Houdini miniseries leaves Netflix March 2

The Houdini miniseries starring Adrien Brody will be leaving Netflix on March 2. The streaming network put up the two-part biopic in March 2015. I'm always amused when people tell me they watched "the Netflix Houdini movie" with no idea it was originally shown on HISTORY in 2014.

Netflix streams the edited U.S. broadcast version. The full unedited international version can be found on DVD and Blu-ray. You can read my review HERE.



  1. Thanks for this heads-up, and especially for the link to your 2014 review, which I managed to miss at the time. John, you could be a film critic! (But you already know that!) Such a very well-written and astute review. And it reminded me that there are parts of the mini-series that I would indeed enjoy watching again, and should. My most positive reaction to the film at the time (and it's often my most positive reaction to a lot of films and certain Broadway shows these days) was how stunning the production design is. So I'll go back and enjoy that, and some of the other good things your review made me recall!

    1. Thank you for the kind words, Tom. I might revisit it myself this weekend.
