Pick a flick

Another season, another reason to watch some totally tubular indie flicks. We’ve found five of the best, recently added and yours to stream right now. Check ‘em out, and add your new favourites to the comments below.


Supremely acted (Michael Caine, Paul Dano, Jane Fonda), this complex tale, held together by a masterful script and killer, Oscar-nominated soundtrack (David Lang, Paloma Faith, Mark Kozelek), is beautiful and confounding—in all the right ways. Stream it on Netflix.

Sleeping Giant

A truly great, Canadian success story. This awesome indie production, which won big at last year’s TIFF, tells the story of three friends over the course of one summer in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Stream it online.

It Follows

An intense and surprisingly intelligent thriller centered on an invisible killer and the interconnected web of unsuspecting youths who, one by one, fall victim to “it”. Stream it on Netflix.

Where to Invade Next?

The latest political expose piece from master truth-seeker Michael Moore, also known as America’s most hated man. The trailer is pretty self explanatory—as you may guess, Moore makes no bones about the shoddy state of US affairs, and really couldn’t care less about those who question his patriotism. Worth the watch. Stream it on Netflix.


The seminal, twelve-years-in-the-making Oscar-winning dramedy that had everybody talking last year, in addition to receiving a Criterion release this fall, is also available on Netflix. If you haven’t already, see what all the fuss was about. Stream it on Netflix.
