Watchlist: What we’re streaming in October | Bakersfield Life

For this month’s watch list, I wanted to highlight a few recent films that I’ve liked from new directors under 40 – with the caveat that this is a fairly common question in the entertainment world and can easily be caught up in hype when a director clicks on the stage bursts.

Given these facts, I’ve also decided to go into a little more detail about these two films than I usually do in this column. I hope this will help you make informed decisions about your streaming choices for October. While you’re at it, also check out some honorable mentions: “Creed” and “Black Panther” by 36-year-old Ryan Coogler and “The Farewell” by 39-year-old Lulu Wang.

‘Plan B’

“Cha Cha Real Smooth”
