The 25 Best Drama Movies Streaming on Netflix Right Now

Death of a Salesman (1985)

Director: Volker Schlondorff
Stars: Dustin Hoffman, John Malkovich, Kate Reid

Arthur Miller's masterful play about the American dream disenfranchised gets a lo-fi cinematic treatment, visually speaking. But performance-wise, you couldn't ask for a better adaptation. Dustin Hoffman's turn as the hobbled everyman, Willy Loman, is one of his finest. John Malkovich makes a solid mark as Willy's son, Bif, a pivotal player in the haunting turn of the final act. Pair it with Gatsby for the kind of night that will have you ready to become an expat.
