The Contenders: Page 2

21 Gandhi

It is incredible how he managed to fight out the independence of India - MatrixGuy

It's a excellent movie. Shows the struggle of independance and father of nation in a religious terrorism

22 The Passion of the Christ

The single most important event in history, portrayed very well. Whether you're one of us believers, or a not believer, Christianity has shaped the world for 2000 years. - davidthenurse

if you see this movie, you will know how He loves you - rock2metal

23 The Great Escape

A hilarious movie about world war 2. Fairly accurate too. It's pretty surprising how it's a comedy about a horrible prison camp.

This is an AMAZING movie. I first saw it when I was about 9. Every since then, I've loved it!!

27 A Beautiful Mind

Great movie! Russel Crowe is one of the best actors in the present time!

28 Full Metal Jacket
29 Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
30 Pirate Radio

Also known as The Boat that Rocked, this was set in the 1960s, a time when the BBC banned rock and roll on the airwaves so these pirate radio stations smuggled in the tunes. - jezza0

This was the true story about regular British guys who caused a rebelion against the goverment and the BBC by airing rock and roll on boats.

Bill Nighy, Chris O'Dowd, Gemma Arteton, Nick Frost and Jack Davenport are only part of this ensemble comedy.

Funny yet accurate at the same time.

32 Raging Bull
33 Savior

Probably the saddest film I've ever seen but I love this movie so much. It has real emotions, feelings and... tears - Irina2932

34 Fahrenheit 9/11
35 Bonnie and Clyde
36 The Hurt Locker
37 The Exorcist
38 Alexander

One of the best hero, life, passion, achievements, dreams...
Conquer the world...

39 In the Realm of the Senses
40 Life Is Beautiful

This is a really funny yet sad movie about a Jewish Italian family sent to a concentration camp during the Holocaust. The father, played by the movie's director Roberto Benigni (a big name in the Italian film industry), drives the story with his remarkable sense of humor that persists to guide his family through this time of hopelessness.

I agree that this one should be in the top 10. A very classy way to approach a difficult topic. Shows the power of the human spirit and ability to survive even in the worst of situations.

A great albeit controversial movie. By the way, Fahrenheit 911 is not based on history.

I love main hero - the father. It's so great to save child's life with such nice sharme as he did. Kind and emotional movie) one of my favorites
