Five recent Drafthouse Films titles have landed on Netflix Instant, which means instant gratification is yours. Drafthouse Films has curated a collection of remarkable, essential movies, and while you can always procure them through their website or through the Drafthouse Alliance (and you should really consider joining the Drafthouse Alliance, as it’s an incredible value and receiving mail is fun and movie mail even more fun), it’s hard to argue the convenience of being able to watch these films with a touch of a button.

So what’s on deck?
