Here Are All The Movies Disappearing From Netflix In March

The disappearance of several classics pervades the Netflix streaming departures this March, with films like Michael Mann’s ThiefDas Boot, and the Charlie Chaplin Collection (why did I not know this was on Netflix?) all getting the ax throughout the month. Netflix usually does a good job of replenishing the well, but to lose the sweltering Desperado during this frigid time is akin to losing your car keys as your wife is about to give birth. Most of these titles are vacating the premises on March 1; others are leaving later in the month. The clock starts now, folks. Get a’ watchin’.

The Blair Witch Project

It’s a film that broke our top 10 horror films on Netflix, and now it’s time to say goodbye to the snotty, fear-stricken youths who can’t seem to get out of the damn woods. While mercurial to many audiences, there’s no denying the impact and cultural resonance this film carried.

The Graduate

Mike Nichols’ classic about a man treading water — literally and figuratively — after arriving back home from college is a compressed coming-of age-tale that never tries to saturate its narrative with melodrama. Nominated for seven Academy Awards (Nichols won best director), The Graduate doesn’t wear, thanks to its sharp script and strong performances.

Leaving Las Vegas 

Alcoholism is a dangerous addiction, one that progresses if left untreated. Leaving Las Vegas depicts the depravity of an alcoholic (Nicolas Cage in an Oscar-winning performance) on a mission to drink himself to death after leaving his career behind. Elisabeth Shue co-stars as a prostitute and Cage’s love interest as he enters the twilight of his life with a bottle in hand. A haunting and sometimes disturbing peek inside the machinations of suicide.

Se7en 

Oscar-nominated and Golden Globe-winning director David Fincher came to prominence, after spending much of his formative years directing music videos, with this 1995 film starring Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman. They play detectives on the hunt for a serial killer who has taken the seven deadly sins as his blueprint for murder. You can see Fincher and co-star Kevin Spacey team up again this week for House of Cards third season.
