So here's a list of exclusively great films, from renowned and revered award winners to lesser-known gems. Martin Scorsese, stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey It's strange that this title doesn't often rank high in "best Scorsese movies" lists, given that it is so accomplished at every level of production.
Compelling, shocking and very, very funny, it tells the story of Jordan Belfort DiCaprio , a ruthless stockbroker whose fraudulence and market manipulation afforded him an incredibly opulent and debauched lifestyle - until the feds closed in. Cast to perfection, this is the film that cemented Jonah Hill as more than just a stoner comedy actor so desperate was he to achieve his dream of appearing in a Scorsese film that he offered to perform his key role in Wall Street for free. Centring on a divorcee Carell being reeducated on single life by a suave younger man Gosling , Crazy, Stupid, Love starts out a light watch that packs a lot of laughs.
It's working away on your soul, though, and by the end this surprisingly profound comic drama will have you in tears. Two detectives Pitt and Freeman stalk a serial killer whose murders are inspired by the seven deadly sins. The film moves through them with great pace and suspense, before concluding with an unforgettably macabre twist.
De Palma brought style and emotion to this fairly simple story of a Cuban refugee turned drug kingpin, a rambunctious mix of artful relationship drama and gory, pulp action movie. It's always a pleasure to soak up the pastel neon of s Miami, the iconic new wave soundtrack, and the fearsome, immersive lead performance from Al Pacino. That I nearly wrote "stars Tony Montana" above says it all. James Mangold, stars Winona Ryder, Angelina Jolie, Brittany Murphy, Elisabeth Moss was a vintage year for cinema and this drama was ahead of its time, both in its brutally honest exploration of mental health and its overwhelmingly female cast.
Kaysen Ryder is on the surface of it one of the less severe cases at Claymoore psychiatric hospital, but, as she is led astray by the other rebellious patients Jolie et al , her manipulative personality has an insidious effect on them all. Damien Chazelle, stars Miles Teller, J.

You don't have to be particularly into jazz nor drumming to appreciate this meditation on creative discipline. It's a fireworks display of a film which overloads the senses and will have you so close to the edge of your seat as to risk back injury. David Fincher, stars Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Rooney Mara, Justin Timberlake As with The Big Short, this biopic was hard to get excited about when it was first announced — the story of Facebook's rise from dorm room prank to world-changing social network didn't appear to be particularly dramatic on the surface of it.
Thanks to a razor sharp script from Aaron Sorkin, Eisenberg's performance as Facebook founder and neurotic genius Mark Zuckerberg, and Nine Inch Nails's Trent Reznor's driving score, it is however an absolute pleasure to spend minutes with. In light of recent events surrounding Facebook, I only wish we were going to get a Social Network 2.
Damien Chazelle, stars Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone If you take my Whiplash recommendation and have a good time with Chazelle's breakthrough feature, you'll be pleased to hear his follow-up is also on Netflix. La La Land isn't quite as easy to love but stunningly executed. It's a love letter to classic Hollywood unfolding through the lives of a struggling musician and actor Gosling and Stone.
Joe Wright, stars Keira Knightley, James McAvoy, Saoirse Ronan, Benedict Cumberbatch This beautifully-acted adaptation of the Ian McEwan novel centres on precocious year-old writer Briony Tallis Ronan and the lives she irreversibly changes when she accuses her older sister's lover of a crime he didn't commit. The cinematography is breathtaking; you'll want to hang stills from the film on your wall. Gus Van Sant, stars Robin Williams, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Minnie Driver Damon and Affleck penned one of the all-time great scripts here, telling the story of a kid from the wrong side of the tracks in Boston Damon who happens to also be a self-taught maths genius.
Robin Williams gives an unforgettably tender performance as his therapist, as the film probes deep philosophical questions and examines the worth of knowledge. The year is , and two decades of human infertility have left society in ruins. This is no mild dystopia — there's only one functioning government left in the world. Clive Owen plays civil servant who mild to medium spoiler alert who discovers a refugee is pregnant and must get her to safety amid chaos and rioting. Engrossing from start to finish, the thriller is notable for its daring single-shot sequences, which saw long strings of action captured in one take thanks to some nifty camerawork.
His chemistry with Cruise is fabulous to watch. Cruise's hustler character finds his inheritance has been given to an autistic savant brother Hoffman he knew nothing about. He initially tries to exploit Raymond's gift for numbers, but ends up warming to him and the pair establish an unusual and touching sibling relationship.
Rain Man also features on our list of movie mistakes that only made their scenes better. As quirky and detail-orientated as you would expect for the auteur, this is a film made with a lot of love that will please viewers of all generations. Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping Hugely funny, it skewers everything from stadium show gimmicks to celebrities' use of social media.
Keep your eyes people for an amazing TMZ parody. Mike Mills, stars Annette Benning, Elle Fanning, Greta Gerwig Given the male egos on the geopolitical stage at the minute, there's something quite timely about this story of a boy being raised by women amid a spirit of freedom prevalent in Santa Barbara in Annette Benning shows why she is one of Hollywood's greats, in an increasingly rare lead role. Dan Gilroy, stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Riz Ahmed Realising that his sensitive demeanour is actually weirdly creepy was the best thing Gyllenhaal could do for his career.
With Nightcrawler, he quit playing heroic soldiers and explorers and took on a sinister video journalist obsessed with covering the most grim and violent crime scenes he can scramble to. An underrated thriller with a lot to say about American news consumption. Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, stars Saoirse Ronan, Helen McCrory, Aidan Turner Each of this film's 65, frames is an oil painting on canvas, created painstakingly by a team of artists employing the same techniques as Vincent van Gogh. If that fact doesn't get you to at least stick this film on and give it a chance to draw you in, I don't know what will.
Carrey stayed in character for the entire production of the biopic, infuriating and inspiring his co-stars. Here we find out why, and get to spend some time in Carrey's mind, which is not always a very happy place to be. A surprisingly moving watch. Dir Karyn Kusama, stars Logan Marshall-Green, Tammy Blanchard There's neither witchcraft nor unexplained supernatural goings on in this horror, which takes place entirely at an incredibly awkward dinner party.
The hosts will just not stop being creepy. Protagonist Will seems to be the only guest convinced something is not quite right, but is it all in his head?
