10. FILM: My Own Man
It’s been a busy week for Netflix. In addition to its original series House of Cards and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, the streaming service is debuting an original documentary: My Own Man. Produced by Edward Norton, the film follows the journey of its director, David Sampliner (Dirty Work), as he sets out to teach himself how to be “masculine” on the eve of his son’s birth (see: Russell Tovey). As he hunts, embarks on a “warrior weekend,” and tries to change his voice to fit a manlier vocal pattern, Sampliner discovers surprising aspects of the ever-changing role of a man and a father in 21st-century America, which bring up revelations from his relationship with his own father. My Own Man premieres today on Netflix. Watch the trailer below. — Daniel Reynolds

In Kitty Genovese: The Murder, The Bystanders, The Crime That Changed America, Kevin Cook tells the story of a true crime that captured America’s attention. A nominee for the 2015 Edgar Award in Best Fact Crime, this book counters the accepted wisdom that Kitty's neighbors could have intervened but refused to do so as the 27-year-old was being stabbed to death just outside her apartment in Queens, N.Y., one night in 1964. He also chronicles the lives of Kitty and her partner, Mary Ann Zielonko, in a closeted era. Available on Amazon.com.  — Yezmin Villarreal
