What did you add to your queue either today or very recently? These are mine.
(1) Vanishing of the Bees(documentary)=this highly rated film covers Bee Colony Collapse, the unprecedented loss of our bee population, and the reasons why it is happening and is one of the first films to cover this issue.
Out on NF June 14
(2) 3 Idiots(India)
(3) Bliss(Turkey)=available on Instant Watch & Roku

LOL---I think he wants to be the stool! ;)
I added the new Woody Allen documentary to my instant watch.
Americans' right to access fresh, healthy foods of their choice is under attack. Farmageddon tells the story of farms that were providing safe, healthy foods to their communities and were forced to stop, sometimes through violent action.
I added about 12-20 old British crime thrillers from the 30s and 40s to my streaming queue. They now have English captions.

From a partial list of this week's releases, I added two documentaries:
(1) Craigslist Joe
(2) First Position
What's Cooking? (2000)=There are many Christmas movies available but not that many good Thanksgiving films. What's Cooking is probably one of the better ones out there.
It follows four different families reuniting for Thanksgiving. Rather than than more utopian holiday movies of 50-60 years ago, this film reflects modern realities. There is in-family bickering amongst family members who don't always get along. One family's daughter brings her lesbian lover with her and comes out as being gay to her parents; there are interracial romances, including a Mexican girl who brings her Vietnamese boyfriend to her family's home etc.
Alfre Woodard is probably the best known star in this film. 4 stars. A rewatch.
Promised Land ( 2012)=this film on fracking or natural gas drilling can be Saved. But NF keeps track of the number of people who have a certain title saved, so the more people add it, the more likely they are to carry it when it's on DVD.
Yes, I want to see that too.
A lot of the newer movies I haven't had the time to see. Here's some I've added or want to see, some I might can still see at the theater:
Life of Pi
Robot & Frank
Paul Williams, Still Alive
Split Estate (2009)=the forerunner of Gasland. Documentary on fracking mainly in the western mountain states. Can be Saved.
I added two documentaries, one American and one from Germany.
Hitler's Children (2011. Germany)=This comes out on Thursday 4/4, not this Tuesday.
