The past few years have seen a boom of Spanish-language films not only finding success at the box office but even during awards season. With the exception of a win by Damien Chazelle in 2017, every Oscar for Best Director since 2012 has gone to a Spanish-speaking director.
That being said, “Spanish movies” is a broad term, what with every Spanish-speaking country having their own unique and different cinematic history and traditions. This makes for a wide and exciting variety of movies, from prestige dramas like Roma and Y Tu Mamá Tambien, to some of the best horror and thriller movies of the past decade (sadly, REC is no longer on Netflix), to hilarious comedies and outrageous musicals.
As with the culture of the many Spanish-speaking countries, movies in Spanish present a variety of genres and opportunities to offer something for everyone. That’s why this list has a little for everyone, from horror fans, to those wanting something more serious, to thrilling documentaries. It’s time to share the best Spanish-language movies streaming on Netflix now!
We’ll be updating this list on a monthly basis as new titles become available. In the meantime, be sure to visit these other related articles linked below:
