Cinema seems to be regressing into a phase that only believes in making sequels, prequels or adaptations. A majority of the films being released these days seem to follow that trend and very few original ideas appear to get the green light. Making sequels is not necessarily a bad thing, and can in fact be quite enriching if the story demands it. There are plenty of amazing trilogies that have been made around the world that utilize cinema’s ability to continue telling stories in fractions. Here is a list of 10 of the best trilogies from around the planet.
The Godfather Trilogy
This epic gangster saga is possibly the greatest one ever told. It follows the exploits of one family and their strict code, even at the face of adversities and conflicts. The Godfather Trilogy is truly a masterpiece in story-telling and acting.
Trilogy Of Faith
Ingmer Bergman isn’t just one of the best Swedish directors of all-time, but he is also considered one of the most influential directors to have ever lived. His surrealist style comes into play beautifully in the ‘Trilogy of Faith’, one of the best trilogies ever made. The three films under this banner include ‘Through a Glass Darkly’, ‘Winter Light’ and ‘The Silence’. The films aren’t connected with one another by any character or incidents, but are instead connected thematically by faith and spiritual crisis.
