Netflix’s next big movie is a crime thriller with a 98% on Rotten Tomatoes

Netflix’s latest movie deal is a juicy one for him as well as for us: the streamer spent $20 million to acquire the streaming rights Touch man, the latest film from the great director Richard Linklater. Not to be confused with the 2007 game adaptation Hitmanthe 2023 film was one of the most talked about films at the Venice Film Festival and has already racked up a string of rave reviews, currently sitting at 98% positive on Rotten Tomatoes, and seems likely to enter the pantheon of the best Netflix films. .

Touch man is the story of schoolteacher Gary Johnson, whose side business is posing as a hit man for the New Orleans Police Department to entrap people who try to hire him. The mild-mannered teacher becomes a completely different character when he cons the people who want him to kill their colleagues or colleagues, but when he falls in love with a woman who wants him to kill her partner, things get very messy indeed.
