Call Me By Your Name
"Please call me by your name" is set in Italy in the 1980s. It tells the story of a 17-year-old boy living in rural Italy and a 24-year-old graduate student who was hired to fall in love. Assist the boy's archaeology Professor father. The yin-yang chemistry between timothee chalamet's shy scholar boy and Armie hammer's arrogant and confident graduate student is undeniable, and this drama movie is full of painful beauty and disturbing real moments. A real gem that makes chalamet a star.
Another example of a drama movie is not just its remembered gimmick. Yes, Sean Baker's groundbreaking drama movie about a trans prostitute looking for a pimp in Los Angeles was filmed entirely on the iPhone - but once you actually see oranges, you realize that the iPhone is not just a clever trick, but a way to let the story unfold intimately, sometimes uncomfortable to approach its characters. You feel that when you are with them, the result is both glorious and tragic chaos.
The Bridge on the River Kwai
During World War II, British prisoners of war were trapped in Japanese prisoner of war camps and forced to build a railway bridge. This drama movie by David lane is not only a grand and explosive (literally) war film, but also an incredible psychological chess game between Alec Guinness and Cole Nicholson and Col. Saito of Sessue Hayakawa. Crazy meditation on war, Guihe bridge is a drama full of influence and powerful moments, big and small.
Christopher Nolan, a master of presenting wonders with his brain and substance, turned his attention to a little-known corner of history (at least for most people outside the United Kingdom) and produced a satisfying and exciting great drama movie. Set in 1940 during World War II, the drama movie tells the story of British, French, Belgian and Dutch troops trapped on the beach of Dunkirk by German troops and miraculously evacuated by civilian ships provided by local people. A movie story so perfect that it's incredible to think it's based on facts.
With absolutely eliminated actors - mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, liev Schreiber, John Slattery, Stanley Tucci and Billy Crudup to name just a few - spotlight is a drama movie about the Boston Globe in the Catholic Church in 2001. This is a difficult and fascinating story, told brilliantly by all the dominating actors who brought their a-games. It's completely fascinating.
Adapted from Richard Yates's highly acclaimed novel, the road to revolution is beautifully filmed, deliberately capturing the details of the 1950s, and features an outstanding cast of Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Michael Shannon, Catherine Hahn, David Harper and Kathy Bates. So far, everything is fine. The problem with this drama movie is that it makes you so perfectly and so uncomfortable getting close to a marriage that is dying from inside out that once it's over, you probably won't want to revisit the story. It wasn't an interesting journey, it was an emotionally devastating story that didn't work.
12 Years a Slave
There are many films and TV series that detail the horror and shame of slavery in the United States, but Steve McQueen's films take a slightly different approach. According to Solomon Northrup's memoir, "twelve years in slavery" tells an incredibly true story of how Solomon - a free man - was abducted and forced into slavery by ruthless slave traders. Chiwetel Ejiofor is as heartbreaking and charming as Northrup (the pain and despair in his eyes are deeply affecting). His matching star lineup includes Michael Fassbender, Michael K. Williams, Paul Dano and Lupita nyong'o, who won an Oscar and began her career.
