I’m always torn when I struggle to put these lists together. On one hand, it means there isn’t much leaving the service getting worked up about. On the other, my recommendations aren’t quite as full-throated as they’d normally be. That said, there are a few gems being removed from Netflix in the month of October.
Because it’s the one you’re probably least likely to have seen, my number one suggestion is Frances Ha. This is the movie that really put Greta Gerwig on the map before she went on to direct the career-defining Lady Bird. As a movie, it’s almost obnoxiously scatterbrained, but it’s really sweet and Gerwig gives a stellar performance that will stick with you long after you back out to the Netflix menu to watch more Impractical Jokers.
Here are the ten best movies and shows Netflix is dumping next month, and the date on which they will be dumped. If you don’t watch them before then, you might never get to see them on Netflix at all:
- All the President’s Men | October 1st
- Cloverfield | October 1st
- Deliverance | October 1st
- Frances Ha | October 1st
- Gremlins | October 1st
- Hoosiers | October 1st
- Impractical Jokers: Season 1 | October 1st
- Pineapple Express | October 1st
- The Fall: Series 1 | October 29th
- The Imitation Game | October 29th
