The 20 Best Netflix Original Movies of 2023
From 'The Killer' to 'May December,' the streamer closed the year on a stellar—and possibly awards-worthy—note. Some people believe that movies are best seen on the silver screen—you know, squished in uncomfortable chairs, seated beside strangers, with nothing but an overpriced bag of popcorn to ease the pain. It might be an unpopular opinion, but I disagree. If you really want the full experience, try watching Nicole Kidman's iconic AMC speech on YouTube before queuing up a movie. If you're also a theater-averse individual, I'm willing to bet that your first stop on a weekday night is Netflix. And you know what? It's been a pretty stellar year in film for the streamer. With the help of stars such as Myha’la Herrold, Julianne Moore, and Bradley Cooper, and more, Netflix closed the year on a stellar—and possibly awards-worthy—note. Looking for a lighthearted comedy? Try Sandman’s You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah. Want a thriller? The Killer is waiting for you. Is a drama more your speed? Look no further than Maestro and American Symphony. Below, we’ve rounded up the 20 best Netflix original movies of 2023. Enjoy, folks.
