If you've been waiting to see these films, your excuses have officially run out. (Unless you don't have Netflix.)
Five recent Drafthouse Films titles landed on Netflix Instant today, which means instant gratification is yours. Drafthouse Films has curated a collection of remarkable, essential movies, and while you can always procure them through the website or through the Drafthouse Alliance (and you should really consider joining the Drafthouse Alliance, as it's an incredible value and receiving mail is fun and movie mail even more fun), it's hard to argue the convenience of being able to watch these films with a touch of a button.
So what's on deck?
