Okay, so my friend's teenage son subscribes to the online Netflix thing -- one month free, then only 8 bux a month. Sounds great, right? I signed up.
I wanted to watch Leaving Rangoon again. It's a terrific film I first saw on cable about 20 years ago.
Can't find it.
In fact, a quick check of their site shows me a lot of movies for 14-year-olds but very little for cinema buffs. Couldn't find Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris, for example. I'm not saying it isn't there - but I couldn't find it.
So, what I'm really asking is, how do you search the site for optimum results?
How do you indicate that their sophomoric offerings are what you avoided at the theater lo these many decades because they were never interesting and remain such?
8 bux a month is worth it if I can find ONE film per month I want to see.
So far, the batting average is ZERO.
All I wanted was Leaving Rangoon. Is it there? Anybody know? My search skills are, admittedly, rusty, except for the NYT, Google, and here.
So if there are any Netflix aficianados out there, I would appreciate advice on how to find the kind of old, quirky movies I like.
Thanks in advance. (^.^)
