Many Netflix films are hyped even before their premiere. An example of this is “Don’t Look Up”, which started being advertised by the platform months ago, has a stellar cast, a credited director, and is a premeditated success. Now, there are those productions that weren’t made in Hollywood, aren’t exactly famous filmmakers, don’t have celebrity casts, and are almost never recommended to you by the platform. Many of these works are wonderful and subscribers don’t even know what they are missing. If you have any doubts, you can check IMDb for the ratings of these titles and the praise from viewers and online critics. Highlights for “Love Me”, by Mehmet Ada Öztekin; “The Night of the Fire”, by Tatiana Huezo; and “Leaking Photos”, by Wregas Bhanuteja. The titles available on Netflix are organized in alphabetical order and do not follow ranking criteria.
