Conspiracy movies are those in which there is some paranoid element that leads us to conclude that the world as we experience it is not the world as it is. It often features unpleasant things which usually happen concerning government actions, but not always confined to this, planned by people who want to cause difficulties and those things do not occur without the control of such parties. The conspiracy movie genre has been significant since the post-war Hollywood Cinema. The high-tech conspiracy tale has its roots in the 1970s, which saw a great wave of movies about assassins, surveillance, secret governments, and corporate groups.
The characters in these movies are often subjected to tense situations. It helps in exploring our anxiety about the nature of the world and the potential for action in the face of events that are beyond our control. With that said, here’s the list of top conspiracy movies ever. You can stream some of these best conspiracy movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
12. Conspiracy Theory (1997)
Featuring the cult combination of ‘Lethal weapon’, Richard Conner and Mel Gibson, ‘Conspiracy Theory’ is a solid, but formulaic thriller saved heavily by its leads. The film tells the story of a man who is obsessed with conspiracy theories, and the dangers he has to face when one of his theories accidentally prove to occur. The logic behind many of the occurrences in ‘Conspiracy Theory’ doesn’t quite add up and the main draw to this film has little to do with the coherency of its plot. Seemingly there are obvious attempts to inject both romance and comedy into it, but both fail rather flat. Although it has massive potential and is well-paced, it falls far from being a great one because of the jumbled visions. Still it is a watchable one, if you are interested in conspiracies.
