After I got access to Netflix and Amazon Prime, I was looking out for good movie recommendations. After asking friends on Facebook and getting funny recommendations, I browsed the internet and stumbled upon a good list of Top 10 American movies across different genres.
The American Film Institute has published a list of Top Ten movies under different genres such as Animation, Courtroom drama, Epic, Fantasy, Gangster, Mystery, Romantic Comedy, Science Fiction, Sports, and Western.
The Top 100 American movies of all time is given here. This list includes movies such as Citizen Kane, The God Father, Casablanca, Raging Bull, and Singin' in the Rain. The movie 'Citizen Kane' has been on the number one spot of the Best 100 American films of all time for quite a long time. But I was not able to locate 'Citizen Kane' on Netflix or Amazon Prime. Maybe, it is available in other streaming sites. There was also news that the movie 'Vertigo' has become the No 1 movie as per some recent polls. But the change is not reflected in AFI website. Vertigo is available in Netflix.
The links for the Top Ten Movies in each category is given below.
