For your consideration, and in case you’ve perhaps only heard of these films but have never actually sat down and watched them, here are the 10 best movies from the 2000s that are currently available on Netflix. If you haven’t seen them before, now would be a good time to do so–before they disappear from streaming and fall back into just a title you’ve heard of but have never actually watched.
