The Best Murder-Mystery Movies to Test Your Sleuthing Skills to the Max (Timeout)

"Other movies may grab your eyeballs and rattle your eardrums or manipulate your heartstrings, but no other genre engages your mind and pulls you through the screen quite like a murder mystery. It's the most immersive cinematic experience, in part because most of us have solved many ourselves, whether it was on a game board or in a role playing dinner party with friends. Mostly, though, it's simply human nature to see a puzzle and try to piece it together. No matter how charismatic the sleuth up on the screen is, we always see them as a proxy for ourselves – and we always try to one-up them by figuring things out before they do. Murder mysteries have been part of filmdom stretching back to the 1930s, but up until recently, the classic whodunnit felt woefully old-fashioned. But over the last two years, murder mysteries have steadily made a comeback. We felt it was time to round up the genre's classics, along with its hidden gems. Here are 40 of the best." - timeout.com
