'Neo Yokio' (Sep. 22)

Netflix
An anime comedy from Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig? Starring Jaden Smith as a poor little rich kid and Jude Law as his robot butler? Plus Jason Schwartzman and Susan Sarandon? Nothing about Neo Yokio seems to make sense – yet everything about it turns out twice as well as you might expect. Stylish as it is, Netflix's colorful sci-fi excursion doesn't fall for the cult of the quirky – it's genuinely compelling and witty, set in an otherworldly American metropolis in the not-so-distant future of "magistocrats." Smith plays a morose young elite who lives a posh-yet-tedious life of leisurely heartache (not a million miles from the kind of guy Koenig usually likes to write songs about). But it takes a weird turn when he meets a fashion blogger with some cosmic secrets – Tavi Gevinson, take a bow – and discovers his true calling: battling the supernatural forces of evil while uttering battle cries like, "Coco Chanel, may her memory be blessed."
