5 Best New Movies on Netflix Instant: Gems From Shailene Woodley, Kirsten Dunst and—Believe It or Not—Nicolas Cage

The Brothers Bloom (2008)
Between making the shatteringly brilliant high-school noir Brick (2005), and the perplexingly dense Looper (2012), writer/director Rian Johnson made this twisty big-con caper flick, starring Adrien Brody and Mark Ruffalo. The pair star as brothers involved in a giant, multi-leveled gambit—yes, the last one of their careers—trying to scam a beautiful heiress (played by Rachel Weisz) out of a fortune.

Netflix continues to add to the LGBT movies available on its streaming service, and giving viewers more of a variety to choose from. Today, we take a look at some of the best gay films to pop up over the past few months. If you’re a fan of Magic Mike, you’ll enjoy La Bare‘s provocative glimpse at the world of male stripping. The film offers a unique perspective on the demands male strippers have to go through to keep their bodies in shape and the dollars flowing. One of my favorites on the list, however, is Out Late, which concerns five senior citizens who come out after the age of 55. The subjects explain why it took them so long to come out and the reactions they got from their families, spouses, and friends.

There’s 10 more where that came from. Check out our list of the best new gay movies on Netflix streaming below:

If you’ve seen the original, you no doubt have the steamy sex scene between Cooper and co-star Michael Ian Black in the camp’s tool shed etched in your brain. If you haven’t, well here you go (and you’re welcome):

So far there’s not official release date for the series, but you can bet we’ll be waiting impatiently.
