Fight Club (1999)
The film is based on the book of the same name by Chuck Palahniuk, which became a world bestseller. Director David Fincher described the film as a black comedy with elements of social satire.
At first glance, this is an absolutely incomprehensible and meaningless film. However, if you think about it, it reveals the conflict of youth and the value system of modern society.
In order to leave and forget, the Fight Club is created, which becomes the main attribute of the tape.
Complementing the excellent script and direction, the professional performance of Brad Pitt, Edward Norton and Helena Bonham Carter.

The most successful and famous film directed by Robert Zemeckis, which won 6 Oscars in 1994.
The tape perfectly illustrates that our success is in our head, and it does not matter what others think.
Forrest Gump was mentally retarded, but that didn’t stop him from accomplishing a military feat, influencing American politics, and achieving his dream.
Now the main actor of the film, Tom Hanks, and his wife, unfortunately, fell ill with the coronavirus. At the moment, they are in isolation.
The Beginning (2010)
Our dreams are unknown and completely known to us at the same time. It’s a paradox, but it’s true. When reading your dreams, do not forget that you are looking into your subconscious.
That’s how the main characters of the film understood in their heads. They found a way to control dreams and use them to change reality.
The perfectly written script could only be complemented by the perfectly selected cast – Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard and Tom Hardy.
The Matrix (1999)
At one time, this film received a significant public response. All because it was from this film that a new era of fiction, graphics and special effects began.

The viewer was shown a science fiction film where machines can rebel against people. And here a hero will appear who will save the world.
This year, the Korean film Parasites became a breakthrough at the International Oscar Film Festival. And no wonder.
This tape seems to combine all possible genres. There is comedy, thriller, drama, crime, and even some horror.
However, the first thing that is important about cinema is that it reveals a complex social problem – the financial stratification of society. It is clearly shown how the difference between the rich and the poor is perceived.
Parasites make you think about it.
