The Best Sci-Fi Movies Of All Time

  The Best Sci-Fi Movies Of All Time From mind-bending heist movies ('Inception') to outer-space westerns ('Star Wars'), these superior science-fiction films are impossible to pigeonhole Our fascination with what the future might look like has made science-fiction a staple of cinema since the silent era. Georges Melies’s Trip To The Moon was a landmark moment in film way back in 1902, and filmmakers have been exploring stories of how science, technology and politics might intersect ever since; often with disturbing foresight.

The filmmaker, an executive producer on the Indian festival-winner " The Disciple ," explains why he's keen on supporting new As a Mexican filmmaker who makes movies with Hollywood money, Alfonso Cuarón is no stranger to conversations about diversity.

Alfonso Cuarón Orozco was born on November 28th in Mexico City, Mexico. From an early age, he yearned to be either a film director or an astronaut. However, he did not want to enter the army, so he settled for directing.

"He was part of most of Roma's process and I jumped to the opportunity to be part of the process of his second film 'The Disciple'. I believe Chaitanya is one of the most important new voices of contemporary cinema."

The movie, which will also screen at the Toronto International Film Festival, tells the story of Sharad Nerulkar, who has devoted his life to becoming an Indian classical music vocalist but starts to have doubts about his strive for perfection.

The movie is set in modern-day Mumbai.

Meanwhile, Netflix boss Ted Sarandos recently claimed Cuarón's 'Roma' paved the way for the success of Bong-Joon Ho's 'Parasite' at the 2020 Oscars.

He said: "I think 'Roma' had a lot to do with that for 'Parasite' this year.

"I think the idea that a foreign-language film had 10 Oscar nominations and won three, and the crossover awards categories for foreign-language film, I think really opened the door for 'Parasite' to be as successful as it was."
