Olivier Assayas Filmography Ranking Movies

“What are Olivier Assayas Best Movies?” We looked at all of Assayas’s directed filmography and ranked them against one another to answer that very question!

We took all of the movies directed by Olivier Assayas and looked at his Rotten Tomato Critic, Rotten Tomato User, Metacritic, Metacritic User, IMDB, and Letterboxd scores, ranking them against one another to see which movies came out on top. The movies are ranked in our list below based on which movies have the highest overall score between all 6 review sites in comparison with all of the other movies by the same director. The process is all very scientific with no flaws at all.

The full ranking chart is also included below the countdown on the bottom of the page. We will update the article if/when a new movie by Olivier Assayas is released. Although it probably won’t be immediate so the scores on each site have time to settle and aren’t overly influenced by the early, usually much more opinionated, users.

Happy Viewing!
