In the weekly column Extra Credit, Charles Bramesco recommends supplemental viewing for moviegoers whose interests have been piqued by a given week’s big new release.
Everyone’s bustling to complete everything left to do before the end of the year so that we may all nestle before a roaring fireplace, secure in the knowledge that we don’t have to think about work until 2018.

Here’s what to stream after you see Molly’s Game, The Post, Phantom Thread, All the Money in the World, and Downsizing. Read on, and happy holidays:
