Science fiction is one of the most expansive genres in cinema, largely because of the countless subgenres that branch off of it. From time travel to post-apocalyptic to space opera, there’s bound to be a sci-fi film that appeals to even the pickiest of moviegoers, but the subgenre that’s spawned some of the more fascinating sci-fi flicks in recent memory is cyberpunk.
Combining themes of cybernetics and punk, cyberpunk features some of the most thought-provoking – and oftentimes terrifying – subject matter in regards to the state of humanity in the not-too-distant future. And while many passing sci-fi fans have likely seen a cyberpunk movie or two, perhaps without even realizing it, those specifically seeking out such films to expand their horizons could find themselves at a loss for where to start.
