If you love drama movies you might find that the really good ones come and go and many of them don’t measure up to your expectations. One of the best ways of finding great drama movies to watch is to look to the past. There have been many great drama movies that present day movie watchers do not take the opportunity advertising agencies to watch and missing out of some of these would truly be a crime. Drama movie fans will love the variety that they can find from going into past movies to find some truly great movies to watch.
Here are some suggestions for drama movies of the past that will renew your love of movies:
Citizen Kane (1941): This Orson Welles movie features the wealthy newspaper tycoon, Charles Foster Kane, as the subject of a newspaper article. With flashbacks, the viewer sees his life through the memories of those who knew him. Many consider this to be one of the best movies ever made.
The Godfather Collection (1972, 1974, 1990): This trilogy stars Marlon Brando and Al Pacino in some of their most well known roles. It is a portrayal of mob life and is filled with memorable lines, detailed scenes, and some great action. The first two of the trilogy are better than the last but all three are the kind of drama movies that fans will watch over and over again.
The Searchers (1956): When it comes to culture clash and drama movies about racism, John Ford set the bar in this movie. It takes place between 1868 and 1873 in Texas when a white girl gets kidnapped by the Comanches. The girl’s uncle and his friend search for her for many years but what they find is not what they were expecting.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975): Jack Nicholson and Danny Devito do some great acting in this movie about a man who is sent to an institution. He might not be as crazy as they think he his though and he has lots of fun getting other patients in trouble and stirring things up with the staff.
To Kill a Mockingbird (1962): When the daughter tells the story of her father being accused of rape in the 1930’s this story is given a view unlike other movies. The movie also brings a new perspective because the rape victim is a white girl and the accused is a black man. This is one of the acting roles that Gregory Peck was most well known for.
