Each year Netflix releases a number of original movies. Some of the streaming service’s films have been Oscar-winners. But which are the best ones?
Using Rotten Tomatoes scores, Insider Entertainment ranked the best Netflix movies. No documentaries or concert films were included in the calculation.

A good list? Yes, but I would have included Oscar-nominated “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs,” a Coen brothers film that features six different stories set in the American frontier. Also, as a sci-fi fan I would have added “I Am Mother,” a film about a post-apocalyptic world in which a girl is being raised in a bunker by an android known as Mother. And as a film buff, I would have picked Netflix’s look at director Orson Welles’s unfinished experimental film, “The Other Side of the Wind.”
