Best movie biographies
D. Roberts "Hadrian12"
The list author says: "The life & times of extraordinary folks, transposed to DVD."
"Terrific movie about perhaps the greatest musician to ever trod the Earth. Told thru the eyes of Mozart's arch-rival, .Antonio Salieri. Sets the standard for movie biographies."
Immortal Beloved (Special Edition)
"A wonderful companion to AMADEUS that tells the story of the world's next great composer: Ludwig Van Beethoven. Gary Oldman's finest performance of his career."
"A bizarre movie about a bizarre (but gifted) composer. Brooding, introspective, almost Kafkaesque. Just like Mahler's music!"
Wagner: The Complete Epic [VHS]
"Excessively long, yes. But also full of grandeur and majesty. Hey, sounds like Wagnerian opera!"
"A delightful film about the relationship between Frederick Chopin & George Sand."
Surviving Picasso [VHS]
"A lesser known but worthwhile flick starring none other than the great Anthony Hopkins as Pablo Picasso."
In Love and War
"Not a great movie, but one which details the time period of Earnest Hemingway's life that was the impetus for his novel A FAREWELL TO ARMS. The film stars the lovely Sandra Bullock."
"An accurate (for the most part) portrayal of a gladiator who dared defy the might of Rome. Has been hailed by movie buffs and classical history scholars alike."
"George C. Scott becomes George Patton in this classic of a World War II hero."
"A well done rendition of the last Pharaoh of Egypt (not to mention a descendent of one of Alexander's greatest Generals, Ptolemy)."
"Centers around Claudius, but tells a whole lot about the 1st 4 emperors of Rome: Caesar Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula & Claudius. Did someone mention scandals???"
"A tremendous portrayal of the great William Wallace. One of Mel Gibson's most impressive performances to date."
"A film about one of the most hated & ruthless men in all of history. Yep, I'm talking top-20 most hated material here."
A Beautiful Mind (Two-Disc Awards Edition)
"Yes, it is a fabrication of Nash's life, but it's also a very well-done fabrication. See the movie for the drama of his life. Read the book for his full story."
Shakespeare in Love (Miramax Collector's Series)
"Not a movie for accurate depictions of a biography, but what a concept! A Shakespearian-style comedy about an epoch in the Bard' s life. Terrific!"
Fat Man And Little Boy [VHS]
"Dwight Schultz is captivating as Robert Oppenheimer. The film covers the politics, neurosis, paranoia, ethical controversy and 2nd guessing of the Manhattan Project."
Tom & Viv [VHS]
"Willen Dafoe is superb as the sagacious Thomas Stearns Elliot."
"Anthony Hopkins in his memorable portryal of the great Oxford author, Clyde Staples Lewis."
"A wonderful movie that details Richard P. Feynman's love that he shared with his first wife."
Copenhagen (PBS Hollywood Presents)
"Based on a play by Michael Frayn, it re-enacts one of the most controversial private meetings ever between 2 renowned scientists."
Leonard Bernstein - Reaching for the Note
"A terrific documentary on the life of what was perhaps the greatest conductor of the 20th century."
"Although very little of Sylvia Plath's poetry is recited, Gwen Paltrow still becomes the troubled poet and makes this one a keeper."
"An instant classic written in the spirit of SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE. Utterly brilliant!"
"The true story of a Venetian courtesan during the time of the Inquisition. Unforgettable."
"The story of one of the greatest astronomers of antiquity, Hypatia of Alexandria"
