The Best Amazon Studios Movies

Updated April 3, 2020 793 votes 120 voters 5.6k views46 items

Since Transparent began snagging high profile awards in 2015, Amazon got into the movie game and recent films distributed by Amazon Studios have garnered some major critical acclaim. The best movies from Amazon Studios are produced by both established, award winning directors and up and coming stars. Which movies are the best of the best? Vote on this list of Amazon Studio films to help decide. 

The acclaimed Chi-Raq was produced by veteran director Spike Lee. The Big Sick, written by relatively new screenwriters Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani, was one of the highest grossing independent films of 2017. Films like Elvis & Nixon, Love & Friendship, and Gleason are also helping cement Amazon Studios as a true contender in the movie business. Other Amazon movies include The Neon Demon, The Handmaiden, Manchester by the Sea, and Last Flag Flying

Below, you will find a comprehensive list of all Amazon Studio movies. Vote up the movies you think are the highest quality and vote down anything that you feel was subpar. If there's anything you feel is missing, feel free to add it below.
