The list of new movies on netflix because this month has made me both happy and confused. When we received the May 2023 schedule, I was a little disappointed with the lack of critical gems, but ultimately was pleased to see some movies worth watching.

But then something weird happened. One of my favorite classic movies that I’ve only recently seen popped up on Netflix out of the blue with no warning. This movie, combined with six other gems, gave me reason to build this list that rounds out our super-sized best movies on netflix roundup.
