May 2020 Streaming Movie Picks

Here are some Anomalous Cinema approved picks for May, 2020 that are streaming on Amazon Prime, Netflix, or Hulu. All titles are linked to their imdb page. These are not all new to their respective services, but they are good to great films that I personally enjoyed.

Yes, several of these are seemingly obvious choices. That is why they’re here, and not a featured recommendation. Also, I’ve met a lot of younger people that have never seen movies I consider essential (Taxi Driver, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, etc).

If you get anything out of this list please consider supporting the site over on Patreon. You get exclusive recommendations and more. Thank you.
