Every month, movies come and go on Amazon Prime Video. It’s hard to follow. You might see a movie one day and think you have time to watch it. Then come back a week later and off you go. Many titles tend to leave Amazon, especially towards the end of each month.
When it comes to movies leaving Prime Video in November, some have already disappeared, like Domination of the Jurassic world And Serpico. But a few, including obscure indie films that probably never would have been on your radar otherwise, will still be available for a few more days or weeks. After that, they will disappear from the streaming service. So check them out before you have to hunt them down elsewhere.

Miami Blues (1990)
Alec Baldwin stars in this ’90s neo-noir dark comedy-drama based on the novel of the same name by Charles Willeford. He is Frederick J. Frenger Jr. (Junior, for short), a violent sociopath with a penchant for theft. When he accidentally kills a Hare Krishna at the airport after he has just been released from prison, Junior is chased by a police sergeant named Hoke (Fred Ward) who is convinced of his guilt.
Cat-and-mouse games lead to many twists and turns as Junior does whatever is necessary to circumvent the long arm of the law; even pretending to be an officer himself. Miami Blues has been called an “offbeat crime”. Baldwin’s comedic talents are on full display in this killer film. But the supporting cast is also praised for their scene-stealing roles, including Jennifer Jason Leigh and the late Charles Napier.

The Way of the Cutter (1981)
Since the beginning of the 80s, The Cutter’s Way has established itself as one of the best works of the late director Ivan Passer (he also directed Stalin in 1992).

He later learns that it may be the body of a missing girl.
Now Bone is no longer an innocent man whose car broke down on the side of the road in the wrong place and at the wrong time. He became suspicious. His friend, a brash and troubled Vietnam veteran named Alex Cutter (John Heard), decides to help him when Richard swears he spotted the culprit at a local parade. It looks like it might be local tycoon JJ Cord (Stephen Elliott). The situation begins to deteriorate, conspiracy theories develop, and Cutter and Bone find themselves in a dangerous position. The Cutter’s Way has both a gripping story and a fabulously compelling cast.
