The seemingly endless options on Netflix can make endless browsing easier without having to settle for something to watch. Even Netflix makes it difficult to crawl, add, and remove new content every month to keep your selection up to date.

The good news is that we’ve now compiled a list of the best movies on Netflix. Lively or live, drama, or comedy, whatever you are looking for, there is something for you on this list. And even if you’re not looking for something specific, any movie is worth it.

1- Sweetheart

The great Kiersey Clemons plays Jennifer, a woman who washes up on a desert island after a shipwreck, killing her friend and sending the other passengers into the water.

She is alone, fighting the elements and discovering how to survive. And then she finds out that she is not alone. A mix of monster movie plot points, genre commentary, and a survivor story, it’s a great independent horror gem that deserves a wider audience. Check it out before your best friend tells you.

2- Walking Out

Josh Wiggins plays David, a young man on the hunt in the freezing desert with his father Cal (Matt Bomer), from whom he is separated and cannot be any different.

While the two fight to bond as father and son, a violent incident leads to Cal’s injury, meaning David will have to grow up quickly. Some intergenerational and lifestyle differences between the two men seem a bit overwhelmed, but the film is visually shocking, it really gives a sense of danger in their situation. If you like survival movies and haven’t seen them, watch it with your dad.

3- Amanda Knox

Rod Blackhurst and Brian McGinn’s documentary about one of the most famous murder cases of the past decade has been relatively lost in Netflix’s full catalog of true crime stories, with series like Making a Murderer and The Keepers Making the Most of It. promotion and attention.

Trust us so that any crime documentary fan will take the time to investigate this 2016 film about the investigation into the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher. The British student was brutally murdered in her own apartment in Perugia, Italy, at the age of 21.

and authorities prosecuted Kercher’s roommate, Amanda Knox, and her friend, Raffaele Sollecito, almost immediately, despite conflicting evidence. The documentary is a fascinating look at the number of other factors, beyond the evidence, that can influence an investigation, including public pressure and suspect perception.

4- Blue Jay

On paper, this delicate character drama probably looks like a movie you’ve seen dozens of times before (or hundreds if you go to Sundance). A relatively lost young man returns home amid an emotional crisis and meets an old girlfriend.

In this case, the man is played by Mark Duplass, who does one of the best jobs of his career dramatically, and the ex-girlfriend is played by the always cool Sarah Paulson.

Like Richard Linklater’s earlier films, Blue Jay has a delicate and simple structure based almost exclusively on the dialogue that allows two artists to build characters entirely in three dimensions, and Duplass and Paulson are fully up to the task.

5- The Endless

Netflix

Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead make genre films that work more from recognizable human emotions than from higher concepts. The directors presented themselves here like a bunch of brothers who had escaped a cult years earlier, but the questions sent them back to the congregation from which they had fled.

There they find something inexplicable, a break in reality in which people are sent on a loop and constantly experience the same events. How can we free ourselves from our own destructive patterns? It’s a bold and brilliant movie, one of the best genre deals for any streaming service.

6- Enemy

Netflix

Denis Villeneuve has become a household name, at least on Film Twitter, thanks to the tremendous artistic success of Arrival and Blade Runner 2049. You can use Netflix to see where his career really started with the first films, including the award-winning Fires.

and this fascinating 2013 thinking game. Based on José Saramago’s excellent novel The Double in 2002, largely inspired by Franz Kafka, Enemy Jake plays Gyllenhaal as a regular college professor who sees an actor in a movie that looks just like that.

He becomes obsessed with his doppelganger and, well, things are getting weirder in a way that would be cruel to spoil. It all ends with a climax and ending that allows interpretation rather than simple solutions to the madness that preceded it. You may not understand this movie, but you will not forget it.

7- Girl on the Third Floor

If you miss the days of scary terror like us, discover in this curve 2019 a man who remodels a house that makes very bad decisions and discovers more than mold hidden in the walls.

Fighter C.M. Punk is legitimately excellent as a leader and channels the energy of “Bruce Campbell in Evil Dead”. He embodies Don Koch, a man who should have thought about changing his personality before breaking down the walls of a haunted house.

8- The Little Hours

The Little Hours

Jeff Baena’s success on Sundance is one of the rarest and rarest comedies you can find on Netflix. Here’s everything you really need to know: Aubrey Plaza is a blasphemous nun. Do you need a little more?

