8. Paterson

Adam Driver may have emerged into stardom with Girls and his turn as Kylo Ren in Star Wars, but Jim Jarmusch’s Paterson is where Driver’s talents shine brightest.

You’ll laugh and you’ll cry but after Paterson is finished, you’ll be heart warmed too.

A quiet observation of the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.

Steven Spielberg has one of the best filmographies in history but for many, the first Indiana Jones adventure is a cultural staple.

Raiders has it all.

John Hughes shaped 80s teen cinema multiple times but The Breakfast Club is where he struck gold.
