We brought ten cult movies that you need to watch on this list. They are films of the genres of drama, science fiction, comedy, suspense and terror, of the most diverse decades, working with engaging and, of course, unforgettable plots for those who have the pleasure of watching. We try to include, that is, from better known and celebrated works to some little known pearls, but worshipped by small and faithful groups. Let’s go to the list!
10º – Wake in Fright (Ted Kotcheff, 1971)A teacher from a small Australian city decides to spend his vacation in Sydney. However, in the middle of his trip to the city, he decides to stop for a rest in another unknown small town, called Bundanyabba, known for its happy inhabitants as Yabba. In the place – always under intense and relentless heat – the man ends up getting involved with gambling in a bar, losing all his money that he would use to get to and live in Sydney. Well, it is from this moment on that we will follow the ordeal of the character who finds himself trapped in Yabba, a place seen as heaven for its inhabitants, but faced as worse than hell by the poor teacher. A supreme masterpiece of Australian cinema in the 1970s, ‘Wake in Fright’ is a nightmare in the form of a film, exploring one of the most cruel and terrifying journeys of a character ever seen in the seventh art. A film to be tasted in all its strangeness during its 109 minutes of projection.
9º – Brazil (Terry Gilliam, 1985)In the future, a man involved in insubstantial bureaucratic work finds himself persecuted by the authorities after an error. Owner of one of the most spectacular futures buildings ever exhibited in the seventh art, ‘Brazil’ is a charming film. Best film of director Terry Gilliam’s career.
8º – They Live (John Carpenter, 1988)An ordinary man ends up facing sunglasses that allow him to see the real nature of people, coming to realize that the world was being taken by aliens. Now, it will be up to him to try to prevent humanity from disappearing. Belonging to John Carpenter’s fantastic cinema, ‘They Live’ goes beyond the sense of science fiction to which he governs his events, tangendo voracious critiques of the empty paths followed by human beings.
