Max today has added 84 new movies to its streaming lineup. Here are the four best, in my humble opinion.

Dog Day Afternoon
The 1975 movie reunites The Godfather’s Al Pacino and John Cazale as real-life bank robbers whose caper goes horribly askew. Based on a real-life story, Dog Day is a showcase for two of the finest actors of their generation. Brilliant performances. And great story telling from New York auteur Sidney Lumet.

Jackie Brown
The 1997 crime drama directed by Quentin Tarantino stars Pam Grier as a flight attendant whose money smuggling scheme gets her entangled with a band of marvelous misfits including Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, Robert De Niro, Bridget Fonda, Robert Forester and Chris Tucker. (What a cast!) Self-made film scholar Tarantino pays homage to the black exploitation films of the 70s (which includes some with Grier in lead) as well as the decade’s dark pulpy dramas. Jackie Brown is not as good as Pulp Fiction, but it’s close.

I, Tonya
Margot Robbie is magnificent as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in this entertaining comedy-drama directed by Craig Gillespie. The movie chronicles Harding’s role in the knee-capping of rival skater Nancy Kerrigan as well as her relationships with her low-life husband and his best buddy/knee capper, played with aplomb respectively by Sebastian Stan and Paul Walter Hauser.

The Hurt Locker
The brilliant 2008 Iraqi war drama stars Jeremy Renner as a munitions specialist who’s ready to blow. There have been many films that strive to show the horrors of war after the soldier comes home but few have done it better than The Hurt Locker. Renner’s character becomes addicted to war’s adrenaline rush and is never able to live normally again. It’s a great performance.
