10 perfect movies to watch on Netflix before 2024

As the year draws to a close, bidding farewell to 2023 also means bidding adieu to some cinematic treasures on Netflix. Whether you crave mind-bending tales or laugh-out-loud comedies, these films are the ideal companions to bid farewell to the old year as you welcome the new year. 

You can immerse yourself in a world of unparalleled narratives and cinematic brilliance, savouring every frame before the curtain falls on 2023. Let these cinematic masterpieces set the stage for the year ahead—which we know will be a mix of the good and the morally grey!

BlacKkKlansman and Get Out stand as powerful reflections on racial tensions in America. Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman presents the true story of an African American detective infiltrating the Ku Klux Klan, using dark humour and suspense to shed light on the persisting challenges of racism. Jordan Peele’s Get Out, a groundbreaking horror-thriller, delves into the subtleties of racial discrimination in modern-day America while delivering a spine-tingling experience.

But if you are in the mood for some tortured genius drama, A Beautiful Mind and The Social Network are ideal. Ron Howard’s A Beautiful Mind follows the journey of a brilliant mathematician grappling with mental illness, offering an inspiring story of resilience. David Fincher’s The Social Network still stands out as a contemporary drama that dissects the complexities of human relationships in the era of social media. Directed by, the film delves into the creation of Facebook, which has now grown into the behemoth we call Meta.

But if this is too heavy, then you can always shift to Sofia Coppola’s dreamy ennui. Lost in Translation beautifully captures the essence of fleeting connections and the beauty of human relationships in the backdrop of Tokyo’s vibrant landscapes. Then, you can pivot to the musical and visual splendour that takes centre stage in La La Land. Directed by Damien Chazelle, the film pays homage to classic Hollywood musicals while capturing the vibrant energy of contemporary Los Angeles.

Epic stories of triumph and tragedy unfold in Gladiator (2000) and Jaws (1975). Ridley Scott’s Gladiator takes viewers to ancient Rome, where the quest for vengeance and redemption plays out against a visually stunning and emotionally charged backdrop. Meanwhile, Steven Spielberg’s classic Jaws remains a cinematic masterpiece that defined the summer blockbuster, exploring the tension between man and nature.

Challenging conventional storytelling and exploring the darker realms of morality, The Killing of a Sacred Deer presents a psychological thriller that lingers in the mind. Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, the film is captivating with its unsettling atmosphere. While you wait for Poor Things to come to streaming or at a theatre near you, regale in this Lanthimos gem.

Lastly, the coming-of-age story, Call Me By Your Name, directed by Luca Guadagnino, might be for those who are nursing a lonely heart. Set against the scenic landscapes of Italy, the film beautifully captures the nuances of love and desire as Sufjan Stevens’s heartwrenching “Visions of Gideon” plays out Elio’s heartbreak.
