A curated list of sci-fi films for the "thinking person"

The Sci-Fi Agenda is "the thinking person's guide to science fiction cinema" personally curated by Markus Amalthea Magnuson, a sci-fi film lover who caught search engine fatigue and wanted to create their own list. 

From the website: 

What the most mainstream lists of recommendations share is a tendency towards the least common denominator appeal. Films that stay in the middle and pacify the mind. It is my conviction that the thinking person often wants something more, something for both thought and senses; the visceral viewing of cerebral cinema.

I don't necessarily seek out sci-fi, but most of my favorite movies tend to be sci-fi — Eternal Sunshine, Ex Machina, Open Your Eyes, Donnie Darko — and I'm happy to find them on this list, as well as discover a few films I've never heard of. 

The list is not really sorted, but interestingly you can filter by movies that pass the Bechdel test — which I learned is a measure of the representation of women in fiction. In order to meet it, two female characters must talk to each other about something other than a man.
