'Movies like 1984': Based on Classic Dystopian Literature

Movies based on the dystopian visions of George Orwell, Ray Bradbury, Anthony Burgess, and others. You will find only the most critically-acclaimed films in this collection, guaranteed to make you think twice about who you vote for!

'Movies Like Brazil': Dystopias to Make Kafka Proud

Gilliam, Lynch, and Cronenburg collide in this list of dystopian nightmares that lean on Kafka's aesthetic; difficult to sum it up without resorting to the circular adjective 'Kafkaesque', but you'll know it when you see it!

'Movies like Donnie Darko': Sci-Fi Gets Experimental

Sci-fi is already the most "out there" genre, so what happens when experimental directors take its themes and run with them? Check out this collection of the very best boundary pushing science-fiction films and find out for yourself. Just don't say we didn't warn you!

'Movies like Silence of the Lambs': Charming Sociopaths

So manipulative...but so charming...so violent...but so, so charming! Dangit! We can't quite bring ourselves to hate these cinematic sociopaths. See if you can!

'Movies Like Easy Rider': Anti-Authoritarian Throwbacks

The 50s ,60s, and 70s saw a slew of films decrying 'The Man' in all his pernicious manifestations. Then the 80s came and everyone got rich, started blowing coke, and just stopped caring. Go figure.

'Movies like Pulp Fiction': Cult Crime Movies

In the vein of 'Reservoir Dogs' or 'Mean Streets': movies that have spawned their own sub-cultures of dedicated fans (and provided a plethora of movie-poster choices for college freshmen decorating their dorms). If you haven't heard of each and every single one of these, you're just not a film-buff. Sorry.

'Movies Like Total Recall': Dystopian Sci-Fi Classics

After the fall of fascism and the growth of communism, Hollywood was inundated with speculative sci-fi imagining how the future might look if 'The Man' got his way. Having passed many of the years these films were set in (e.g. 1984), all we can say is : 'Thank God it's not THAT bad!'

'Antiest of Anti-Hero Movies': Seriously Entertaining Psychos

The anti-hero movie at its most extreme: watch these morally bankrupt, mentally unsound, and somehow highly watchable protagonists wreak all the havoc you wish you could, but know you can't. Like Grand Theft Auto in movie format!

'The Cruelest Animal': Chilling Portraits of Evil

What is evil? The question has haunted theologians for millennia, but seems to make modern people uncomfortable. This eclectic collection of films eschews cartoonish tropes, delving into the real nature of evil as a psychological, spiritual, and social phenomenon.
