Movies With Unreliable Narrators [ranked]

Perhaps the greatest power of a storyteller is to hook us into a narrative, only to gaslight and misdirect our attention. To the point where we question whose story is being told in the first place, and whether the events even happened at all!
All these films have one common message: never take what is shown to you at face value; the one telling you a story has a personal agenda! Objectivity is dead!
