Top 250 Films Everyone Should Watch

Adrian Țofei, December 17, 2016

Latest Update: August 19, 2018

  • Some of these films impressed me in the past, others recently. The ratings are on a scale from 1 to 10 and reflect my current opinion on how good they are. I don’t consider all of them to be great films, some might have only a great scene, a great acting performance, a great concept, or, for documentaries, great revealing info.
  • If a widely acclaimed picture or your favourite film is missing, it doesn’t necessarily mean that I didn’t like or appreciate it, I might have not seen it yet, or maybe it impressed me in a way, but didn’t make my top. This is a personal list, I make recommendations based on my opinions, not on what others deem essential.
  • Listing these films doesn’t mean support or acceptance of the illegal, unethical or immoral behaviour of some of their creators and stars, nor that I agree with their opinions on any subject matter. It also doesn’t mean approval of all the ideas contained in the films or of the ways the films were made.
