Leaving streaming services September 2018

So many goodies are hidden away on Netflix and Hulu that I would hate to see anyone miss these five classics that will be disappearing in September:

"American Psycho" – Bret Easton Ellis' controversial novel about 1980s Wall Street excess reached the screen more or less intact under the direction of Mary Harron. Key to the success of the movie is Christian Bale's total commitment to the role of a murderous yuppie who earns big piles of money by day and kills people by night. The 2000 indie has lots of fun with 1980s period details. (Hulu)

"Casino" – Martin Scorsese's three-hour examination of Las Vegas mob history was a box office disappointment in 1995, but over the years it has joined "GoodFellas" and "Mean Streets" in the pantheon of great gangster pictures. Robert De Niro is the casino manager whose life falls apart after he becomes obsessed with a high-priced call girl played by Oscar nominee Sharon Stone. (Netflix)

"Dead Poets Society" – Robin Williams should have won his Oscar for this 1989 prep school drama rather than for "Good Will Hunting" eight years later. The students are played by a terrific company of young actors who would go on to make waves as adults, including Ethan Hawke, Josh Charles and Robert Sean Leonard. (Netflix)

"Drugstore Cowboy" – Director Gus Van Sant's best film to date follows a tight-knit group of addict friends as they plot drug store heists for their next fixes. The 1989 movie was made on a tight budget, but has an authentic 1970s feel to it. Matt Dillon is shockingly good in the lead role and Kelly Lynch is both funny and scary as his girlfriend. (Hulu)

"Ghostbusters" – The original and still the best entry in the horror-comedy franchise about New York City goofballs who team up to roust the funkiest spirits in town. Bill Murray solidified his superstar status with this 1984 blockbuster and Sigourney Weaver's send up of demonic possession is still a hoot. (Netflix)
