5 movies to watch this month on Netflix

Three weeks into September is probably a little late to be telling you of the movies choices available to view this month on Netflix but there are some quality additions to the catalogue.
For your viewing pleasure I have decided to once again sift through the vast array of quality movies on show and recommend five classics so you don't have to spend half the night flicking through Netflix's choices before deciding that you are now too tired to watch a film anyway and vow to return at a later date just to do the very same thing.
Here are my movie picks for your enjoyment for this month:

5. Straight Outta Compton
Musical biopic which follows the meteoric rise and fall of NWA is undoubtedly heightened by strong direction from F.Gary Gray and a stellar performance from it's talented cast. Scintillating viewing!

4. Jawbone
Ken Loach meets Rocky in this brutal boxing drama that contains a mesmerising turn from Johnny Harris in the lead role. With a supporting cast that includes Ray Winstone and Michael Smiley this bleak and bruising drama is British film making at it's very best.

3. First They Killed My Father
Netflix Original and Angelina Jolie directed biopic about a human rights activist and her attempts to survive during the oppressive Khmer Rouge era of rule in Cambodia. This harrowing drama is another shining example of Jolie's undoubted talent as a director.

2.The Walk
Robert Zemeckis directed biopic of Phillipe Petit and his attempt to wire walk between New Yorks Twin Towers in 1974. Stunning visuals and an electric performance from Joseph Gordon Levitt make this a very worthwhile and entertaining action drama.

1. George Harrison: Living in the Material World
This HBO directed documentary is a must for anyone with even a passing interest in the Beatles and George Harrison as director Martin Scorcese delivers an extremely detailed and personal look in to the life of this artistic genius. Compelling!
