The Best on Screen Kisses

IMO

  • Spider-Man

    1.Spider-Man

    ★★★★

    They kiss, upside down. In the rain. Partially masked. After he saved her from some thugs. It's just bleedingly iconic and a still frame alone from this scene tells you everything you will need to know.

  • E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

    2.E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

    Classic Hollywood magic distilled to Spielberg childhood wonder. A strange and beautiful scene all at once. It also helps he has John Williams to score this scene into perfection.

  • The Godfather: Part II

    3.The Godfather: Part II

    Like Judas to Jesus, this kiss is all about betrayal and it's all the more iconic for it.

  • Notorious

    4.Notorious

    Not only the most subtly erotic one on this list, but also important for breaking new ground in cinema with the production code of the time.

  • Sid & Nancy

    5.Sid & Nancy

    Mostly thanks in part to Roger Deakins. Making everything these characters stand for just as beautiful and lovely as they feel when they are together. It's even on the poster.

  • Moonlight

    6.Moonlight

    ★★★★★

    Young love, by the beach. Barry Jenkins spins an instant classic here

    10.The Kiss

    The one that started it all
