Friday, February 18 by Amber Grey

Drama is often a misread genre of film that some believe is full of self-truths and being highly uncomfortable but we have found 10 most famous drama movies of all time that would make everyone think differently. This list is compiled of 10 drama movies in which some of are old classics and some are new.

  1. "The Godfather" (1972). Based on Mario Puzo's novel of the same name, this film, perhaps the most famous gangster  film of all-time was not initially well-received. But over time, it has not only made an impact on the film industry but has made its way into pop culture, thanks to Marlon Brando with his "I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse" speech.
  2. "Gone With The Wind" (1939). With this three-hour epic, people say you are not a true movie lover until you've experienced "Gone With The Wind" and we're inclined to agree. Not to mention, the love story between Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara rivals "Titanic"'s Jack and Rose any day.
  3. "Lawrence of Arabia" (1962). Based on the life of T.E. Lawrence and his experiences in Arabia during World War I, this epic film is considered to be one of the greatest films in history.
  4. "Casablanca" (1942). What can we not say about "Casablanca" that has not been said already? It's famous for being one of the most romantic movies. It's also famous for its iconic lines such as the improvised, "Here's looking at you kid" and the last line of the film, "Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship."
  5. "Citizen Kane" (1942). At the blossoming age on 24, cinematic genius Orson Welles created his masterpiece in the drama "Citizen Kane" which the American Film Institute claims to be the best film of all time.
  6. "Pulp Fiction" (1994). This super-cool film told in vignettes put director Quentin Tarantino on the map for being an inventive and iconic director full of style.
  7. "Forest Gump" (1994). This film has not only become a famous drama movie but also a classic in its own right. Oscar winner Tom Hanks plays Forrest Gump, a man who despite his mental difficulties is able to to live, love and inspire people.
  8. "12 Angry Men" (1957). The brilliant directing style of Sydney Lumet generates a visceral effect for us in which we increasingly feel like one of the jury members stuck in the tiny hot room.
  9. "American Beauty" (1999). Directed by Sam Mendes and features an all-star cast including Kevin Spacey, Annette Bening, Thora Birch and Chris Cooper. When Lester (Spacey) has a midlife crisis, his family and their neighbors' tangles of secrets and "other sides" start to unravel, revealing more than they would care to. This film digs into middle-class suburbia with revealing themes of materialism, sex and self-liberation.
  10. "The Breakfast Club" (1985).  With the delicate attention director John Hughes gave to this "coming-of-age" film, Hughes and his Brat Pack made a famous dramatic film that has been passed down from one generation to another for everybody to identify and sympathize with the pains of growing up.
