George Lopez: We’ll Do It for Half

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Sure, George Lopez is in his late 50s, but don’t think excessive overnight peeing will stop him from putting a target on authority’s back in his comedy specials. That remains true in We’ll Do It for Half, where Lopez trashes President Trump for the wall he insisted would be built by and for Mexicans. Lopez also points the humor at himself and his culture (La Raza, baby!), with jokes about Mexicans going trick-or-treating into adulthood and Mexican parents keeping things in the fridge for just a bit too long. Lopez also has a poignant moment commenting on white women calling the police on Black people at a Starbucks, showing us just how much we still have to learn to coexist with each other. —Omar Sanchez

Homemade

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

It’s been difficult to stay productive during quarantine (just ask Spike Lee), but fortunately, enough filmmakers were able to do so for Netflix to pull together an assemblage of shorts created in self-isolation. Collectively titled Homemade, the 17 short films range from eerie tone poems to whimsical romances (between the Queen and the Pope, no less), with work by both A-list Hollywood stars (Kristen Stewart, Maggie Gyllenhaal) and acclaimed filmmakers across the globe, including Paolo Sorrentino, Nadine Labaki, and Ana Lily Amirpour, whose remarkable film Ride It Out features the director biking through a deserted Los Angeles. “I was relieved to be able to make that film,” Amirpour tells EW. “It was a very, I think, healing and healthy exercise, to kind of be forced to look at a very confusing moment, and find some way to understand it.” Maybe it’s time to give that screenplay another shot. —Tyler Aquilina

Welcome to Chechnya

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 10 p.m. on HBO

Acclaimed journalist and Oscar-nominated director David France is transporting audiences to the Russian republic of Chechnya, where a certain group of people actually aren’t all that welcome: the LGBTQ community. But there, a group of activists risks their lives to combat the deadly torture campaign that’s intensified since 2017 against LGBTQ people. Portions of the documentary were filmed with hidden or, inconspicuously, with handheld cameras, and France uses found footage of some of the brutal attacks and honor killings that have resulted in a genocide of sorts. “It’s shocking, and it should be,” EW critic Leah Greenblat writes in her A- review. “But Welcome finds tender, funny moments too — and even, in the end, some kind of hope.” Don’t we all need a little of that right now? —Gerrad Hall
