What movies and series to watch or watch again on Netflix tonight?
A successful movie: Logan Lucky
The summary of the film
Jimmy Logan is a former local football star fallen. Since an injury and a divorce, he has been doing odd jobs. After another firing, he decides, with his brother Clyde, to stage the heist of the century during a car race. For this they will turn to Joe Bang, the best thief in the country.
Logan Lucky signs the return of director Steven Soderbergh to the cinema, to our greatest pleasure. Following the launch of Side Effects in 2013, the American declared that he no longer wanted to release a feature film, criticizing in particular the treatment inflicted on directors in the field.
With more than twenty films to his credit (Erin Brockovich, Magic Mike …), he had enough to leave with his head held high. Yet just three years after the announcement of his early retirement, Soderbergh is back in the spotlight. He has since released three films (including High Flying Bird and The Laundromat: The Case of the Panama Papers, also available on Netflix).
So Logan Lucky is a heist movie, which Soderbergh does better. Here, the director offers us an anti-glamor version of the Ocean trilogy (Ocean Eleven, Ocean Twelve and Ocean Thirteen). Leave the class of Brad Pitt and George Clooney who want to rob a casino in Las Vegas, welcome to rural North Carolina.
Here, the heist is planned during a popular car race, away from the glitter. In a way, the film wants to restore the image of the “proletarians” who redouble their ingenuity to circumvent the system, even if it means breaking the law.
In the cast of this supercharged comedy: Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Daniel Craig dyed blonde for the occasion, Riley Keough, Hilary Swank, Katie Holmes … In short, beautiful people who connect with sometimes funny phrases and often grotesque situations. Paced, carefully produced, moving, Logan Lucky is incredibly efficient and confirms all the good we think of Steven Soderbergh.

A little known series: Gypsy
The series summary
Jean Halloway is bored. His life as a tidy psychologist, his opulent suburban home, his daily routine, and all his petty bourgeois concerns no longer suit him. To break the monotony of his existence, he decides to spice up his life and begins a dangerous game.
Under the pseudonym “Diane Hart”, she intrudes on the lives of her patients and pushes vice until she befriends her loved ones. What he hadn’t planned on was falling madly in love with Sidney Pierce, the highly manipulative ex-girlfriend of one of his patients.
Goodbye Gypsy, little angel who left too early … After only one season, the series was canceled, no doubt due to lack of public. Too bad, really, it is a disaster and therefore its full potential will remain unexplored. For our part, we can only advise you to watch all ten episodes of the show.
Gypsy is mostly psychological, all subtle and unspoken. This is his greatest quality, to immerse ourselves in the head and daily life of Jean Halloway, when he recounts the infernal spiral in which he is embarking.
Identity, sexuality, depression, boredom, the content mixes many topics, without falling into easy topics. The script is clever and, it’s weird enough to say, but we’d almost enjoy seeing the perfect little life of the anti-heroine turned upside down. It must be said that he looked for it. In any case, Naomi Watts is excellent in her role and proves once again that she is a safe bet in Hollywood.
