10 Movies That Changed the World

Posted on Jul 18, 2013 by | 3 comments

This infographic popped up the other day and it got me thinking, just what might be the most influential films ever made? This seems like a pretty good list, though Syrianna might be a bit of a stretch, but what films might you think should be included? The Battleship Potemkin? Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs? 12 Angry Men? Any others that should be recognized?

  1. I will defer to my friends with more cinematic knowledge than myself, but it seems to me that two films worthy of inclusion are STAR WARS and CLERKS. I once read somewhere that cinematic science fiction was never the same after the release of STAR WARS, and that CLERKS is the progenitor of DIY cinema.

    Just my two cents.

    • I don’t think the films chosen are talking about changing the form but rather influencing society in some way. That’s probably why the list is full of conventional and bland films. I would also say that Stranger than Paradise and Slacker predate Clerks in terms of being the progenitor of DIY cinema.

      • I don’t know what the list is truly trying to convey. Half of them are about they influenced movies and half of them have some impact on society.

        Heck, if they wanted a recent film, I’d suggest V for Vendetta which became the symbol of the Arab Spring, Anonymous, and the Occupy movement.
