The Best Movies to Stream on FilmStruck While You Still Can #SciFiSunday
We’re definitely going to miss Filmstruck, too. Check out this great list from Vulture, and binge while ya still can.
The world of film lovers is still reeling over the announcement that their beloved FilmStruck will shut down permanently on November 29. Naturally, with their grief comes a desire to get as much out of the streaming service as possible before it becomes a footnote in digital history. The home of the Criterion Collection and TCM Movies, FilmStruck was — and is for a few more weeks — a true film fan’s paradise, filled with acknowledged all-time classics as well as more obscure international fare. It’s the place one goes if they’re looking for the work of Ingmar Bergman, Akira Kurosawa, Yasujirō Ozu, and so many more.
For guiding your way through the catalog of FilmStruck while you still can, we’ve put together this list of two dozen films according to some pretty strict rules. First, we excluded anything currently streaming for free on other paid services like Hulu, Netflix, or Amazon Prime. Many of these are available to rent on services like iTunes or Vudu, but none are included in a subscription package as they are now with FilmStruck. Also, with so many classic movies to choose from, we limited ourselves to one film per director. You could do 24 films by Bergman or Kurosawa alone; we figured it better to spread the wealth to offer a real taste of what FilmStruck meant to so many people.

We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly.
