There are movies that take time to build up like a slow burning fire. Whereas there are others that are short and impactful. Typically such movies run for less than 90 minutes. But within just 90 minutes, they make a lasting impact. Here is the list of top short and impactful movies.
1. Dunkirk (2017)
Christopher Nolan gave different dimension to a war film with his latest film based on Dunkirk Evacuation of World War II. With the help of astonishing visuals and thunderous background score, he created an atmosphere in which the audience felt that they are in that particular war zone. The story is presented in 3 parts with each part having different timeline and the non-linear narrative combines the different timelines at the end to give a spectacular climax. Nolan made the war film in his own style of filmmaking. The runtime of the film was quite less than a typical war film and the minimal dialogue added to the tremendous impact of the film on the viewers.
2. The Usual Suspects (1995)
Bryan Singer’s crime mystery drama film with an ensemble cast has to be one of the finest examples of a film that engaged the audience with its gripping narrative. In its runtime of 106 minutes, it keeps the viewer engrossed throughout and shocks them with a plot twist which is considered to be the finest in the cinematic history.
