The Woman in the Window

And other new movies this week on streaming

I started the Streamfunc weekly newsletter so I could keep track of the new movies worth watching each week on streaming video. And this one of the healthiest release weeks for streaming movies since I started doing this! The rest of May isn’t looking too shabby either. 20 issues in, what’s most surprising is the consistent amount of new movies being released. I hope you find at least one movie from this list to get you through your week.

Be sure not to sleep on this week’s foreign language section!
