February welcomes a brand new slate of on-screen entertainment sure to excite and intrigue, with thrillers of all sorts taking centre stage in this month’s line-up. First on our list is the return of psychological thriller You. Season 4 sees resident stalker-murderer Joe Goldberg moving to London to start anew, this time taking on the identity of professor Jonathan Moore. As always, he vows to leave his past behind and become a better person, only for a new obsession to take hold. What makes this season truly intriguing, however, is the fact that Joe himself also becomes the target of a stalker—turning him into both predator and prey.
Next up: Sharper, a neo-noir thriller from A24 and Apple Original Films. Starring Sebastian Stan and Julianne Moore, the film follows a young man who cons the rich and powerful of New York City in order to attain the wealth he desires. At times polished and at others gritty, this secretive tale comes filled with ambition, greed and jealousy.
