With wintertime here, that can only mean one thing: Indoor movie season. As the weather gets colder and people are forced inside yet again, it’s time to kick back and stream some classics. HBO Max may be putting out all of Warner Bros' blockbuster films throughout 2021, but now is a great time to kick back and watch some independent classics. The streaming wars may be in full effect, but Netflix is still the undisputed king at the moment and is chop full of quality films everyone should watch.
The phrase "independent film" may conjure up artsy images for some people, but these films can range any genre or budget range. Some of the best films of all time were distributed by independent studios, and some of the most acclaimed directors started their career cutting their teeth with independent filmmaking, so mining the indie classics is definitely a must for anyone wannabe film buffs. Check out a rundown of the 25 best independent movies currently available to watch on Netflix!
