30 Movies That Are Unlike Anything You've Seen Before

"The word unique has to be one of the most overused descriptors in show business; if every movie that got touted as one-of-a-kind by its marketing team actually was, there'd be no further complaints about Hollywood creativity. But every once in a while, I'll have a cinematic experience that feels genuinely unprecedented, when a work plays with the medium and its modes of storytelling in ways I didn't think possible. The 30 movies I've gathered below—all of which are available to watch online—are singular, whether they're experimental documentaries, visionary works of animation, or labyrinthine epics. Each is unforgettable, and a reminder of cinema's potential to flout narrative convention, subvert visual traditions, and find new ways to express timeless themes."
