100 Greatest Films of the 2010s

75. A Separation (2011)
Dir: Asghar Farhadi

“the picture doesn’t hide behind technical trickery to ever distract from the story unfolding in front of us – it is impeccably told and perfectly balances each character in a way that ensures everybody is understandable and complex.” – Bradley Weir’s review.

74. Blue Is the Warmest Colour (2013)
Dir: Abdellatif Kechiche

73. What We Do In the Shadows (2014)
Dir: Taika Waititi

72. Moneyball (2011)
Dir: Bennett Miller

71. Coco (2017)

Dir: Lee Unkrich, Adrian Molina

The highest rated of all of Pixar’s contributions to the decade, this Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina directed visual spectacle merged the spectacular and unique themes of Mexico’s Day of the Dead with a heart-warming and at times heart-wrenching narrative that simultaneously celebrated a culture and became a force for empathy. It is now the highest grossing movie in Mexican box office history.

70. Raw (2016)
Dir: Julia Ducournau

69. 20th Century Women (2016)
Dir: Mike Mills

68. Kill List (2011)
Dir: Ben Wheatley

67. A Ghost Story (2017)
Dir: David Lowery

66. Sorry We Missed You (2019)
Dir: Ken Loach

“a voice for those without one from a filmmaker who now seems to be the last bastian of such filmmaking, an 83 year old 50+ year veteran of the screen we must all cherish.” – Joseph Wade’s review.

65. The Big Short (2015)
Dir: Adam McKay

64. Prisoners (2013)
Dir: Denis Villeneuve

63. First Reformed (2017)
Dir: Paul Schrader

62. Skyfall (2012)

Dir: Sam Mendes

Arguably the greatest 007 movie ever, Sam Mendes’ collaboration with famed cinematographer Roger Deakins was at the very least the most visually spectacular in the franchise’s history and a high mark for action films in the 2010s. Daniel Craig excelled as a more moody Bond growing into the expectations of the character as being a quip-laden, sarcastic secret agent, to create the ultimate modern Bond movie and a memorable (and incredibly lucrative) moment in the decade – it’s still the highest grossing movie ever released in the UK.

61. Blade Runner 2049 (2017)
Dir: Denis Villeneuve

“a simply marvellous blend of technical skill and emotional resonance.” – Harrison Thorne’s review.

60. The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
Dir: Wes Anderson

59. Mommy (2014)
Dir: Xavier Dolan

58. Burning (2018)
Dir: Chang-dong Lee

57. The Revenant (2015)
Dir: Alejandro G. Iñárritu

56. Nocturnal Animals (2016)
Dir: Tom Ford

“this is a film perhaps devoid of the ability to completely engross and encourage the suspension of disbelief, but is without a doubt a work of art unlike many others in North American cinema at the moment.” – Joseph Wade’s review.

55. Midsommar (2019)
Dir: Ari Aster

54. Dunkirk (2017)
Dir: Christopher Nolan

53. Hereditary (2018)
Dir: Ari Aster

52. Ida (2013)
Dir: Pawel Pawlikowski

51. Roma (2018)

Dir: Alfonso Cuarón

Alfonso Cuarón’s incredibly personal authorial journey Roma was not only a 10-time Oscar nominee, including a win for Cuarón himself in the Best Director category, but arguably the most important movie in the history of Netflix; this release about a Mexican family’s maid establishing the streaming platform as a new studio to be reckoned with and increasing the pressure on the Academy and film festivals across the world to accept straight-to-streaming releases as fully fledged films, igniting arguments over what constitutes as cinema.
