With awards season all wrapped up, everyone’s movie-watching itineraries have been relinquished from the grasp of last year’s prestige releases. That means more time to explore older releases on Netflix or dive into the service’s growing volume of original programming. Josh and Benny Safdie’s “Good Time,” has arrived on the platform just as their latest movie, “Uncut Gems,” is wrapping its theatrical run. Other available films include the first features of acclaimed directors like Hayao Miyazaki, Spike Lee, Sam Raimi and Mati Diop.
As Netflix continues to add to its vast library of original content, its selection of older films remains in flux, with titles coming and going from the platform from month to month. This list collects the best movies that the streaming service has to offer at the moment and will continue to be updated to keep readers in the loop on what is available.
