Pickings continue getting slimmer and slimmer every week folks, even as Netflix continuously rotates films in its streaming library. There just doesn't seem to be a lot to choose from - not as much as I'd like anyway. 

So here's what I could dig up this week, and hopefully, at least 1 of this week's 5 will entertain you.

As usual... These aren't all necessarily recommendations. Consider the list more of an FYI - films 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 and see for yourselves.

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

1 - Keith Miller's work of cinema verite, Welcome To Pine Hill, released by Oscilloscope Laboratories.

Pine Hill follows a recently reformed drug dealer, now working as a claims adjuster by day and bouncer by night, who receives some earth-shattering news, forcing him to make peace with those around him, as well as himself.

The narrative was inspired by a chance encounter between director Miller and the film's star Shannon Harper, who found themselves fighting over a lost dog one night in Brooklyn, NY. It has its beginnings in a short film, titled Prince/William, before it was expanded into the feature film, Welcome To Pinehill.

Made in collaboration with the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective, a group which writer/director Miller belongs, the film, a 2011 Independent Filmmaker Lab participant, World Premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival last year, where it won the Grand Jury Award.

Watch a trailer for the film below:
