Netflix does have a lot of trash, but there's also a lot of great stuff if you're willing to sift through it.
On Netflix now:
Exit Through the Gift Shop- Incredible documentary about street art that takes a really surprising turn.
Santa Sangre- Very weird horror movie from Alejandro Jodorowsky.
Death Race 2000- The original Death Race movie. Campy fun.
God Bless America
The Artist- Last year's best picture winner. Silent, black and white, but really engaging and fun.
True Grit- The Coen Bros one.
Bronson- Awesome movie where Tom hardy plays one of Britain's most violent prison in-mates.
Wet Hot American Summer- Comedy, parody of '80s summer camp movies.
This is Spinal Tap
Mulholland Dr- Extremely weird movie. One of David Lynch's best.
Brick- Nice indie noir movie set in a high school. Really great.
The Fall- The most beautiful movie I've ever seen.
Being John Malkovich
Time Crimes- An interesting Spanish time travel movie.
Dusk Til Dawn
In The Loop- Really smart comedy about a bumbling politician getting Britain involved in the Iraq War.
This Film is Not Yet Rated- Great documentary about the MPAA
Let The Right One In
Miller's Crossing- My favorite Coen Bros movie. '20s gangster drama about Gabriel Byrne being stuck between two warring factions.
Punch Drunk Love
The man Who Fell to Earth
Secret of Kells- Beautiful animated movie from Ireland
Four Lions- Very dark comedy
Dogtooth- Greek movie about parents who isolate their three children and feed them misinformation about the world. Very dark.
