Where To Watch John Sayles’ Film Library Online

Here at the John Sayles Blog, we are often approached by fans wanting to know where they can see their favorite John Sayles’ movie. So we went ahead and compiled a list of John’s films that are available to stream and/or download via the major digital platforms.

We were excited to see that John’s 1991 urban epic CITY OF HOPE is available in HD on multiple platforms. This title was previously only available on VHS and standard definition streaming.  If you haven’t seen it, we highly recommend checking it out.


Unfortunately BABY IT’S YOU, MATEWAN, SECRET OF ROAN INISH and MEN WITH GUNS are not currently available for streaming or download. But rest assured, we are working to change that.

We’ll make sure to upload this list every so often since many of these digital channels rotate their titles regularly. If we missed any, please let us know in the comments section.

A message from John & Maggie

What a great time we had on the YELLOW EARTH book tour. We loved seeing all of our old friends. Lots of hugging and kissing and shaking of hands. That was then! We were very lucky to return home – la
