Yeah! Hot Doc. Netflix original, I think. Nina really was a righteous, fearless goddess, politically way ahead of her time, and musically capable of eliciting tears like a stiff breeze from an onion-chopping factory. Love her.

I suspect most people use N-flix just to stream series, but here's a list of good movies on there. I'd add to it, but some friends or fam must be using the account right now (instead of working like decent members of society should be at this hour!) so I can't check in. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/on-demand/2016/05/13/the-best-movies-on-netflix-uk/ Seems like you dove straight into the Netflix original movies, which are almost universally crap, whereas their original series are almost universally quite good. That said, being as you're in the mental health industry you might like the one they did featuring Paul Rudd as a care worker. It was surprisingly sweet and sober. The Fundamentals of Caring. And the comedienne Maria Bamford did a great series exploring her bipolar disorder called Lady Dynamite (first ep is a bit tryhard, but it gets great after that).

I will say that it's a complete homogenous bag of shite for anything not in English, except for a ton of anime. Was surprised to see Rififi on there, though. Always loved that film so much. I think the rights to most Soviet films went free a few years back. They should at least throw in a few Tarkovsky films, but then there's Fandor for that kind of stuff: https://www.fandor.com/