Believe it or not, this very modern comedy is based on stories from The Decameron published in the 14th century. Plaza is joined by Alison Brie, Dave Franco, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, and Fred Armisen in a ridiculous and obscene movie about a gardener (played by Franco) who is trapped in a convent with three crazy nuns (Plaza, Brie, and Kate Micucci).

It reminds Mel Brooks that it combines classic story structures with modern comic sensibilities. If you like movies like World History Part 1, you must see this inspired madness.

9- Mohawk

Ted Geoghegan continues the career of an unpredictable genre filmmaker by taking a sharp turn from his excellent We Are Still Here in this period of horror action film set in the early 19th century, just after the end of the War from 1812

Ted Geoghegan continues the career of an unpredictable genre filmmaker by taking a sharp turn from his excellent We Are Still Here in this period of horror action film set in the early 19th century, just after the end of the War from 1812.

So few filmmakers are willing to consider this country’s relationship with its indigenous peoples, and even fewer to turn this story into a genre story. Kaniehtiio Horn plays a Mohawk woman named Oak, caught between her people and the British soldiers who murder them.

She has two lovers, a Mohawk warrior, and a British soldier; the first ignite the drama when he sets fire to an American camp. Surviving soldiers hunt for Oak and its inhabitants as Mohawk turns into a chase movie, anchored by a physical performance of Horn and the captivating villain Ezra Buzzington.

10- The One I Love

Charlie McDowell made this brilliant sci-fi gem, with two of the best performances by Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss
netflix

Charlie McDowell made this brilliant sci-fi gem, with two of the best performances by Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss. The two play a couple whose therapist (Ted Danson) offers to retire to find themselves as partners.

From the start, something seems strange in the retreat, but the pair discover something straight from The Twilight Zone that we wouldn’t dare spoil here. If you don’t know the twist yet, make it as cool as possible.

Trust us on this: It’s a smart, well-played character that combines relationship drama with science fiction concepts in a way that makes both genres feel fresh again.

11- Outside In

Constant Lynn Shelton co-wrote this drama with star Jay Duplass and marks the best work yet
netflix

Constant Lynn Shelton co-wrote this drama with star Jay Duplass and marks the best work yet. The transparent star plays Chris, a 38-year-old man who has just been released from prison after spending more than half his life behind bars.

Of course, he’s even closer to development than 18 than 38, which is reflected in a quick attachment to his former high school teacher Carol, who supported him during his imprisonment and is played by the always cool Edie Falco.

It is a nuanced and elegant piece of character that represents two people with very different life experiences that are attracted to each other. When people say they don’t make adult dramas like they used to, she shows that movie.

12- Porto

The beautiful Anton Yelchin built a career that seemed to last decades when he died at a young age

The beautiful Anton Yelchin built a career that seemed to last decades when he died at a young age. His death gives him his part in one of his latest moving films, although Porto would be a dramatic drama even if he were still with us.

Gabe Klinger’s dream movie stars Yelchin and Lucie Lucas as a couple who live in the titular Portuguese city, but with very different backgrounds. Yes, it’s another romantic drama, but this is infused with a strange sense of belonging and the honesty that young talented actors bring. The unforgettable result is more of a memory than a traditional story.

netflix

Support the Girls by Andrew Bujalski got a lot of attention in 2018, he even won some prizes for his great central performance at Regina Hall. If you liked it, check out Bujalski’s latest movie, another one about a very unique work environment.

Short-tempered Kevin Corrigan plays Danny, one of those schlubs who suddenly finds himself rich and has no idea what to do with his money or his time. Why not a personal trainer?

This decision brings him to the life of a local gym owner named Trevor (Guy Pearce) and his best employee, Kat (Cobie Smulders). The star of How I Met Your Mother is great here in another Bujalski movie that always talks about the character and never exactly what you expect.

14- Roll Red Roll

In August 2012, a teenage girl from Steubenville, Ohio was raped and then photographed by a group of teenagers

In August 2012, a teenage girl from Steubenville, Ohio was raped and then photographed by a group of teenagers. The case was slowly revealed, first through peer-reviewed social media posts and then through investigative journalism by bloggers.

