Netflix Now: Wrestlemania Film Festival Edition


Oooh yeah, Flixist fans. It’s upon us once again. Comin’ right at ya from New York City, yeah. The Tribeca Film Festival kicks off tonight! Yeah, a cup of coffee at primetime to keep us going until the wee hours, yeah. Time to make the donuts from the top turnbuckle — dunkin’ my elbow right there and I hear the one, two, three count, yeah, HUH! Intercontinental film blog, yeah!

Okay, so I’m pretty excited for Tribeca, but I need to stay focused. I’ve switched up my source for the new stuff on Netflix Instant since I noticed lots of irregularities on the RSS feed recently. So, anyway, what’s new?

For one, there’s one my favorite movies from 2011, the documentary Bill Cunningham New York. There’s also the Korean heist movie The Thieves, Sang-soo Hong’s In Another Country, and the very good Bob Flanagan doc Sick, for all you sickos out there. Plenty more to watch as well.

After the cut, everything on Netflix Instant, and the Macho madness continues because the beat goes on.
