The 10 Best Movies for Programmers [2022]

1. Hackers (1995)

Hackers was also released in 1995, and while it didn’t have much of an impact on its release, it has since gained a massive cult following as one of the best movies ever made about programming and technology in general.

2. Office Space (1999)

While it might not be a technical movie in any sense, Office Space is an excellent movie for programmers. It’s a low-budget comedy that has a lot of heart and deals with what seems like impossible problems in an office environment.

3. Her (2013)

In the blink of an eye, what destination would you want to find yourself at? This movie brings to life the belief that time is brief and we should make the most of it.

4. The Imitation Game (2014)

The Imitation Game is a 2014 historical thriller that follows the real-life British cryptanalyst Alan Turing, who managed to crack the Nazi Enigma code.

5. Ex Machina (2015)

This movie was released in 2015. Since it’s about AI programming it’s perfect for developers. The ending of Ex Machina will forever haunt me as one of my favorite movies to watch on Halloween (or any day, really).
