The modern movie landscape can make some people feel like the best days of film are behind us. With remakes, reboots and adaptations very abundant, and original movies seemingly not raking it in at the box office, that is an understandable sentiment. But the BBC felt like there are a lot of recent movies worth celebrating, and that is why they set out to make a list of the 100 greatest movies of the 21st century. The list they came up with is nothing if not interesting, and it is definitely a reminder that there are a lot of great movies that have been made in the last 16 years.

BBC published the list on Tuesday morning, after taking months to put it all together. In order to come up with this list, they used nearly 200 critics from both print and online publications, as well as academics and curators. The contributors that were used spanned the globe, with the only continent not having someone contribute being Antarctica, which is more than understandable. The list includes movies made starting in the year 2000 through now, though they note that 2001 would technically be the start of the century, mathematically speaking. So who came out on top?

The top ten is very much a mixed bag of movies that many movie buffs would definitely expect, and some very interesting surprises. Somewhat surprisingly, not so much to be in the top ten but to take the top spot overall, was David Lynch's Mulholland Drive. Perhaps even more surprising was the number two spot, which went to the Chinese drama In The Mood for Love, which was directed by Kar Wai-Wong. While it is a very well-regarded movie, it is not one that is talked about nearly as much as some of the other entries on the list. Rounding out the top five was Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will Be Blood, Hayao Miyazaki's animated masterpiece Spirited Away and Richard Linklater's incredibly ambitious Boyhood.

Perhaps not surprisingly at all, the list has quite a few divisive movies included from top to bottom. Movies like Holy Motors, The Tree of Life and The Master placed very high, despite the feeling from many outside of the critical community that those movies aren't quite as beloved as something like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which placed very high on the list, landing in the number six spot. Other divisive movies that made the list a little lower down were Steven Spielberg's A.I. Artificial Intelligence at number 83, and Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers at number 74.

While many of the movies included on the list were independent movies and the typical Oscar-nominated, award season movies, there were actually quite a few blockbusters among the top 100. Least surprisingly, George Miller's beloved modern day action spectacle Mad Max: Fury Road placed very high, landing at number 19. Christopher Nolan's superhero epic The Dark Knight also did very well, placing at number 33. Nolan also had another one of his blockbusters place reasonably high up, with Inception coming in at 51.

Interestingly enough, there was a three-way tie for the number 100 spot, with Carlos, Requiem for a Dream and Toni Erdmann, all barely sneaking into the list.
