Prime Video is closing out 2023 with a wide array of films from sequels to foreign language favorites, thought-provoking documentaries, and holiday comedies to help you ring in the New Year. Horror fans can travel across the ocean during Spooky Season without ever leaving home with a film from the Phillippines, In My Mother’s Skin. Silver Dollar Road explores the lopsided racial dynamic and the fight for generational wealth and dignity. Sayen: Desert Road picks up where eco-thriller Sayan left off as allies conspire to take down the evil multi-corporation Actaeon before it destroys Chile. November brings us a Tyler Perry documentary, Maxine’s Baby: The Tyler Perry Story, and Barry Koeghan and  Jacob Elordi live the life of decadent excess in the psychological thriller, Saltburn. December sees the return of Eddie Murphy in Candy Cane Lane, the story of a man who accidentally brings the chaos of the 12 Days of Christmas to life.

From Academy-Award Nominee Raoul Peck, Silver Dollar Road follows the story of the Reels family as told by the matriarch Mamie Reels Ellison and her niece Kim Renee Duhon, two fierce and clear-eyed women bending to safeguard valiantly their ancestors' land and their brothers and uncles Melvin and Licurtis, who were wrongfully imprisoned for eight years - the longest sentence for civil contempt in North Carolina history.

This documentary, based on the 2019 ProPublica article, highlights the covert ways the legal system has been exploited to keep Black land ownership fragile and the racial wealth gap growing.

Movie Reelist Contributor: MontiLee Stormer
MontiLee Stormer is a writer of horror, dark and urban fantasy. She’s also is a troublemaker, concocting acts of mayhem and despair for her own selfish pleasure. An avid movie watcher, she prefers horror but will see just about anything if you're buying. Poltergeist (1982) is her favorite movie and she actively hates The Shining (1980) due to its racism, misogyny, the butchering of the source material. She could host a TEDtalk on this single subject. Writing about herself in the third person is just a bonus.
