I am self-proclaimed Netflix guru; a film enthusiast who finds beauty in every film. Consequently, I often find myself lurking in the depths of Netflix, and I usually end up watching the most random films they have–good and “bad”. From Trainspotting to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Netflix does have some hidden gems and classics. This new age Blockbuster has a constant influx of new content, but unfortunately, as quick as they come–they go. So here’s a short list comprised of some of my favorite films and tv shows the abyss called “Netflix” currently has to offer.
