The power of visual media cannot be understated. There are few things (aside from a good book) that I enjoy as much as a first-rate screenplay. Below are some of my favorites. Please note that each of us has different standards when choosing what media to consume; and some films listed may contain colorful language, be graphically violent, be rated R, or otherwise differ from your personal standards.
