How do you define style in movies? Well, let’s first make it clear that it certainly doesn’t mean fashion — or for that matter just the visual presentation. I don’t know about others, but “style” in movies to me is all about how authentic and original a movie looks, feels and sounds. “Stylish” movies have deep imprints of their directors so much so that even one shot of the film should be enough to tell who its maker is.
Also, one common reaction to stylish movies you will hear is: “I haven’t ever seen anything like it”. I know “style” may mean different things to different people, but this list adheres to my definition of “style”. With that said, here is the list of most stylish movies of this century.

But even if we keep visuals aside, ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ still feels like a work of a craftsmen who very well knew how to leave an everlasting impression on viewer’s mind.
