Why Netflix Sucks

Some movies by (mostly) major directors currently "unavailable" from Netflix, either for streaming or on DVD/BD [as of 8.11.2015]. Many have been unavailable from Netflix for years.

To be fair, I'll list below titles which were previously on my list, but have meanwhile become available from Netflix, either for streaming or rental.

Angela's Ashes (1999) (streaming; still no DVD)
