Untitled — 1 year ago

I don’t know any off those films. I also find it funny that the top image on this page has A Clockwork Orange and none of the films I look for are mentioned on the list. As far as I know they don’t have

Ilsa, She-wolf of the SS

Any of the “Guinea Pig” Films

Jorg Buttgereit’s Nekromantik


A Siberian Film (say they will never carry this)

Faster Pussycat Kill! Kill!

I can’t think of all the titles I use to have in my Que but I just wanted to put my two cents in and that I found the list on here boaring. I like my movies of a "lesser quality’ than this list.

Film Now Available — 4 years ago

The Unknown is available under the title of the Lon Chaney Collection.

Zorn's Lemma — 4 years ago

Try GreenCine — 5 years ago

If you can not find a title on Netflix (because they suck), try GreenCine.com. They are a California based rental company specializing in hard to find Cinephilia. They also have an option to early return, meaning you can tell them when you’ve mailed back a film you’ve seen, and they will instantly send the next in your queue. It speeds up turnaround time considerably.

Untitled — 5 years ago

The Wedding March should be Stroheim version

Madam de.. — 5 years ago

Madam de… aka The Earrings of Madam de… is soon to be released on dvd and is available on NF.

Updated — 5 years ago

So, the list is now updated. These are all the films that Netflix doesn’t mention. Most of these film are not on DVD at this time.

I will add movies maked ‘saved’ with release dates unknown soon.

Thanks for your support! :)

Great list! — 5 years ago

Also, from the TOP 100:

Madame de …

Voyage in Italy

Last Year at Marienbad


Letter from an Unknown Woman — This last one they had listed as requiring a long wait. I put it at the top of my queue and waited. After months, they finally sent it to me and even though the listing was for the Ophuls film, they sent me a recent Asian film of the same title. I sent it back to them and alerted them to the mistake, and their response was to change the status of the Ophuls film to unavailable!



A Woman Under the Influence


The Killing of a Chinese Bookie

Opening Night

(These Cassavetes films are particularly frustrating as they ARE currently available on North American DVD. Netflix had them as status unknown, but recently shifted that status to unavailable (translation: we haven’t bought them yet, and we don’t plan to). To me these movies represent a sea change at Netflix, a decision to scale back somewhat, not to buy all the art-house releases, even if they are major U.S. milestones, but to take a step in the direction of the safer, mountains-of-mediocrity, traditional approach of Blockbuster.)


Blood Simple

Human Condition trilogy

Les Vampires

Do Bigha Zamin (Is that on TSPDT?)


Room at the Top

Shame (This they had listed as available until it reached the top of my queue, whereupon it switched to unavailable!)

Triumph of the Will

The Gospel According to St. Matthew

Many, many others.
