Netflix Instant "Gems" Vol. 16


Lots and lots of Bond flicks this week. A good mix. One of my favorites, ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE popped up among them. Also some fun Roger Moore stuff as well as the reprehensibly fun LICENSE TO KILL. Some cool prestige Criterion titles(LE DOULOS being my favorite) as well as some excellent IFC fare. Also one of my all-time top 5 favorites(recently featured in my cinematic alphabet), Coppola's THE CONVERSATION showed up again too. I also have to highlight Jeff Lipsky's FLANNEL PAJAMAS from 2006 as well. Well worth checking out.

Mr. P: Thanks for your hard work digging these up! I'm always adding more flicks to my N-flix list after one of these posts.
Have a good weekend!

Thank you Ivan! I really get very excited when they post new stuff in a big batch over at Netflix. Always fun to sift through! Glad the lists are useful!

I can't believe I finally get to see at Long Last Love. I heard it is an amazing mess! I'm starting it right now. I haven't even finished your post yet. You are the best!

The entire run of Twin Peaks is also available to stream now for anyone that hasn't already seen it. And while it's great to see the Bonds show up on streaming, according to instantwatcher.com they're only available until June 17. So watch em fast!

Thanks for this fantastic list. There's quite a few gems, there that I am interested in, chief among them THE PASSION OF DARKLY NOON. Saw this film on TV late at night years ago and was really taken with it. So stoked that this has surfaced even only in pan and scan. A fascinating film.

KC-It really is a mess of a film, but I still find it watchable. Curious what you think of it.

Chuck-Thanks for the heads up on TWIN PEAKS! I'll add to the list! My wife and I have been talking about rewatching for years.

JD-Thanks man! Yeah I've still not seen DARKLY NOON, even though I own it on VHS. Have been fascinated with Ridley since THE REFLECTIN SKIN which really needs a dvd release!
