    It's official. Robert Eggers' followup to his memorable, statement-making début horror The Witch from 2015, is the movie to beat this year for me.

Led by a classic Eddie Murphy performance and further bolstered by a terrific ensemble, this just might be the best thing Netflix has on offer at this moment. A true joy to behold, with only a minor gripe or two about pacing, particularly around the midsection.
