What To Watch On Stan Australia In May 2022
Better Call Saul Season 6
Given there’s not much exciting coming to Stan in May 2022, at least when compared to previous months, the most worthwhile thing to keep streaming is the sixth and final season of Better Call Saul.
With the first few episodes of the long-awaited conclusion to the Breaking Bad prequel show premiering in April 2022, you should already have a good idea of what kind of action we’re in for as Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) makes his full transition into the Saul Goodman we were first introduced to in the original show.
With Rhea Seehorn, Michael Mando, Jonathan Banks and Tony Dalton also starring, along with an expected appearance from Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jessie Pinkman (Aaron Paul), things are looking very promising for Better Call Saul Season 6.
King of Devil’s Island
While May isn’t looking to good for Stan on all fronts, there are a few film festival favourites that are coming to the service that are well worth the watch. The Australian streaming service has always been quite well-connected to more under-the-radar film festival hits in the past, and King of Devil’s Island certainly plays into that reputation.
It’s a cold and unflinching Norwegian film, but the bleak aesthetic and blunt impact of the film could easily be mistaken for something Eastern European. That’s the beauty of this complicated film, which some may find a bit too harrowing as it tracks a violent uprising at a correctional facility for young boys.
Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter
I could have sworn Stan already had the streaming rights for Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter. Although there’s every chance that it was once on Stan years ago but since had been taken off. Well, David Zellner’s 2014 comedy-drama is back and now is a good a time as any to get across it if you haven’t seen the film before.
An inventive story follows young and naive Kumiko (Rinko Kikuchi) from Tokyo to Minnesota after she discovers an old VHS of 1996 Coen Brothers classic Fargo and mistakes it for a documentary. Apologies for the spoilers, but a certain briefcase full of money is burried in the snow at the end of Fargo. Kumiko thinks it’s all real, using the story as some sort of treasure map which takes her on a comedy of errors to the freezing cold of Minnesota where Zellner manages to work in his own love letter to the classic film. It’s an incredibly inventive plot, and it’s just charming enough to keep things flowing. If you’re after a good laugh, this film is a sure-shot.
How Are Things Looking For Stan In May 2022?
Honestly, not the best. Stan has always been a solid streaming service, and the bank of current content is strong enough that the month-to-month additions don’t matter so much. Still, it would have been nice to get more new movies on Stan beyond just a handful of entertaining indies. Things are looking even more grim for the TV section, but at least we have the final season of Better Call Saul rolling out. This is despite Stan putting a lot of marketing behind Gaslit, a new political drama starring Julia Roberts in the lead as the cast go behind the Watergate scandal.
There are only a small few documentaries coming to Stan in May 2022, which is odd seeing as the schedule is usually packed with them. David Attenborough’s docuseries is going to be easy bait for nature doco enthusiasts, but the real catch here is your boy Louis Theroux throwing his hat into the very complex world of Tiger King.
It’s not much, but the new additions should be just enough to keep justifying that Stan subscription price.
