Wes Anderson’s latest film and a highly stylized sword-and-sandal action sequel lead the pack on streaming video this week; both films are available for purchase and rent. Netflix also added a handful of notable indie titles that got some attention last year, including an unconventional documentary on the fishing industry and a surreal thriller about a man descending into madness at the happiest place on earth. Read on for details:

The Grand Budapest Hotel

Ralph Fiennes stars as Gustave, a concierge at a swanky European hotel with an eccentric guest list. When Gustave’s rich octogenarian paramour bequeaths him an invaluable painting, he draws the ire of her outraged son; chaotic hilarity ensues.

In this sequel to 300, a band of plucky seafaring Spartans, lead by Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) against the mighty Persian navy, headed by Artemisia (Eva Green); as we eventually learn through a series of flashbacks, this fight is partially driven by personal animosity.
