At the beginning of (and during) every month, Amazon Prime and Amazon Video add new movies and TV shows to their libraries. We figure you might want to know about them. For more comprehensive coverage of the best titles available on Amazon and elsewhere, check out Vulture’s What to Stream Now hub, which is updated throughout the month.

Look at that subtle off-white coloring: American Psycho (2000)

Christian Bale’s Patrick Bateman covers up his taste for murder with a (somewhat) respectable job on Wall Street. Based on Bret Easton Ellis’s novel, Mary Harron’s film comes with its share of quotable dialogue and brutality covered by the sheen yuppie excess. It’s also fun to compare to The Big Short, a more recent Bale offering, in which the bankers are the monsters in and of themselves.
Available March 1.

Back to the classics: The Blue Angel (1930) and The Seven Year Itch (1955)

Amazon has acquired a slew of classic films this March. Two suggestions: The Blue Angel, which launched the career of the great Marlene Dietrich; and The Seven Year Itch, which gave the world the iconic image of Marilyn Monroe in that white dress.
Available March 1.

Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters (1984)

Before Paul Feig’s new take on Ghostbusters comes out this summer, look back on the Bill Murray–led original. You may have memorized all the quotes, drank the Ecto Cooler, and had nightmares about the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man as a kid, but now you can go back to relive the schlocky '80s glory of it all.
Available March 1

Consider the profiler: The End of the Tour (2015)

James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now) takes on a snippet of the life of David Foster Wallace in this miniature biopic, which is based on David Lipsky’s book about his time spent interviewing the novelist on book tour. Jason Segel more than proves his dramatic chops as a tortured genius, while Jesse Eisenberg plays a version of a sycophantic, intrusive reporter that will make you cringe every time you pick up a magazine profile from now on.
Available March 3.

Clone club: Orphan Black (Season 3)

In the third season of BBC America’s clonetastic thriller, Tatiana Maslany faces off against Tatiana Maslany, teams up with Tatiana Maslany, and even betrays Tatiana Maslany. It works, because she can make each iteration of herself unique, and because Orphan Black doesn’t take itself too seriously. This is a pulpy adventure story, and one of TV’s funniest genre programs, especially when Alison Hendrix (Tatiana Maslany) is onscreen.
Available March 27.
