What's coming to Amazon Prime in September?
September is a busy month for Amazon's original television shows, including the third season of the critically acclaimed Transparent and new series by director Woody Allen and comedian Tig Notaro. Yet there's also plenty of new movies being added, including classics by Michael Cimino and Stanley Kubrick and great new ones including The Witch and Sicario. For a full list, read below:
Any Given Sunday
Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations
The Deaths of Ian Stone
The Devil Inside
Eight Men Out
The Four Feathers (2002)
Full Metal Jacket
Good Will Hunting
With the recent death of The Deer Hunter director Michael Cimino, there's no better time to revisit his far more divisive follow-up Heaven's Gate. The epic was a commercial and critical disaster in its time and considered by some to be the death knoll of the '70s independent film movement, but in recent years has come to be thought of as a neglected masterpiece.

One Mississippi (Season 1)
When Tig Notaro was simultaneously diagnosed with breast cancer, had her mom die and ended a long-term relationship, she decided to chronicle it in the stunning stand-up special Live, as well as the Netflix documentary Tig. Now she's switched to Amazon for this semi-autobiographical series about a woman returning home after her mother's death, with Notaro collaborating with Juno and Young Adult screenwriter Diablo Cody.
Bigger, Stronger, Faster
Ghosthunters on Icy Trails
Creative Galaxy (Season 2)
Fleabag (Season 1)
Schitt's Creek (Season 2)
The wide release of The Witch, while gratifying to see for such a great film, may have backfired by irritating all those expecting a typical jump scare horror movie. Those willing to watch something different will be immensely rewarded by Robert Eggers' incredibly eerie, atmospheric film about a New England Puritan family convinced they are in the presence of a witch.
American Gothic (Season 1)
Jiro Dreams of Sushi
Denis Villeneuve will have an even larger profile with the release of his new sci-fi film Arrival in November and his Blade Runner sequel next year, but last year's cartel thriller Sicario is where he first captured many people's attention. Villeneuve's direction, Hell or Highwater screenwriter Taylor Sheridan's script, Roger Deakins' cinematography and Benicio Del Toro and Emily Blunt's performances all made for an incredibly sturdy genre piece.
Transparent (Season 3)
Jill Soloway's series about a family whose former patriarch has come out as transgender (played by Jeffrey Tambor) has been Amazon's greatest television success so far, winning Emmys and Golden Globes for Tambor's performance and best comedy. Now the show will come back for a third season, which follows the family's ongoing adventures, including a cruise to Mexico.
Conan O'Brien Can't Stop
District 13 - Ultimatum
No Place on Earth
Crisis in Six Scenes (Season 1)
