6. Blue Is The Warmest Color
Yes, the "three-hour, French lesbian movie." But anyone who has absorbed the complete vision of Abdellatif Kechiche’s Palme d’Or winner knows you couldn’t sacrifice a single minute of the exquisitely beautiful yet unavoidably painful trip taken by young lovers Adele (Adèle Exarchopoulos) and Emma (Léa Seydoux).

Placed right next to The Broken Circle Breakdown, it’s interesting to note how both movies discuss – from different angles – the dangers we face any time we open our hearts to another person. Love is nearly impossible to capture on screen, especially between actors paid to convince us of a chemistry. Exarchopoulos and Seydoux manage just that, courtesy of some graphic (graphic!) sex scenes… and several equally effective, passionate conversations defending the power of attraction. Blue is a difficult journey for both the characters and the audience, but one that’s so honest with every calculated step, you won’t soon forget it.
