100 Greatest Films of the 2010s

50. High Life (2019)
Dir: Claire Denis

49. Manchester By the Sea (2016)
Dir: Kenneth Lonergan

48. The Florida Project (2017)
Dir: Sean Baker

47. Little Women (2019)
Dir: Greta Gerwig

“Little Women will be the Greta Gerwig movie that will establish her as one of the most important filmmakers of the 21st century.” – Katie Doyle’s review.

46. The Witch (2015)
Dir: Robert Eggers

45. Toni Erdmann (2016)
Dir: Maren Ade

44. The Lobster (2015)
Dir: Yorgos Lanthimos

43. Drive (2011)

Dir: Nicolas Winding Refn

Arguably the most visceral and aesthetically compelling of all of Nicolas Winding Refn’s individualistic catalogue, Drive was praised for embracing video game culture with the blocking of shots and choices in the edit, Ryan Gosling’s brooding anti-hero being one of the actor’s strongest performances to date and being one of a number of films to establish the actor where he is currently. This is a tight and concise movie from a director at the height of his confidence, and the score/soundtrack is one of the best of the decade.

42. Phantom Thread (2017)
Dir: Paul Thomas Anderson

41. Birdman (or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) (2014)
Dir: Alejandro G. Iñárritu

40. Arrival (2016)
Dir: Denis Villeneuve

39. If Beale Street Could Talk (2019)
Dir: Barry Jenkins

38. Black Swan (2010)
Dir: Darren Aronofsky

37. Frances Ha (2012)

Dir: Noah Baumbach

Featuring a performance from co-writer Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) that is considered the most established on-screen portrayal of her career to date, Noah Baumbach’s gorgeous black and white love letter to New York City featured all of the dialogue intricacies of his other written and directed works only with more individual focus and a change to his ordinarily male-led narratives. Co-starring a host of up-and-coming names including Adam Driver, Frances Ha will be best remembered for how relatable it was to so many people.
