A list of the five best long Netflix movies to watch right now
Ah, the long movie. How “important”. How time-consuming. How absolutely daunting. We shared the list of the five best long Netflix movies available to stream right now.
I can’t be the only one who checks the runtime of something and put it off after seeing that it’s longer than, say, two hours. Granted, a lot of my favorite movies are super long (including some on this very list), and for good reason – the storytelling frequently demands it.
But sometimes, I’m just not in the mood. Maybe it’s my busy schedule, or maybe it’s the millennial short-term attention span DNA in me, or maybe it’s my frustration at the ironic situation that I know I’ll need to pay fuller attention to a longer drama and not nearly as much attention to a shorter comedy. Whatever the case, it can be more appealing to queue up a regular-sized film (1h30-2h) than anticipate reveling in the andante goodness of a 2h30+ long movie.
Lucky for us, circumstances nowadays are what they are, and we have little to no excuse to not screen longer content. If you’ve been putting off watching films with long runtimes, or if you’re looking for a crash course in where to start, now’s the time, folks. This slideshow lists five entries (by length) of good long movies that are on Netflix right now for your viewing pleasure. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!
