Our Movies series enters the 21st century with this definitive lineup of the 100 most important films made during the 2000s, an age of evergreen franchises, historical epics, and comic-book superheroes, as well as fast-evolving CGI aesthetics, low-key global indies gaining unprecedented audiences, and hard-hitting documentaries (and mockumentaries) becoming mainstream feature hits.
Through the gripping stories, insightful dramas, and thrilling, mindless escapism 100 Movies of the 2000s gathers the best of the best around the globe, from the blockbuster Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings installments to cult classics Lost in Translation, Inglourious Basterds, No Country for Old Men, The Lives of Others, and And Your Mother Too. Each movie masterpiece is profiled with stills and production photos, a synopsis, analysis, and movie-buff trivia, as well as cast, crew, and technical listings.
