10 really good Netflix movies PART 1

It is Monday evening and therefore obviously the evening on which you do not leave the house. On Sunday the euphoria from the weekend may still resonate, on Wednesday you prepare for the weekend again - but on Monday. Monday evening should be the holy evening of quality time and for euphoric Netflix users like me, busy me-time evenings (and days too, let's be honest) are a challenge. Series? Seen the most important. It's amazing how many series you can see if you really WANT. A change can shake up the series routine. Something that's like a series, just a little bit shorter, you see? A story that compresses 5 seasons of 10 episodes of one hour each.

Exactly. Really good Netflix movies.

But experienced Netflix users also know why they have already seen all of the series, but have not gotten beyond Pulp Fiction, Breakfast at Tiffany's and Clockwerk Orange in terms of film technology. The film tips that you have accumulated in your note-taking app over the years of laborious work and Insta-Story views (“Film tip?”) Are no longer necessary with Netflix. Almost all of them don't exist. That's why I, an avid cineast and sloth, went on a search, watched (at least it felt like it) the entire film contingent of Netflix, in order to introduce you to Part 1 of the 10 REALLY good Netflix films that you may not have seen yet. Lean back, save yourself the trailer marathon, don't read a story before, trust me and have fun doing nothing.
