Get a free month of MUBI through this Nifty reader link. Netflix, Prime and other services have an overwhelming amount of content these days, which somehow makes it harder to find something good to watch. I love MUBI’s highly curated selection of classics, docs & contemporary independent films from around the world. Membership includes access to a vault of films + a new handpicked selection dropped every day.
