Netflix releases News: In 2013, a film helmed by one of my favorite filmmakers, Sofia Coppola, titled The Bling Ring, starring Emma Watson, was released. The film dramatized the activities of a bunch of celebrity-obsessed youngsters who stole into the lavish Hollywood mansions of stars like Paris Hilton and Orlando Bloom. However, Netflix has recently released The Real Bling Ring: Hollywood Heist, a three-part limited series that offers a documentary take on the same events. It is one of more than a dozen new titles added to Netflix this week.
The first episode of this limited series premiered on Netflix on September 21. It is one of seventeen new shows and movies that will be available on the streaming service between now and September 24. Netflix’s promotional copy for the show promises, “the truth behind the Bling Ring burglaries has never been disclosed… until now.”
Netflix releases are still to come this week
The trailer for the new Bling Ring series continues: Now that they’ve done their time for the Hollywood Hills home-invasion robberies that made national headlines a decade ago, the convicted criminals are speaking out. The docuseries serves as a warning to today’s youth because it depicts what might happen when a celebrity and fame-obsessed society collides with the advent of social media.
It’s also worth keeping an eye out for the second season of the Swedish crime thriller Snabba Cash, which will be added to Netflix this week. For now, just know that this Netflix release (coming on Thursday, September 22) is one of the most undervalued films you’ll come across on the streamer, and I’ll have a separate review for it soon.
The title’s literal translation into English, “easy money,” gives you a hint as to the tone of this drama, which sees a real, ambitious startup entrepreneur, a crime lord, and egomaniacal business giants, among other characters, collide in a compelling and highly bingeable plot.
