To reiterate a suggestion I previously made, if you're a filmmaker/producer/distributor reading this, and your film is streaming on Netflix, please let me know. Netflix unfortunately doesn't have what I feel should be a more efficient search/sort method, and it can be quite a chore trying to find something worth watching. So, help me out if you can.

A band called death

To reiterate a suggestion I previously made, if you're a filmmaker/producer/distributor reading this, and your film is streaming on Netflix, please let me know. Netflix unfortunately doesn't have what I feel should be a more efficient search/sort method, and it can be quite a chore trying to find something worth watching. So, help me out if you can.

The same goes for non-filmmakers. If you stumble across any titles that you think should be featured in this weekly series, let me know!

But as usual... These aren't necessarily recommendations. Consider the list more of an FYI - films and TV shows we've talked about on this site, at one time or another, that are now streaming on Netflix, that you might want to check out for yourselves.

Without further ado, here's this week's list of 5:

1 - The rockumentary A Band Called Death is already streaming on Netflix, not long after its limited theatrical run over the summer.

Directed by Jeff Howlett and Mark Covino, the film tells the not-widely-known story of Death - formed in the early '70s by three teenage brothers from Detroit (the Hackney brothers, David, Bobby, and Dannis), and credited as being the first black punk band, now considered pioneers in their field decades later.

It's equal parts electrifying rockumentary and epic family chronicle, and should be seen.

It's recommended viewing - especially for those unfamiliar with the band (as I was before I first learned about the film a couple of yeas ago).

The film's rocking trailer is embedded for you to watch below:
