Examples:

Chang-dong Lee's Burning is a confident slow-burn mystery. It recalls Hitchcock, Antonioni's Blow-Up and, according to one critic, Jack Nicholson in The Pledge.
Anthony Scott Burns' Come True recalls John Carpenter's The Prince of Darkness, Hideo Nakata's Ringu and David Cronenberg's Videodrome.
Jennifer Kent's The Babadook rekindled our interest in contemporary horror after years of remakes and retreads. Its motifs have been used in films such as Lights out, His House and Under the Shadow.
Days of Heaven from 1978 is Terrence Malick's pastoral masterpiece. Which films are trying to recapture its magic? Critics infer a lineage to 2020's Nomadland and many others.
Bacurau by Brazilian directors Juliano Dornelles and Kleber Mendonça Filho had critics referencing films like Wake in Fright, Mad Max and Seven Samurai.
Rose Glass' Saint Maud depicts loneliness in a way that recalls Taxi Driver but infuses the horror of Repulsion, Possession and Carrie.
Debra Granik's Leave no Trace shows the fringes of society, a father and daughter living off-grid and in the wild. What other films will it remind you of?
Alfred Hitchcock filmed and edited Rope to look like one continuous shot. The long takes and hidden stitches have persisted in cinema ever since, moving out of the chamber play and onto the battlefield in 1917.
Christopher Nolan's action thriller Tenet juggles temporal concepts, similar to his previous films - but also contains a nod to Casablanca.
