70 Stalin

such an incredible film focusing on the life of one of the most intriguing an evil men of all time incredible acting espicially from robert duvall and amzing score taken from alexander nevsky make tis one of the most incredible films ever but it's not asx good as some of the others here namely Hotaru no Haka wich is the sadest film of all time. - alucard

71 Cinderella Man

Crowe does a great job of playing James Braddock the legendary boxer during the depression

This is should be in the top five, any place less than that would be unfair.
One of the best I have ever seen. Don't miss it. Martin crowe is outstanding as james J braddock.

72 The Last Samurai

Pictures perfectly the atmosphere and circumstances of the end of the Samurai at the begining of the Meiji Restoration time. - alexa

Actually this Movie express about the identity of Japanes in the past time, each and every country need to produce their own movie which should be base on their identity, more over with globalization sametimes people are forgot about their own culturee so through the movie can remain them about who they are or who we are?

73 Black Book

Brilliant film, its not been too glamorised but real in the way it is portrayed and shows the risks involved in being a spy, these people were very brave and lived life on the edge.

74 Once Upon a Time In China

Great movie detailing the gradual downfall of the Qing dynasty, the chaotic and hard times of the Chinese people and rights of the latter to take matters into their own hands, as well as their rights to self determination when the imperial government refused to do much to either protect the country or the lives and rights of the people, forcing many patriotic citizens to come forward to do whatever was necessary to protect their homes and motherland.

75 Tombstone

Much more recent history than most of these others, but still a very good historical movie about many of America's historical people. - heather

76 In the Name of the Father
77 Master And Commander: The Far Side Of The World
78 12 Years a Slave
