     April 25, 2016

While not many big movies are coming to Netflix this May, it turns out that quite of few major entertainments and masterpieces will be leaving the premium streaming service throughout the month of May. This begins with the first of the month, which brings the exiting of Alexander Payne‘s Election, the 1980s comedy classic Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, and Beware of Mr. Baker, one of the great music documentaries to be released this decade, following the career of the titular, intensely prickly Cream drummer. This will also bring the final day for Bus Stop, featuring Marilyn Monroe.

Beyond that, May will bring the end of two very good comedies: Kevin Smith‘s Sundance classic Clerks and the Coen brothers’ odd yet endearing remake of The Ladykillers. On top of this, there are two of Ridley Scott‘s best films, including Black Hawk Down and Blade Runner, though the latter sci-fi classic is immediately only being shown in its original, less-than-stellar theatrical cut. Lastly, there’s Pawel Pawlikowski‘s lovely, haunting Ida, one of the best films to deal with the Holocaust and its aftermath to come out this decade, alongside Son of Saul and a few other works. And as you’ll see below, there’s plenty more that will be hitting the skids by the end of May.
