Streaming Great Movies on Netflix

Net­flix jolt­ed its com­peti­tors last month when it announced a new plan. Instead of receiv­ing DVDs by mail, cus­tomers can now opt for a $7.99 plan that lets them watch an unlim­it­ed num­ber of movies online, using their tele­vi­sion, com­put­er, iPad, or smart­phone. Not so long ago, Net­flix’s cat­a­logue of stream­able films was rather thin. But nowa­days it runs deep­er, and you can watch online a bevy of impor­tant cin­e­mat­ic works. Hav­ing struck a deal with Cri­te­ri­on (among oth­ers), Net­flix now streams many land­mark films, includ­ing clas­sic films by Felli­ni, Kuro­sawa, Truf­faut, and Bergman, and more con­tem­po­rary films by Steven Soder­bergh, Bri­an De Pal­ma, and Wim Wen­ders. You can see a full list of stream­able Cri­te­ri­on films right here. Sort through the films, find the ones you like, click the cor­re­spond­ing Net­flix link, and then add them to your queue.

If you don’t have a Net­flix sub­scrip­tion, you can always sign up for Net­flix’s one month Free Tri­al.

And don’t for­get the 250+ qual­i­ty films now list­ed in our col­lec­tion of Free Movies Online.
