the show, “an actress for whom no praise is adequate.” Available June 1.

The horror, the horror! Apocalypse Now (1979)

Francis Ford Coppola’s Vietnam War epic arrives on Hulu just in time for that sweltering humid summer heat. The next time you have the time, curl up with more than two hours — or longer, in the case of the extended Apocalypse Now Redux — of some of the worst crimes imaginable. You know, a relaxing way to spend an afternoon. Available June 1.

Horrors worse than a promposal: Carrie (1976)

Noah Baumbach recently completed a documentary on Brian De Palma that’ll come out on June 10, fortuitous timing for this Hulu acquisition. De Palma’s adaptation of Stephen King’s novel is as about as bloody and atavistic as it gets, with lead performances from Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie that match the filmmaking’s intensity. Available June 1.

No big commitment: Casual (Season 2 Premiere)(Hulu)

Hulu’s Casual is one of the many Los Angeles–set cable and streaming dramadies — see Love, Togetherness, You’re the Worst 
— that have come to dominate TV, so your taste for this cup of ennui may vary. Still, the series improved in its back half, and Michaela Watkins always commands the screen. Vincent Kartheiser is joining the show this season — with Pete Campbell, what could ever go wrong? Available June 7.

Here’s to the ladies who lunch: Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me (2013)

Elaine Stritch, a fixture of the Broadway world for decades, goes under Chiemi Karasawa’s microscope in this documentary that, according to New York’s David Edelstein, “offers a penetrating glimpse — sometimes too penetrating — into what it means to eat, drink, and be contrary in the public sphere.” Stritch passed away a year after the doc came out, and this is as close as you’ll get to seeing someone at the summit of her career, contemplating what it means to be there. Available June 24.
