(Welcome to The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen, a series that takes a look at slightly more obscure, under-the-radar, or simply under-appreciated movies. In this edition, we take a look at some of the best films of 2017 that didn’t make a critical splash, earned next to nothing at the box-office, and aren’t even being touted as among the year’s most underrated.)

2017, like many of the years before it, has been a pretty great time at the movies.

(Welcome to Now Stream This, a column dedicated to the best movies streaming on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and every other streaming service out there.)

Summer is here, which means it’s time for summer movie season! Which also means that most of the movies hitting multiplexes will be terrible. Why not stay home and stream some good movies instead?

The monocles of movie theater purists everywhere likely just shattered at that news, but this is the age we live in. Below you’ll also find a French horror film, a Japanese New Wave classic, an animated cult classic, a masterpiece of trash cinema and much more. So crank up the AC, turn on the TV and avoid going outside and making human contact at all costs! Let’s get streaming.
