Netflix To Stream Albert Brooks’ Films

Comedian and actor Albert Brooks had a long career before he became known as the voice of Marlin in the “Finding Nemo” films, one aspect of it that doesn’t get discussed as much as it should are his efforts at directing.

Kicking off with 1979’s “Real Life,” Brooks penned and directed seven theatrical features which include 1981’s “Modern Romance,” 1985’s “Lost in America,” 1991’s “Defending Your Life,” 1996’s “Mother,” 1999’s “The Muse” and 2005’s “Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World “.

Starting tomorrow (July 1st), Netflix has revealed it will make these films available to stream for the first time ever, although sadly they will be available only to Netflix’s U.S. subscribers. Brooks even shot a special piece for the announcement which you can see below:
