Now Streaming: Frank, The Skeleton Twins, and Tons of Classics on Netflix

by | December 2, 2014 | Comments

This week on streaming video, we’ve got a couple of acclaimed indies and a feelgood culinary drama from Lasse Hallström. On Netflix, there is a treasure trove of newly available films, ranging from a couple of bona fide masterpieces to cult favorites to horror films and even a few James Bond flicks for good measure. Read on for the full list:


Michael Fassbender, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Domhnall Gleeson star in this Certified Fresh dramedy about an artsy rock group whose eccentric leader wears a giant papier-mâché mask.

Apocalypse Now and Apocalypse Now Redux

Francis Ford Coppola reimagined Conrad’s Heart of Darkness for the Vietnam War, and the result is one of cinema’s most hallucinatory depictions of the horrors of war. Coppola’s longer director’s cut is also available this week.

The Hustler

Pool hustlers Paul Newman and Jackie Gleason go mano a mano in this macho masterpiece from underrated director Robert Rossen.

The Truman Show

Jim Carrey stars as the titular everyman who discovers his entire life is a lie, orchestrated as an ongoing reality show by a ratings-hungry producer (Ed Harris).

The Dark Crystal

Jim Henson’s fantasy film, which follows a pair of “Gelflings” on a perilous journey to heal their planet, was decidedly darker than his previous work, but it amassed a cult following nonetheless.

Available now on: Netflix

Saturday Night Fever

It’s got a killer soundtrack, a star-making performance from John Travolta…. and a narrative that’s far grittier and sadder that decades of parodies would suggest.

Available now on: Netflix

Almost Famous

Cameron Crowe’s idealized self-portrait of his time as a young Rolling Stone correspondent is a funny, insightful look at the excitement and chaos surrounding a successful rock band.

Available now on: Netflix

American Beauty

Kevin Spacey, Annette Bening, Thora Birch, Wes Bentley, Mena Suvari, Chris Cooper, and many more star in this Best Picture-winning portrait of suburban ennui and subsumed passions.

Available now on: Netflix

The Omen

It seems like very other kid in the 1970s was possessed by the devil. The creepy and well-acted The Omen raised the stakes: its demonic tot was the honest-to-God spawn of Satan himself.

Available now on: Netflix

You Only Live Twice

One of the last (and weakest) of the Connery Bonds, You Only Live Twice is still a reasonably good time thanks to its scenic locales and ninja battles (you read that right).

Available now on: Netflix


Michael Mann’s biopic of boxer Muhammad Ali earned Will Smith an Oscar nomination, among a number of other accolades.

Available now on: Netflix


Another Jim Henson film that earned a huge following, Labyrinth stars a young Jennifer Connelly and a freakishly flambouyant David Bowie in a tale about a girl trying to save her brother from a devious goblin king.

Available now on: Netflix

Live and Let Die

Roger Moore makes his debut as a lighter, more playful 007 in the eighth installment of the Bond franchise, which features a killer theme song by Paul McCartney and Wings.

Available now on: Netflix

Mission: Impossible

Brian DePalma kicked off the M:I franchise with an explosive first installment full of double crosses and high tech gadgetry.

Available now on: Netflix

Batman Forever

Switching out director Tim Burton for Joel Schumacher and star Michael Keaton for Val Kilmer didn’t do the Batman franchise any favors, but you have to respect the vision it took to cast Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face and Jim Carrey as the Riddler.

Available now on: Netflix

Ever wanted to binge on the saga of Jason Voorhees and Camp Crystal Lake? Netflix has you covered, with the first eight chapters of the franchise available to stream now.
