25 Best Movies Of All Time

Steve Porter / December 22, 2016

All art is relatively subjective, some of it is just plain bad while some of it, regardless of personal taste, is good. That being said, we’ve compiled a list of what are the top 25 films ever made (in our minds anyway). Please note: something that you must understand about this list is that the order in which the films appear has no bearing on how good they are, rather than try and rank the 25 films from “worst” to “best” or vice versa, we’ve decided to lump them all together. For that reason, any of the following films could be considered “the best film ever made”.

 

The Silence of the Lambs

 

 

This 1991 crime-thrillerama was directed by Jonathan Demme (Philadelphia) and written by Ted Tally (All The Pretty Horses). It’s based on a novel by Thomas Harris of the same name. The film stars Anthony Hopkins (The Edge) and Jodie Foster (Contact). The film runs for 1 hour and 58 minutes and has an IMDB rating of 8.6 from just over 900,000 users. The Silence of the Lambs follows Clarice Starling, a young FBI cadet who must work with Dr. Hannibal Lecter, an imprisoned killer, in order to use his knowledge to help her track down another active killer known as Buffalo Bill. The film is best enjoyed with some fava beans and a nice chianti.
