Generation Z

The good, the bad, the ugly, the pretty. Portraits of a still young generation, just starting to mature and get shown on screen.

The titles selected have nothing to do with their overall score or quality. Simply going with films I know.

Films set in ambiguous time periods such as The Myth of the American Sleepover/Genesis/Beach Rats/Mean Dreams/It Follows can't be quite counted as portrayal of generation z and therefore aren't part of this list.

This is not intended to be a complete and definitive list, suggestions are still welcome!
