Here’s What’s Expiring on Netflix in November

     October 26, 2015


Whereas a handful of major shows are being added to Netflix in the coming month, not many are leaving. Rather, a variety of hugely influential, insightful, and magnificent films are being chopped from the roster, to make room for a handful of new ones. Most of them expire on the first of the month, making Halloween night your last night to watch masterworks like Joel and Ethan Coen’s Fargo, Joseph L. Mankiewicz‘s stunning Cleopatra, The Blues Brothers, David O. Russell‘s Three Kings, Martin Scorsese‘s The Last Waltz, Wes Craven‘s Scream, and Zhang Yimou‘s intoxicating House of Flying Daggers, none of which would necessarily count as a good Halloween movie. For that, you could go for Funny Games, the infamously sadistic satire from Michael Haneke, the controversial Austrian helmer behind Cache, The White Ribbon, and Amore, or any of the Saw movies…if you must. Beyond that, the excellent, enigmatic French thriller Stranger by the Lake will be deleted mid-month, while the end of the month will bring the expiration of Leviathan, arguably one of the best documentaries of the decade thus far. Skim the list to see if there’s anything you’ve been meaning to get to, because who knows when they’ll make it back into the streaming rotation.
