Apocalypse Now (1971)
Francis Ford Coppola moved the story of Joseph Conrad's novella Heart of Darkness from Congo to Vietnam and Cambodia during the Vietnam War and told the story of Captain Benjamin L. Willard (Martin Sheen). The film is about moments of horror, madness or the nightmare that war unfolds. Apocalypse Now has become one giant Hollywood legend. Sight and Sound named it as the best film of the last 25 years It won the Palme d'Or at Cannes too.

Singin' In The Rain (1952)
The mere mention of the film can bring a smile to the face of any film lover cutting across all age groups. When released, it received decent reviews but soon faded from pubic memory. Years later, it became one of the most celebrated American musicals. The film makes a parody of Hollywood's trouble in the transition from silent films to talkies, but the wafer thin plot has everything from romance, comedy, songs and jolly good dancing.

Pulp Fiction (1994)
While the audience was still recuperating from the shock and awe of Reservoir Dogs two years earlier, Quentin Tarantino set the screen on fire with an all-star cast (John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth) brought together by intertwining four tales of violence and redemption featuring two mob hitmen, a boxer, a gangster’s wife and a pair of diner bandits. The postmodern masterpiece is more than good enough to win the Oscar for Best Picture.

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
Stanley Kubrick was truly the man who knew too much. No other director has delved into more genres than him in film history successfully and '2001: A Space Odyssey' remains one of his greatest achievements. While Fritz Lang's groundbreaking silent film Metropolis dealt with urban dystopia, 2001 took it to the space but made the journey spiritual and meditative. The idea, technique and treatment of an experimental was brought into this big budget studio film and Kubrick encompassed all other previous achievements in sci-fi genre. He didn't explain much to the audience and let them free in the realm of experience
