100 Best Movies of All Time Story

Audiences have been enraptured by cinema since 1895 when Auguste and Louis Lumière used a cinematograph machine to project moving images onto a screen. 

Naturally, movies have come a long way since the early days of 50-second reels, resulting in a rich variety of styles—many of which are easily streamed right from home.

Meanwhile, every cinematic era has put forth its respective slate of timeless masterpieces.

#100. Amadeus (1984) This 1984 biopic chronicles the life of Amadeus Mozart, namely through the eyes of his bitter contemporary Antonio Salieri. 

#99. The Hurt Locker (2008)

Kathryn Bigelow’s career hit a second stride with the release of her gripping Iraq War drama, “The Hurt Locker.” The film follows a bomb disposal team from one job to the next. Instead of traditional character development, the story coasts by on a wave of sustained and almost unbearable tension. 

#98. Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) Director George Miller resurrected his classic “Mad Max” franchise in 2015, with Tom Hardy taking on the lead role, formerly played by Mel Gibson.

#97. The Truman Show (1998)

A film that only gets more prescient with time, 1998's “The Truman Show” takes place in a completely fabricated town where cameras lurk behind every corner and every citizen is an actor or actress.
