Best Slow Paced Movies

There's a huge number of action movie fans .All the action movies usually become famous quickly .But not always only action and fast paced movies are good .There have been many great movies which are slow paced .

Slow paced doesn't mean that movies have to be long .Like 3 or 4 hours .Even a movie of 1 hour and 30 minutes can also be slow paced .Slow paced means the whole movie is running slowly .The story is progressing slowly.

Note:Some may disagree with me that some movies here aren't slow .But all these movies seem to be slow paced to me .So feel free to say anything.Correct me if I am wrong somewhere.Cross out the movies on dishonorable mention if you don't like them.

And also add your favorite slow paced movies .
