Amazon today (October 1) has added 148 new movies to its Prime Video lineup, which is free with a Prime membership. Here are the four best new films, in my humble opinion:
The Big Lebowski (1998)
The 1998 cult comedy from the Coen Bros. features an iconic Los Angeles slacker (Jeff Bridges) named ‘The Dude’ who accidentally becomes the focus of a murder investigation.  Only Joel and Ethan Coen could take this farfetched plot and turn it into a cultural mainstay and masterpiece that resonates with multiple generations. The flawless supporting cast includes John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Philip Seymour Hoffman, David Huddleston, Julianne Moore, and John Turturro as Jesus, a bowler with a strange fetish for his ball.
Fatal Attraction (1987)
The 1987 drama from director Adrian Lyne that did more to curb adultery than any 1,000 sermons. Michael Douglas plays an attorney whose life is turned upside down when he has an affair with a disturbed book editor (Glenn Close) who’s never met a rabbit she liked. The film is a taut and juicy depiction of what people will do when emotions are stretched and temptation is dangled.

Moneyball (2011)
Starring Brad Pitt and based on a true story, Moneyball offers a captivating insight into the unconventional approach taken by the Oakland Athletics baseball team to build a competitive roster using statistical analysis. This sports drama showcases innovation and critical thinking in the world of sports management.
Eight Men Out (1998)
Director/writer/actor John Sayles’ underrated 1998 drama about the Chicago ‘Black Sox’ scandal in the 1919 World Series is a winsome look at an American tragedy through the lens of modern socialism. If that seems a bit much for you, you’ve never seen a Sayles film before.  You’ll be ready to vote Joe Jackson into the Hall of Fame before the final credits roll.
