A few years prior to Doctor Zhivago, Lean helmed a film of such breath-taking scale that it’s not only one of the most grand of all time, but one of the greatest movies period. It is the complex story of a British military officer during WWI whose sense of nationalism was often at odds with his moral compass. The enormity and beauty of the film’s cinematography are matched only by the film’s near four-hour runtime.
Resurrection should be here as well as
The Kings Speech.
The real miss is somehow having so many films about Roman Republic/Empire, and somehow miss Cleopatra. That's a Hollywood Lush Budget Period Piece bar none, and the making of it is a period piece of 1960's A-list Hollywood itself.
Pick one Godfather and replace it with Cleopatra = Much better list.
Wonderful Cinematography, great cast, awful movie.
Walked out after viewing about 50%, need I say more?
Good list but, for me, missing a few... Rob Roy, raise the red lantern, master and commander, glory, angels and insects, impromptu, amadeus, cinema paradisio, pale rider, the big red one, I include these last two because I believe that they are more important as period pieces than as western or war pictures.
