HBO Max may be putting out all of Warner Bros' blockbuster films throughout 2022, 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 chock-full of quality films that everyone should watch.
The phrase "independent film" may conjure up artsy images for some, but these films can range in 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 careers cutting their teeth with independent filmmaking, so mining the indie classics is definitely a must for any film buffs. Check out our rundown of the 26 best indie movies currently available to watch on Netflix.
