I'm about to hit play on Transit. Which of these other streamable movie represents the best use of my Filmspot nomination crunch time?

Long Day's Journey Into Night (2h 18min)
Peterloo (2h 34min)
An Elephant Sitting Still (3h 50min)

Write-in votes welcome. I'd really love to catch up on some documentaries, especially. Two of the Oscar ones (Honeyland, American Factory) are already in my queue, along with Apollo 11. I'd like to watch For Sama as well, but I can't remember whether or not PBS edits/censors their films these days. I seem to recall Ken Burns' Vietnam doc being available unedited (but that being kind of a rare thing).

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Long Day's Journey is really good, but I can't help but wonder if I'm missing something by not seeing it (or at least a certain hour-long take) in 3D.

Considering you have some foreign dramas up there, have you seen 3 Faces, Tigers Are Not Afraid, or Too Late To Die Young? I don't claim to know your tastes, but check 'em out, I think they're great though destined to be overlooked. Tigers Are Not Afraid can be watched with a Shudder sub, and they have a free trial.

I made my list on New Year's, and my regret maybe not including Honeyland.

Of the ones mentioned here, I'd make For Sama my priority.

I think Peterloo is wonderful, a dramatization of an event not many know the history of, and a rousing one at that. I haven't seen the others tho.
Check out my blog of many topics

Im not a quitter, Kimmy! I watched Interstellar all the way to the end!

The Souvenir is on Kanopy. Everyone should catch up with it before the Filmspots.

Yeah, that film is really good.

Elephant Sitting Still is also really good, but also very long.

Should I see The Turning or will I just leave sad that they don't properly adapt such a great novel?

We already have The Innocents. I don't see this as being better in any way.

The OST that hit Spotify today seems slightly fire, it has Mitski!

EDIT: Brooklyn Prince is one of the kids too, and I'm curious to see what she can do outside of Florida Project. Not about that guy from Strange Thangz though.
