The Good Films in recent years (2000-2016)

Each year thousands of films are made all over the world, majority by Hollywood and Bollywood, but only a handful of them could be considered as good enough films from an artistic, technical, significance and influential points of view. The following is a short list of such good films that not many won any awards, like the above list of great films, and also not included some awarded films by different festivals or agencies. Unfortunately recognition of good and great films have become political as well and are focused often on the subject of the story than the process of the filmmaking, so the recognition and the awards usually goes to the trend of the time and day than the real art of filmmaking!
