theauteurs.com

Essentially, The Auteurs lets you watch high quality streams of movies on your computer, mostly for a small fee (£3 for longer films, £1 for shorter ones) though some films are free. Slanted towards the more esoteric end of the cinematic spectrum, it abounds in titles that your local Blockbuster – or, for that matter, LoveFilm – is highly unlikely to carry. October’s film of the month, for example, is Dry Summer, a largely forgotten masterpiece of 1960s Turkish cinema. Beyond the streaming service The Auteurs also acts as a hub for the discussion and appreciation of film (sample forum discussion: ‘favourite pinku eiga films of the 1960s?’) and as an outlet for news about cinema worldwide. With an emphasis on community and debate and a clean, intuitive interface, the site is a great place to discover, talk about and, yes, watch everything from classics to under-the-radar gems.
