The 55 Best Movie Musicals of All Time, Ranked According to IndieWire

From "In The Heights" and "Moulin Rouge!" to "Funny Face" and "West Side Story," these titles show the height and incredible range of the genre. The musical sometimes feels like a relic of a long-dead Hollywood studio system, but it remains a genre that captures movies' ability to create story worlds that move freely between reality and fantasy. The worst examples come from filmmakers who give license to music, color, and movement to run amok; the best transcend artifice and integrate songs that become expressions of pure character emotion. Musicals offer endless possibilities, but success demands a complete mastery of the medium.
