Conversation is an art that’s dying very fast. In this age of digital revolution, people hardly have time to engage in a meaningful conversation. That’s why the movies in this list need to be cherished because who knows if great conversations would start vanishing from movies as well. Movies of two filmmakers — Woody Allen and Richard Linklater — figure prominently on this list and the reason is very simple: both of them are great writers who are masters at writing engaging dialogues and observations about life and therefore they make great films about conversations. Here is the list of top movies about conversations (i.e. conversational movies) ever. You can some of these best controversial movies on Netflix, Hulu, YouTube or Amazon Prime.
10. Coffee and Cigarettes (2004)
A comic series of short vignettes build on one another to create a cumulative effect, as the characters discuss things as diverse as caffeine popsicles, Paris in the ’20s, and the use of nicotine as an insecticide–all the while sitting around sipping coffee and smoking cigarettes.

9. My Dinner with Andre (1981)
Theater director Andre Gregory meets his old friend actor/playwright Wallace Shawn at an upscale New York restaurant to catch up on each other’s lives. Gregory has travelled the world in search of alternate methods of creative and spiritual expression. Shawn plays straight man (and devil’s advocate) in this unusual conversation and reminds Gregory of the more down-to-earth pleasures of New York life. Two differing opinions, but one engaging conversation. This film is a little gem waiting to be discovered.
