What it’s about: In a plague-ridden future, a prisoner is sent back in time to prevent the devastating spread of a disease. However, his constant foretelling of certain disaster gets him detained in a psychiatric facility, which eventually causes him to question his own sanity. In 2015, a TV adaptation of 12 Monkeys aired, so you should check that out too!
Why I liked it: I had to watch this a few times before I figured out what was going on, but to be fair, I was much younger then! This dystopian movie mixes elements of sci-fi and thriller, but somehow it all works. Also, the performances are excellent throughout.
Starring: Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis, Madeleine Stowe.
Where to watch: BBC iPlayer (UK), HBO Max (US).
