Video Obscura alert: The Fabulous Baron Munchausen (because the Amazon Prime recommendation engine sucks)



... and HBOmax is worse.


Don't get me wrong Amazon's catalog is good and HBOmax's is great but I don't recall ever actually watching a movie or TV show their algorithm picked for me.

Instead, I get most of my recommendations when I Google a film or a show and it pops up in the streaming options. Notably Kanopy is never listed, making me wonder if there's an element of pay-to-play involved.

My latest discovery is this hard to find classic from Karel Zeman, currently on Amazon.
