As much of a mess as 2016 was (though TBH, 2017 has been considerably worse so far), there was one consistent bright spot throughout the year: Netflix. The streaming service's original content really came into its own last year, with new shows like Stranger Things, Luke Cage, and the Gilmore Girls revival offering a quality escape when reality became too depressing. And as an extra gift, the network saved one of its best surprises for the end of the year when Netflix's The OA premiered on Dec. 16. The sci-fi mystery became an instant sensation, and now that you've no doubt already binged it, you're probably wondering what movies to see if you loved The OA.
The good news is that, unlike Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer, the team behind The OA, Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, have actually already collaborated on a few films, and they are all likely to be enjoyed by anybody who dug The OA. As for the other recommendations, you'll probably want to focus on complex science fiction with a mystery element that will keep you guessing until the end. So with those parameters in mind, you should watch these 13 movies if you loved The OA.
