November sees everything from Iranian horror to dystopian thrillers hit Amazon Prime UK.

As always, a comprehensive list of every new addition can be found at the end of this post, but here are the most highlights.

Labyrinth of Lies

What is it? The German submission for Best Foreign Language Film at 2015’s Oscars, Labyrinth of Lies tells the true story of an idealistic public prosecutor who takes an interest in the cases of former Auschwitz camp commanders, many of them now teaching in schools.

Red Oaks (Season Two)

What is it? Expect nostalgic, 1980s set coming-of-age laughs with this entertaining cult-favourite-show-in-waiting, which follows a young student who works at an exclusive country club during the summer.

Our Kind of Traitor

What is it? This adaptation of the John le Carre novel of the same name stars Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris as a couple lured into a Russian oligarch’s plans to defect. They soon become positioned between the Russian Mafia and the British Secret Service. An impressive supporting cast includes Stellan Skarsgård and Damian Lewis.

The Grand Tour

What is it? Ostracised from the BBC after that infamous fracas, Clarkson, Hammond and May have had their budget increased (each episode cost a reported $4.5 million), so expect the outrageous stunts and globe-trotting capers to get even more preposterous.

High-Rise

What is it? A dystopian satire from the unique mind of J.G. Ballard – who wrote the original novel – Tom Hiddleston stars as the resident of a luxury tower block which descends into madness and anarchy. It’s stylish and gloriously off-the-wall.

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night

What is it? Director Ana Lily Aminpour has herself described this film as “the first Iranian vampire spaghetti western”, and it’d be notable for that fact alone if it wasn’t also such an engrossing horror.
