Netflix hasn’t been playing too faithful to us genre freaks over the last few months. We’ve been seeing a lot of films that are deemed classics arrive, but the majority of us have seen those flicks a dozen times, at least. The company’s new releases have also been a bit too familiar to warrant a return visit. But, that’s the name of the game.
Since we don’t have a list of sublime, brand new Netflix additions to recommend, we’re going to keep it simple and highlight 10 flicks that are always worth a return visit. Check out our picks below!

I Am Jane Doe
The epic battle that several American mothers are waging on behalf of their middle-school daughters, victims of sex trafficking on Backpage.com, the adult classifieds section that for years was part of the iconic Village Voice. Narrated by Academy Award-nominee Jessica Chastain and directed by award-winning filmmaker Mary Mazzio, the documentary follows the journey of these young girls and their mothers in real time as they run headlong into a collision course not only with Backpage but with judges, powerful corporations, special interest groups, and an outdated internet freedom law that has been interpreted by federal judges to protect websites from any responsibility for hosting ads which sell underage girls. I AM JANE DOE is a gut-wrenching human story and fresh look at a social and legal issue that affects every community in America.
