In the past, FlashRouters has highlighted some of the best free movies streaming on YouTube, but the list grew outdated pretty fast. Film companies and their lawyers are notorious for acting with lightning quickness when one of their films is being streamed for free without their permission.
In that spirit, here is a new list – one which will be updated regularly – to keep our readers aware of the great full, free movies streaming on YouTube. If by the time you read the post the link for the movie is rendered invalid, we apologize, but as we said, these things pop up and disappear with stunning speed.
Anyway, we hope you get some enjoyment out of our favorite free movies streaming on YouTube. This is a varied list, from classic westerns to anime to documentaries and beyond. But first…

Best Full Free Movies Streaming on YouTube in 2015
A Most Violent Year – A rare restrained gangster picture, A Most Violent Year continues prodigious writer/director J.C. Chandor’s (Margin Call, All Is Lost) winning streak. Oscar Isaac (another guy on a serious hot streak) stars as Abel Morales, a businessman who struggles to keep within the bounds of the law, despite pressure from his employees, colleagues, and hard-nosed wife (Jessica Chastain, yet another person who can do no wrong lately).
True Romance – If you’re looking for a chance to catch a whole lot of pre-breakthrough talent (Patricia Arquette, James Gandolfini, Brad Pitt, Quentin Tarantino) mixed with some gleefully over-acting established talent (Christopher Walken, Gary Oldman), then True Romance is the movie for you. Weirdly, Dennis Hopper does some memorable, subtly affecting work in this movie too. Anyway, it’s an early Tarantino script, so there’s plenty of criminals delivering stylized dialogue, some kung-fu worship, and lots of creative violence. Enjoy.
The Crazies – Feeling a little Timothy Olyphant-deficient now that Justified is off the air? Well, The Crazies may not live up to that show’s high standard, but it is a surprisingly effective horror movie about a town of people who slowly start getting a little murder-happy after the government infects their water supply with a toxin.
Exit Through the Gift Shop – It should come as no surprise that Banksy’s documentary style is unconventional, and Exit Through the Gift Shop makes a terrific case for his unique facility with the format. Banksy follows Thierry Guetta a videographer who becomes enamored with street art and eventually makes a name for himself as a conceptual pop artist (of questionable talent) called Mr. Brainwash.
My Dinner with Andre – The gold standard for two-actor chamber pieces, My Dinner with Andre stars Wallace Shawn and Andre Gregory as two old acquaintances who meet up for an obligatory dinner and end up having a surprisingly deep conversation over dinner. Sounds a bit dry, but you’ll be shocked at how engrossed in their conversation you become.
The 39 Steps – One of the early Alfred Hitchcock classics, The 39 Steps follows a pattern that would become familiar to fans of the director. A normal guy, through a series of misunderstandings and coincidences, becomes unwittingly involved in espionage and intrigue, and must subsequently go on the lam.
Better Off Dead – One of those gonzo teen comedies that could have only come out of the ’80s, Better Off Dead stars John Cusack (who else?) stars as Lane Meyer, who loses his girlfriend and tries to win her back by winning a skiing competition. You heard us right. A skiing competition. It’s every bit as ridiculous as it sounds but thoroughly entertaining.
Wild Strawberries – Just in case My Dinner with Andre doesn’t offer enough art-house power to this list, we’re going to give you an Ingmar Bergman movie about death and emptiness (and really, aren’t they all?). Victor Sjostrom stars as a professor who is due to accept an honorary degree, but must confront the lack of meaningful connection in his life as he nears death. Yes, that description makes the movie sound like it has a distinct eat-your-veggies quality, but it’s a truly beautiful film.
Alien – It’s extraordinary that a movie title can lay claim to a primary feature of sci-fi (aliens) and actually earn it. A claustrophobic, idiosyncratic, influential, and just plain horrifying film, Alien more than earns its reputation and all of the acclaim it has received over the years. If you’ve seen it, go ahead and watch it again. If you haven’t, boy, are you in for a treat.
Frances Ha – Lastly, we bring you one of the more delightful coming of age stories of the past decade. Weirdly, it comes from typically caustic writer/director Noam Baumbach, though his rough edges have clearly been tempered by his collaboration with the luminous co-writer Greta Gerwig. Gerwig stars as the titular Frances, who is having a difficult time living in one of the most expensive cities in the world (NYC) while trying to pursue her dream of dancing. It is a sweetly funny and melancholy examination of the awkward time when a person is just on the border of maturity, bolstered immeasurably by Gerwig’s natural charm.
