1. Roma


This movie tells the story of Sofía, a mother of four whose husband is moving out of the picture and Cleo, the nanny of the family is the maid and also the support system. One of the gems by Alfonso Cuarón, this movie has scenes that are occasionally stressful, often heart-wrenching, and they unfailingly burst with life and emotion.

2. Coco


This movie depicts the story of a young boy's search for his mysterious heritage and his musical voice takes him to a place beyond this world, quite literally. This movie is a charming, touching and joyful treat from Disney and Pixar. 

3. Zodiac


Directed by David Fincher, this movie narrated the story of the infamous Zodiac killer who terrorized America for a long period of time in the 1800s but was never caught or tried for his crime. 

4. All The President’s Men


This movie gives out intricate details of the early days of the Watergate scandal. It minutely tells the story of the crime, the coverup, and the scandal that ultimately brought down the Nixon presidency. It is inspired by the story of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, who were also the two reporters who got the case against Nixon. The movie is widely informative and refuses to glam up the story and remains true to the subject. 

5. Raiders of the Lost Ark


This movie has entertained through generation so much that it has entered pop culture immortality. Spielberg managed to make a movie that is packed with a full series of heroes, villains, cliffhangers, and fisticuffs into a single crowd-pleasing feature.

6. Boyhood


This movie by Richard Linklater tells the story of MJ after his parents divorced. He and his sister Samantha live with their mother, whereas the father has visiting rights. Incidents that occur across a period of twelve years mold MJ's life. The best part? Rather than using different actors for his role, they shot the movie through 12 years. 

7. Pulp Fiction


Tarantino's eponymous movie tells the story of three crime stories. One is about a hit man out to dinner with his boss’s wife, a boxer who decides not to throw the big fight and a contract killing gone wrong. Quentin Tarantino writes the kind of tasty, self-aware dialogue that actors love to devour, and he puts together an enviable ensemble cast of big names, fallen stars and rising talents and delivers the best out of it. 

8. No Country For Old Men


This is the first Oscar-winning movie by the Coen brothers and won the Academy for Best Picture and Best Director for this gripping, moody, and darkly funny adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s novel. 

9. About Time


This movie follows the story of Tim Lake who, like all men in his family, possesses the power to travel in time. With the advice of his father, he uses his special ability to pursue his romantic interest, Mary.

10. The Silence of the Lambs


There are very few characters who have managed to leave their mark as prominently as Hannibal Lecter in the face of both entertainment and the human psyche. Anthony Hopkins gave one of the best performances of his life where he brought life to the character of a brilliant monster that earned him the Oscar for his role. The film also won awards for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, and Best Actress, all of them deserving on their own right. 

11. Avengers: Infinity War


Probably the best MCU film, it follows the story of team Avengers trying to stop the Mad Titan from taking all the infinity stones and stopping him from destroying half of the life across the universe

12. The 40-Year-Old Virgin


One of the funniest movies of all time, it is also a complete game changer for the comedy genre. The movie is hilarious along with being extremely NSFW  but also an oddly sweet and sensitive story of a mild-mannered 40-year-old man looking to get laid who ends up finding love

13. Velvet Buzzsaw


The best way to approach this movie is to see it as a slasher movie from the very beginning. Instead of a masked madman rampaging through a summer camp full of horny teenagers, it’s disturbing art rampaging through the art scene full of greedy profiteers.

14. A Separation


Coming from the Iranian director Asghar Farhadi who won a much deserving Academy Award for the best foreign film for this story of a man, his wife, their child, and the family. The highly dramatized moral, social and legal fallout of a domestic episode is a gem to watch and it will stay with you for a very long time. 

15. The Little Prince


This animated movie follows the story of The Aviator who introduces a girl to a world where she rediscovers her childhood and learns that human connections are what matter the most, and only the ones who have pure heart can see what is essentially invisible to the naked eye. 

16. Schindler’s List


With this movie, Spielberg not only proved to be a serious filmmaker but he also gifted the audience with one of the best historical chroniclers of all time. In his movie, he tells the true story of Oskar Schindler, who is a German businessman and member of the Nazi party who became the unlikely savior of more than 1,000 Jewish workers in his factories.

17. The Graduate


The story follows Benjamin Braddock, who is a fresh college graduate who, unable to decide what he wants to do with his life, takes up sleeping with his significantly older neighbor, Mrs. Robinson. 

18. Winter’s Bone


This movie marks Jennifer Lawrence's introduction to the big screen with her tough, memorable performance in this 2010 indie drama from the director Debra Granik. Lawrence looks perfect in the character of a 17-year-old who’s in way over her head, trying desperately to save her family home and track down her father in the rural areas of meth-fueled Missouri. 

19. A Clockwork Orange


The most controversial movie made by Stanley Kubrick, and perhaps his most disturbing too, this movie is an adaptation from the 1971 adaptation of the cult novel by Anthony Burgess. The hyper-violence of the movie is cushioned over by the striking cinematography, futuristic production design, and dark humor. 

20. Pan's Labyrinth


Probably the best movie made by Guilmero Del Toro, Pan's Labyrinth made him return to his roots for this 2006 masterpiece. Set five years after the Spanish Civil war, the story revolves around a young girl named Ofelia, whose stepfather is hunting down the Spanish Maquis who fight against the Francoist regime and whose pregnant mother is growing increasingly ill. To cope with it, she loses herself in a mystical and magical world inhabited by creatures that are gorgeously alluring yet incredibly dangerous.
