Hi, I go by Jillian — and I’m a Medium beginner. (This is, truth be told, my absolute first story!)
I have a blog on WordPress called The Exemplary Film Association, however I’m wandering into this local area in order to interface with additional perusers, scholars, and film fans (exemplary etc.).
For of presentation, I thought I’d share my own rundown of the main ten best movies I’ve seen such a long ways in the course of my life. In the event that one picture merits 1,000 words, perhaps ten pictures (in addition to certain words) will let you know all that you really want to be aware of me.
Each film’s title is connected to its IMDb page. Perhaps you’ll find one that is perfect for your next film night.
Here we go (from #10 — the #1 best!)…
#1: The Best Story At any point Told (1965)
More an encounter than amusement, this film is nearly past examination — even to other scriptural stories. Its masterfulness is top notch (stop it anytime, and it seems to be a painting!), and the degree of profundity and detail in the story are unequaled. Each time I watch it, I notice a new thing.
Like most aggressively imaginative works, there are defects to a great extent. Each second may not land with the ideal effect, but rather the goal is in every case clear — and it is delightful.
Where to Watch: You can stream The Best Story At any point Told on YouTube, Pluto television, and Tubi for nothing (with promotions), or you can lease or buy it through Amazon.
#2: The Straight Story (1999)
I never thought a film about a person riding a lawnmower could so enchant!
In light of a genuine story, this film’s legend is absolutely one of a kind: a tranquil, older refined man who is sharp and savvy, and who challenges limits by embraced the best accomplishment of resourcefulness I’ve at any point seen!
Richard Farnsworth conveys the show, helped by a few similarly great supporting exhibitions and totally beautiful cinematography. Individuals around him are too particular to be in any way genuine, yet that line is rarely completely crossed. Furthermore, everything plays out like a story an elderly person would tell — somewhat sluggish, however brimming with bright subtleties and frank insight.
Where to Watch: You can stream The Straight Story on Disney+, or you can lease or buy it through Amazon.
#3: Lilies of the Field (1963)
This is a basic story told in a direct manner — yet it’s so lovely, it shimmers. I wouldn’t consider it a “great” film. However that truly doesn’t make any difference considering its heart, which simply radiates through the screen.
What’s more, it’s too great to be in any way viewed as just a nostalgic #1… There’s an enthusiastic energy that separates it, in addition to something different I can’t exactly name. Something blessed, I think.
Where to Watch: You can stream Lilies of the Field on YouTube, Pluto television, and Tubi for nothing (with promotions), or you can lease or buy it through Amazon.
#4: Walls (2016)
Whenever I first saw this film, the effect of its significance didn’t hit me until well after I left the theater. However, when it hit, it blew me away.
This is a really emotional film. In view of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play of similar name, its style feels a piece chatty and dramatic until you become acclimated to it, and there’s a tenacity and a hardness in all that discourse that makes it extreme to endure. In any case, simply stay with it, in light of the fact that the final venture is Strong — and the closure wouldn’t mean close to as much without all the aggravation persevered to arrive.
Where to Watch: You can transfer Walls on Amazon Prime Video, YouTube television, and Paramount+, or you can lease or buy it carefully through Amazon.
#5: Whistle Down the Breeze (1961)
This is an apparently basic film, however it’s loaded up with scriptural reference and surrenders more profound significance to understanding. By and by, I believe it’s a tale about the force of youngster like confidence — and how effectively such confidence can be made convoluted or degenerate.
Additionally eminent for its huge cast of amazingly regular non-entertainer youngsters (Hayley Plants being one of only a handful of exceptional with proficient involvement with the time), this film gives the most figuring out, balanced take a gander at the entire of experience growing up — and every one of the ups and downs of that phase of life — that I’ve at any point seen on screen.
Where to Watch: You can watch Whistle Down the Breeze on YouTube.
#6: A Trooper’s Story (1985)
A twisty yet close whodunit that makes bigger, nuanced focuses while settling its secret. The cast and the music are Ablaze — especially Patti LaBelle (!!!) and Larry Riley’s in-character melodic exhibitions. While they sing together, it’s an excessive amount of star-power for one screen!