Nancy Schwartzman’s documentary itself investigates the case not so much as its impact on a community. It turned out that some criminals were part of the school’s hugely popular local football team, a circumstance that affected the way the case was investigated and reported to the public. There are many documents about crime on Netflix, but few analyze the impact of crime on an entire city as she tries to do it.

15- Shadow

If you're looking for an action movie on Netflix that you may not have seen, look no further than the latest movie from Zhang Yimou
Netflix

If you’re looking for an action movie on Netflix that you may not have seen, look no further than the latest movie from Zhang Yimou, a movie that barely opened in the United States, but nearly won $ 100 million in the rest of the world.

The director of Hero and House of the Flying Daggers returns to vintage action with this tale of belligerent kingdoms. This is a film you will appreciate not so much for its narrative but also for its bold visual style, which transforms action choreography into something closer to ballet or performance art. It is fascinating and beautiful.

16- Starred Up

Before David Mackenzie made Hell or High Water and for Jackless of Godless, the two worked together in this daring drama
Netflix

Before David Mackenzie made Hell or High Water and for Jackless of Godless, the two worked together in this daring drama; a revolutionary film about a father and his son defining their relationship behind bars.

The title refers to what happens when a juvenile delinquent ages in the system and moves from a facility for children to a facility for violent adults. In this case, the person doing it moves to prison with his sociopathic father, played by Ben Mendelsohn. It is a dark and fascinating character study.

17- Super Dark Times

Owen Campbell and Charlie Tahan are the stars of this little-known 2017 thriller about a horrific accident and what it does to two of the children involved.
Netflix

Owen Campbell and Charlie Tahan are the stars of this little-known 2017 thriller about a horrific accident and what it does to two of the children involved. Four teens are stupid when they find a katana in the belongings of one of the boys’ siblings.

They do what the kids do, they take it to the park and they cut the boxes of milk; but it gets tragic when a fight breaks out and someone gets cut. A hidden body and intense guilt transform what begins as a transition into adulthood into something much darker. It’s an intelligent and engaging story with a great twist for Tahan as a child that will change forever through what happened in this park.

18- We the Animals

Jeremiah Zagar's adaptation of Justin Torres' blockbuster book was a major player in the 2019 Independent Spirit Awards and is the kind of movie that can really help a streaming service like Netflix bring a wider audience
Netflix

Jeremiah Zagar’s adaptation of Justin Torres’ blockbuster book was a major player in the 2019 Independent Spirit Awards and is the kind of movie that can really help a streaming service like Netflix bring a wider audience. Unfortunately; this is also the kind of movie you might miss on a crowded streaming service if you don’t understand it.

It is a story about adolescence, a difficult education that is shown through the eyes of three brothers, although our point of view is mainly that of Jonas, who is forced to face a violent and often distant father and to discover his own sexuality.

It is both poetic and authentic, which is not an easy task for a filmmaker. Zagar uses a gritty 16mm focus to blend the film into something tangible, while sometimes seeming magical.

19- Tramps

This is a perfect example of a movie that really feels buried by Netflix. If a studio had released this charming romantic comedy in the cinema, even in big cities, people would have noticed
Netflix

This is a perfect example of a movie that really feels buried by Netflix. If a studio had released this charming romantic comedy in the cinema, even in big cities, people would have noticed. It’s smart, fun, and includes some gorgeous young performances.

But he hid on Netflix in April 2017 and no one is talking about it. Start your search and discover the story of Danny (Callum Turner) and Ellie (Grace Van Patten); two hardworking New Yorkers gathered around a mysterious suitcase.

Even if the story gets a little ridiculous, the infectious energy of the two main characters makes this movie buzz; which is essentially a movie of capers.

Chicagoan Pat Healy has become one of the most consistent actors of his generation, with big movies (The Post) and little ones (Cheap Thrills)
Netflix

Chicagoan Pat Healy has become one of the most consistent actors of his generation; with big movies (The Post) and little ones (Cheap Thrills). He worked constantly and used this capital to direct his first feature film, an ingenious comedy based on himself and Orange Is the New Black, Taylor Schilling.

Ray (Healy) has a unique company that can be used for some kind of very intense intervention: people ask Ray to kidnap them. (For example, she runs off with a guy who regularly cheats on her food to force him to get in shape.)

But after Anna (Schilling) hires Ray, she starts laying down the rules and, well, things get really weird. It’s kind of a damn thriller if there is such a thing. Well, there are now.
