Today’s question deals with the future, or more specifically what we think about it. I wanted to ask which recent movies do you think will age well? By that, I mean what films will be praised in future years by audiences. Many films well liked in their day have received much backlash and aren’t remembered as highly (Titanic), while some were misinterpreted and received acclaim years after their release (Blade Runner).
I can name a few off the top of the top of my head (I’m setting the time frame for the last three years). My picks would be The Master, The Tree of Life, Amour, A Separation, and Drive. The Master is a thought-provoking movie that proves director Paul Thomas Anderson’s skill as a master filmmaker. The Tree of Life is a nonlinear movie that is a parallel to 2001, and Terrence Malick would have made Kubrick proud with this film. Amour and A Separation are more conventional picks, but are no less well made. And Drive‘s highly stylized visuals and smooth soundtrack will surely make it a cult classic.
But what are your picks?
