Awesome Subway-Style Map to Some of the Best Movies Ever Made

Best Movies of All-Time Map

All across the Internet there's plenty of lists chronicling the best films from every decade, genre, director, actor, etc. Basically, you can search for the best movies with cameos from Rip Taylor and you'll probably find a list somewhere (Wayne's World 2 would be at the top). But some people like to get creative, and that's what David Honnorat did with The Best Movies of All-Time Map, a subway map presentation of the best movies in the history of cinema, with the tracks representing various genres from sci-fi to comedy, and even more specific categories like dramas about tolerance or masterpieces about show business. It's huge!

Here's The Best Movies of All-Time Map from Vodkaster (click for a much larger version):

Best Movies of All-Time Map

One of my favorite things about this map, besides the intricacy and sheer number of movies, is how some are even part of two different tracks, just like a real subway map. WALL-E is at the end of the romance line, but in the middle of the animation one. However, I'm not sure I agree with No Country for Old Men being included on the gangster line. Plus, I'm sure there will be some disagreement about some of the films from recent years included on the list. One that I find strange is the inclusion of Clint Eastwood's Changeling, which I don't really consider to be among even his best work let alone all films. Thoughts?

    Kill Bill Vol 2 is in western and not Vol 1, this is pretty smoothly done. Including Bourne Ultimatum being the representative for the series. Also, am I just not seeing Jurassic Park or Inception? I think Inception would make a nice intersection with sci-fi and romance which are so close to crossing, (at least it felt like that to me). Alternatively, it could arguably intersect with mystery/crime. Glad The Prestige made it, though. Fantasy seems so short. Also I'd put First Blood into action. Other things will keep coming to me, I need to resist the urge to constantly update this comment.

    Awesome map! But I'm trying to figure out why The Changeling is on here and some much more acclaimed films are not. The map maker must be a huge Eastwood fan.
  • Obviously he should call it "my favourite movies"

    While I'm not a fan of the representation on a purely aesthetic level, many of those films are truly great and deserve to be there.

    It's not any list.It's a previous Imdb's Top 250. That's why it has Changeling on it. Also, it has been done long time ago (2009). But anyway, I like your website and keep doing the videoblogs
