The latest batch of new and notable movies now available for streaming seem to be centered on crimes, or acts of violence or trespass, yet each of these 12 films explore the subject in unique and distinctive ways.
One director uses violence to elicit fear in one movie and heartbreak in another. Revenge is a motivating factor in at least three of this week's films: One achieves it through music and singing, another focuses on teamwork, and a third explores a lone man finding his purpose.
Violence can be at the core of comedy as well, from a gangster traveling to Hollywood and putting his skills to use in the movie industry, to a golf course groundskeeper resorting to drastic measures to deal with a gopher.
Key to all of these films is that we actually care what happens to the people in them.
