It’s taken me a long time to watch all these movies and I have watched even more but it wasn’t worth mentioning them. These were the best ones I could recommend for reasons of pure entertainment or pure artistry or pure realism. Treat some as completely stupid and goofy. Treat others as serious in nature. Treat others as simplistic. I obviously have a range of genre interests. My top three were Hustlers, The Skin I Live In, and Money Monster.
