The 45 Best Films Of The 2010s

Take time out to relive 10 years of unflinching, unapologetic, and unforeseeable film

Whittling 10 years of great cinema down into a succinct best-of list is a difficult task; but it’s one we took on with aplomb. Over the course of the past decade, we watched as stale genres were reinvigorated with inventive and imaginative reels, we saw diversity and feminism finally take center stage, and we were keen to celebrated auteurs reaching the pinnacle of their lives’ work while newcomers launched careers of their own with stunning debuts. It was a great decade for the art of film—and these 45 are the cream of the cinematic crop. See if your favorite made the list.
