Then you probably should not watch their films.

This one's not bad. Based on a true story. IMO it's worth seeing at least once.

A small sample over just the last two years of my membership:

The Sound of My Voice
Citizen X
Their Eyes Were Watching God
Desert Flower
The Weight of Water
The Notorious Bettie Page
A Better Life
Being Flynn
The Magdalene Sisters
There Be Dragons
My Week with Marilyn
Clay Pigeons
The Last Station
Birdie
Shine
Snow Cake
Once Were Warriors
An Angel at My Table
Tipping the Velvet
The Station Agent
Revolutionary Road
Bright Star
The only one of these many titles available currently is There Be Dragons - loved it, esp. with the femme fatale being a Hungarian woman named Ildiko.

I'll have to keep checking on these to see when Netflix cycles them back in. I really wanted to see the one with the little person.

Just watched In Her Skin - very gripping, and surprisingly accurate depiction of this true-life horror story. I actually looked up the details of this crime and surprisingly the murderess is up for parole next month. Thanks for recommending this.

I will see if Archer is currently available - hope some more replies with new titles surface this weekend.

There, I said it!
I can't stand Kubrick either. I find his movies drawn out and grating to my nerves and not necessarily because they explore taboo subjects.

Well, it was just so powerful, so gripping, it got me thinking - how many more movies out there that, were it not for Netflix, we'd hardly hear about them? Any other titles of obscure films streaming on Netflix that anyone highly recommends?

Glad you agree about In Her Skin. Just found another BBC series Wire In the Blood (23 episodes)
about a clinical psychologist who works with a head detective & is able to get into the minds of
serial killers. It ran from 2002-2008.

Did you dislike "The Shining" by Kubrick?

I didn't dislike it as much as his other movies. It was still too drawn out for my liking.
