Top picks

LuLaRich: Season 1 (September 10)

LuLaRoe was never a pyramid scheme: that term is so very 1980s. No, hun, it’s an MLM (‘multi-level marketing’) business, the trendy new name for a scam that ropes in rubes who gotta rope in other rubes to make back the original cost of their en-rope-ening, in this case by selling virally popular leggings and activewear. You might have even bought a pair without realising you were buying into a global get-rich-quick empire.

This Prime Video exclusive bills itself not as true crime (despite the hordes of lonely wannabe girlbosses who did indeed get criminally swindled out of millions of dollars), but ‘true comedy’, mining the deception and delusion of a social media con for humour. But who will get the last laugh, considering that the company’s chirpy founders are amongst the talking heads included here? LuLaRich comes from the documentarians behind Fyre Fraud, so the four-part investigation will hopefully hold those in power accountable for “using the cheap language of feminism” to rake in unethical dough.

The Voyeurs (September 10)

It’s been pretty quiet for erotic thrillers lately—maybe people just don’t have sex and kill each other like they used to. Sydney Sweeney and Justice Smith are changing all that in this Montreal-set spine-chiller. As its lead actors are best known for Euphoria and Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, you can probably expect The Voyeurs to be more of a saucy, streamable diversion rather than a truly disturbing video nasty in the vein of De Palma. Then again, it does boast a now-rare ‘R’ rating…

Sweeney and Smith play a curious young couple who accidentally witness their neighbours (Natasha Liu Bordizzo and Ben Hardy) boinking in full view of the street. Their titillation turns ethically dicey, however, when they befriend the other pair, becoming ever closer and more obsessed. And violent. Count on some sexy surveillance action before somebody gets hurt in the film’s final act.

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie (September 17)

The UK’s 16-year-old drag debutante has had a bit of a journey before landing here in the Haus of Amazon Prime. From the true story of teen-turned-drag-performer Fifi La True featured in a BBC documentary, to the West End production it inspired, and now into this “courageous, outrageous” musical movie, her heel-clad feet must be tired. Audiences that loved Billy Elliot for its same exuberant, musical takedown of Britain’s repressive “stiff upper lip” mentality should love this tale of adolescent self-expression and liberation.

Newcomer Max Harwood stars as wannabe Jamie, who feels stranded amongst his year eleven class of students who all seem to know what they’re doing with their lives. A little support from drag legend Loco Chanel (the always-fierce Richard E. Grant) gets Jamie—and his drag alter-ego Mimi Me—on stage, and maybe even in a dress at the uptight school’s prom.
