Netflix Instant: TV and Movie Picks

We're in a bit of a slump in terms of new releases, but there are always great films to check out on Netflix. Now that the Oscar nominations have been announced, we will begin to see some of these films featured, like a documentary on my list today!

This is such a great film that has hold up over the years. Not only is the music wonderful, but it has fun performances and super quotable lines. It's the perfect lazy Saturday film that you don't have to turn your mind off to enjoy because we are all golden gods. 

This film nominated for the Palme d'Or at 2013 Cannes. I've heard great things about this film, especially in reference to Marion Cotillard's performance. It tells the story of an immigrant who becomes a prostitute when she arrives in America. It also stars Joquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner. 

Now that the Oscar nominations are out, several films will slowly begin to pop up on streaming services. This film is nominated for best documentary and is about saving mountain gorillas in Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It's a treacherous area where gorillas are under threat of poaching and their home being destroyed. It's an interesting story about an area which has very limited access.
