The list includes films that were inspired by a wide range of topics, from art house European cinema to highly-regarded classics of the Golden Age of Hollywood. Included are movies that were Academy Award recipients and nominees and even Best Picture selections - as well as cult movies or sleeper hits that took time to find an audience.
