25. Dunkirk | Director: Christopher Nolan | Language: English

Christopher Nolan’s monumental war-film “Dunkirk” is actually a tense, gripping, cinematic marvel that drenches you in a fight for survival. Without even showing an ounce of blood being spilled or ever getting a peek at the monster in hiding, the film replicates what it feels like on a battlefield. Technically sound, humane and rib-ticking tense this is filmmaking at it’s absolute daring best.

24. Blade Runner 2049 | Director: Denis Villeneuve | Language: English

Existential questions get a fitting answer in Denis Villeneuve’s visual splendor – “Blade Runner 2049.” A cyberpunk odyssey that retells us the importance of memories, love & our existence in general. Seen through the eyes of someone who doesn’t truly understand why he is put on the planet, this beguiling sequel takes a cue from the original and builds walls, cells, and replicants of fakeness until all of them come crashing down on themselves.

23. Good Time | Director: The Safdie Brothers | Language: English

Imagine Martin Scorsese’s terribly underrated “After Hours” with flickering neon dreams leading to a bad acid trip that wakes you up every 30 seconds. The Safdie Brother’s “Good Time” is an anxiety-inducing nightmare that is truly sensational for what it does to your nerves. Featuring Oneohtrix Point Never’s blistering musical score and an insane central performance by Robert Pattinson, the film is a chaotic experience that is hard to shake-off.

22. A Quiet Dream | Director:  Zhang Lu | Language: Korean

Focusing on a whimsical, almost-dead pan rom-com narrative, Zhang Lu’s “A Quiet Dream” investigates the quotidian lives of a group of people living in the poorer suburbs of Seoul. Shot in black-and-white and occasionally boosting a melancholic undertone, the film follows people who cope up with their social and geographical displacement only to live a life that doesn’t echo with their dreams. With minimalist visual motifs, realistic humor and an ideal social comment, the film becomes a lyrical ode to the everyday people. This ponderous comedy about misfits resonates deeply when you are willing to consider dreams as part of reality and reality as part of dreams.

21. 120 Beats Per Minute | Director: Robin Campillo | Language: French

Image result for 120 BPM roger ebert review

Well-acted, bold, brave and poignant to an extent of complete speechless numbness, Robin Campillo’s “120 BPM (Beats Per Minute)” is a moving portrayal of a time in history that changed the face of a community still fighting for the right to live as normal human beings. The activist in the film snap their fingers when they strongly agree or support an opinion, I snap my fingers to support this film, which, if not relevant enough, does happen to be extremely important.