Where to Watch: You can lease or buy An Officer’s Story through Amazon.
#7: Up the Down Flight of stairs (1967)
*This ought to be required survey for every trying instructor. (Also, it very well may be utilized as support/treatment for all current/formers ones, as well — staff and overseers included!)*
This film IS life in government funded schooling, particularly in a striving framework. Also, it’s immortally pertinent paying little heed to grade-level or climate. I showed essential grades in country networks, not ghetto secondary school, however I confronted a form of practically every issue introduced here.
Filling the school with non-proficient youngsters to go about as the understudies (and projecting a few in key jobs) was an especially virtuoso move that adds much more authenticity. This film some way or another finds some kind of harmony — it’s completely straightforward, yet still completely realistic. (The main explanation it’s not considerably higher on my rundown is on the grounds that it’s so consistent with life, it’s somewhat hard for me to watch.)
Where to Watch: You can lease or buy Up the Down Flight of stairs on Amazon.
#: The Hawker (1961)
In numerous ways, this one is a definitive. Its course and cinematography are the most fascinating; its characters are the most intricate. What’s more, it has Jackie Gleason in a rigorously emotional job, exhibiting with exceptionally restricted screen time why he should be known as The Incomparable One — shooting his own pool and working on a considerably higher plane than the remainder of the generally phenomenal cast.

Its style is amazing, and its profundity of detail and discourse on life are similarly as striking. Regardless of how frequently I watch it, I’m persuaded there’s even more there I’ve yet to see, as a matter of fact.
Where to Watch: You can lease or buy The Hawker on Amazon.
#2: The Condo (1960)
There’s nothing very like watching this story unfurl interestingly, sans spoiler. In the event that you’ve never seen this film, all I will say is this: don’t find out about it or investigate it prior to watching (it’s one of those movies where it’s ideal to be aware as little as conceivable going in), and don’t focus on any marking of it as a “lighthearted comedy” — in light of the fact that it’s far beyond that. It challenges classification.
As a matter of fact, the main mark that truly fits is “great.” This is an ideal film.
Where to Watch: You can transfer The Condo on freevee, YouTube, Pluto television, and Tubi free of charge (with promotions), or you can lease or buy it through Amazon.
#1: They Shoot Ponies, Isn’t that right? (1969)
This is the most complicated film I’ve at any point seen. Its reality is so finished and convincing that I’m dropped into it from the second the initial titles start, and I’m not pulled out until the end credits roll.
No detail is squandered. The characters feel like genuine individuals you can think often about. The cast is so contributed, it’s mind boggling. Regardless of where or on whom you place your concentration, you’ll see things that add to the experience. The story fits together like a riddle, and each second is a piece that implies something. Certain occasions are stunning, yet nothing happens that isn’t foreshadowed here and there.
From the littlest subtleties of its impeccably created world, to enormous thoughts regarding society and the human condition — this film says such a great amount in such unobtrusive ways.
Where to Watch: You can watch They Shoot Ponies, Isn’t that right? on YouTube, or you can purchase the DVD on Amazon.
*Bonus*: Playhouse 90’s Composition for a Heavyweight (1956)
This one couldn’t measure up reasonably to the others, since it’s a live teleplay. However, I love it so much, I need to incorporate it.
Out of this multitude of mind blowing films, this specific story and cast are my unequaled #1. What’s more, the sets and bearing make everything look shockingly genuine — a particularly amazing accomplishment for an early TV creation.
Everything attempts to maneuver you into its reality successfully to such an extent that even the normal traps of exemplary live television (somewhat grainy kinescope picture, a couple of flubbed lines, and camerawork that once in a while decapitates its subjects) aren’t actually diverting. A wonderful story, a heavenly cast, a total “film world” on a Television — and it was completely done LIVE. That is really magnificent.
Where to Watch: You can lease or buy Memorial for a Heavyweight carefully through Amazon.
