The revolving door of films coming and going from Netflix features some familiar titles like Christopher Nolan's Batman films, the first three Fast & Furious films, "A Clockwork Orange," "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" and the overlooked animated classic "Monster House" leaving the streaming service in September. There's also a fair share of Disney titles leaving including "Leroy & Stitch," "Mulan" and "Pocahontas." If you're addicted to "Californication," "Portlandia" and "Parenthood" you'll want to speed up your binge-watching, all three will be walking into the sunset in September.

Here are five other titles that caught my attention.


"High-Rise," an adaptation of J. G. Ballard's novel, is a stylish dystopian film about a futuristic building with a self-contained society that finds the lower classes populating the lower levels and the rich occupying the upper floors. Why go outside if you can go shopping or socialize in your own building. Every comfort of life is just an elevator away. Things get ugly. They often do. "High-Rise" is a retro-future sci-fi drama with horror elements (psychological and otherwise). The film boasts a cast that includes Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, and Elisabeth Moss. (Leaving 9/1/19)

Mr. Mom

Written by John Hughes ("The Breakfast Club," "Pretty in Pink"), "Mr. Mom" saw Michael Keaton starring as a man who loses his job and becomes a stay-at-home father when his wife is hired by a advertising agency. Consider this a time machine to another world (1983) where gender roles were far more rigid than they are now. Or, you can just enjoy it for Keaton's performance that essentially typecast him as strictly a comedic actor and caused an uproar when he was cast as Batman in Tim Burton's 1989 film.

Revolutionary Road

Based on Richard Yates's novel and directed by Sam Mendes ("American Beauty"), "Revolutionary Road" is a film set in America in the mid-1950s where the dreams of a would-be actress (Kate Winslet) and her nondescript-businessman husband (Leonardo DiCaprio) look to escape the unhappiness of the American dream. Winslet won an Oscar at 2009's Academy Awards. It was well deserved, but she won it for "The Reader." She was much better in this. (Leaving 9/1/19)

The First Monday in May

Everything I know about fashion I learned from watching movies. Andrew Rossi's documentary "The First Monday in May" looks at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's "China: Through the Looking Glass," a exhibition focused on Chinese influence on Western fashion, and the Met Gala. Chinese film director Wong Kar-wai and Costume Institute's chief curator Andrew Bolton color the story, but it's fashion icon Anna Wintour who dominates the narrative. Sometimes the best part of an event happen behind the curtain. (Leaving 9/1/19)


Based on "The Price of Salt" by Patricia Highsmith, "Carol" stars Rooney Mara as Therese Belivet, an aspiring photographer working as Frankenberg's department store in Manhattan, who meets and falls for Carol Aird (Cate Blanchett), one of the store's glamorous regulars. Like "Revolutionary Road," "Carol" takes us back to a time where an act of love was beautiful and dangerous. (Leaving 9/20/19)
