Nothing lasts foreverâ€“a maxim that’s certainly true, on a monthly basis, when it comes to Netflix. Luckily, the movies scheduled to depart from the streaming service starting March 1 won’t be too hard to miss. Still, here’s 11 worth catching before they’re gone.

Gone in 60 Seconds (March 1)
Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie are car thieves forced to steal fifty vehicles for a British gangsterâ€“who’s holding Cage’s brother hostageâ€“in this flashy, high-octane 2000 remake of the 1974 original.

Cosmopolis (March 18)
Don DeLillo‘s novel about a young tycoon (Robert Pattinson) whose world is slowly falling apart is given a cool, mesmerizing, and thoroughly strange adaptation by director David Cronenberg.
Side Effects (March 18)
After her husband’s release from prison, a young suicidal wife is given an experimental new antidepressant, which only further complicates her relationship with her spouse and two psychiatrists in this thriller from director Steven Soderbergh, and starring Jude Law, Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum, and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
Keep the Lights On (March 23)
Director Ira Sachs details the complex, increasingly troubled romance between a gay filmmaker and an attorney in this stellar relationship indie.
