The Big Red N has produced some iffy content. And bought up some dross that studios thought was pretty much unreleasable. Those films that appear on the algorithmed menu twice a week are often pap, difficult labours of love by auteurs or Adam Sandler flicks.

Here are my favourites of the movies they funded or provided a platform for when no one else would.
