MUBI isn’t your typical film app, but that’s exactly why we love it. Instead of bombarding you with thousands of films that cause endless indecision, it offers just 30 titles at a time.
Yes, just 30. But don’t worry, it’s a refined rather than scant experience, with the list of movies having been carefully curated with true cinephiles in mind. It’s a list that’s constantly evolving too, with a new film added daily in place of the film that joined the flock a month ago.
Forget Blockbusters, MUBI’s film selection is all about giving arthouse joys the spotlight.
So, if you’re into Kurosawa, swear by Woody Allen, or bless every sequence in Fellini’s works, here, mixed among the minimalist list of cult classics and must-watch movies, is a collection of impactful documentaries and the sort of dramas you’ll wonder how you ever lived without.
As well as ensuring you won’t see just any old film clogging up MUBl’s measured collections, this curation process is enhanced by bespoke explanation as to why each particular movie is worthy of your time.
With a design as elegant as the films within, movies can also be downloaded in HD. New users are even able to enjoy a 7-day free trial to get their cinema-loving juices flowing. Nice.
