Welcome to Flavorwire’s streaming movie guide, in which we help you sift through the scores of movies streaming on Netflix, Hulu, and other services to find the best of the recently available, freshly relevant, or soon to expire. This week, there’s good stuff from Bradley Cooper, Ethan Hawke, Paul Rudd, Julie Delpy, Amy Poehler, Zach Galifanakis, and Akira Kurosawa, plus a must-see documentary and one of our favorite stand-up specials. Check them out after the jump, and follow the title links to watch them right now.
After months of waiting (itself following nine years of waiting, since Before Sunset), this week sees the theatrical release of Before Midnight, the third chapter in the ongoing saga of Jesse and Celine. So in anticipation of that wonderful film, it’s a good time to look back at the first collaboration between Richard Linklater, Ethan Hawke, and Julie Delpy: 1995’s Before Sunrise, currently streaming free for Amazon Prime members. Grin and coo as our American romantic and his French object of desire Meet Cute on a train and spend an evening walk-and-talking in Paris; marvel at how young and innocent they were. But weren’t we all?
