Kanopy is a platform that allows you to stream movies for free with your library card or university login. It's just like making a trip to the library to borrow DVDs, except without the trip or the DVD part - just the watching.Kanopy, like your library, is full of classics. That's a great thing if you're into older movies, but if you're looking for quality recent titles you have a lot of digging to do. The goal of this list is to gather the excellent recent movies available on Kanopy in one place. 40 of them.All of these movies, like everything else on agoodmovietowatch, are highly-rated by viewers and acclaimed by critics.

This list is agoodmovietowatch's selection of the best European movies streaming on Amazon Prime right now. agoodmovietowatch is a streaming recommendation platform focused on quality titles. Unlike the corporate algorithms of Amazon Prime (and Netflix) that suggest movies based on their corporate agendas or your past viewing, we only recommend movies that were highly-rated by viewers, praised by critics and handpicked by agoodmovietowatch staff.Within this criteria, we have categorized our movies by genre and mood. We also have a section titled "Spotlight", which is dedicated to bringing attention to excellence in under-represented film. This list was born out of Spotlight: European Film.

HBO is so much more than Game of Thrones or whatever show they advertise during Game of Thrones breaks. These are the best shows available to stream on HBO (and made by HBO) that you didn't know about or have been delaying watching. This is to say: do it, friend, each and every one of these is incredible.

Starz, Lionsgate's streaming service, is geared towards movies more than shows. In this list, we count down the best movies on Starz that you didn't know were available there, or maybe didn't know about at all.

The time from when a movie is released and when it's available for streaming is getting shorter with each year. In 2019, some of the best cinema has made its way to either subscription streaming (like Apollo 11 on Hulu), or streaming rental (like the #1, The Following). Below is our list of the best ones. To find where and how to stream each movie, click on its title to be taken to its dedicated page.

The 2010s were the decade of "indie" movies, in reference not to studio types but to a style of storytelling that started in the late 2000s. In comedy-dramas, especially coming-of-age stories, this style can best be described as quirky or whimsical.   Here are the best quirky movies streaming on Netflix right now.

Lists of the best movies of the decade are everywhere but they're often about the same movies, only in a different order. In this list, we count down the movies that are not on those lists, the movies which didn't get their due and actually deserve your attention. Below is the list of the best little-known movies of the 2010s.

Notable TV shows on Netflix Canada are not limited to stuff that's produced by Netflix itself. Luther, Happy Valley and People Just Do Nothing are great examples of this. They're originally from the BBC, but are available to stream in Canada. Same with Flowers, the incredible yet little-known TV show with Olivia Colman, Outlander, and many other picks from this list of the very best little-binged TV shows on Canadian Netflix.

There are so many factors that decide the commercial fate of a movie: the marketing strategy, the budget, the timing of its release, the star sign of the director (who knows?). But when it comes to Netflix, all those factors are reduced to one thing: the algorithms. Here are 10 movies with famous actors that Netflix algorithms are probably hiding from you.

Recently, we started a new section titled "Spotlight: LGBTQ+ Stories". The goal of this category is to showcase quality movies where at least one of the main characters doesn’t identify as heterosexual or cisgender. This includes stories about the LGBTQ+ experience, but not just. A good example is We the Animals, which is about the main characters dealing with their parents' decaying mixed-race relationship while exploring their own sexuality. These stories and experiences, while an integral part of human history, are only recently are starting to be told in mainstream film. Below are five great ones we recommend on Netflix.

The idea to start A24 came to founder Daniel Katz when he was driving on the Italian highway by the same name. From then, the venture went from a fleeting concept to an independent distribution company to one of the biggest stamps of quality a movie can have today.In its young seven years of existence, A24 has seen its movies nominated to the Oscars an impressive 25 times. And if you still don't know who I'm talking about, you might recognize some of their recent releases: Midsommar, Jonah Hill's Mid90s, Lady Bird, Moonlight, Good Time,The Lobster, Ex Machina, The Witch, and Swiss Army Man to name a few. The film distribution and production company has also taken a swing at TV with the HBO hit Euphoria and the fantastic Hulu production Ramy.But below, we count down their top movie releases that are available to stream on Netflix right now. 

European movies are a wonderful path to explore for those who feel like they've seen everything on Netflix. These under-watched titles need to be sought one by one because it seems like Netflix algorithms would almost never put them at the forefront.I know what some of you might be thinking: "wait, subtitles, ew!" - not necessarily. Many European movies are in English, and not just the ones from the UK. Clouds of Sils Maria from this list, for example, is a French movie set in France, but its main language is English and it stars none other than Kristen Stewart.Europe has a long history with film - the French New Wave, Italian Neorealism, and the great Swedish movies of Ingmar Bergman. And what's happening in Europe today is equally as exciting: French thrillers, Scandinavian dramas, Irish comedies... there is just so much to discover. This list has past Oscar winners like The Lives of Others, a past winner of the Berlin Film Festival (On Body and Soul), and other award-sweepers. But you might be asking yourself why you haven't heard of some or all of them. The answer depends on each movie but it's often either bad marketing or that fear of subtitles. Both have nothing to do with the quality of the movies themselves. So, friends, let's try something new. Below are the best European movies on Netflix right now.
