Best Drama Movies

In this list, we review the best Drama Movies films of recent years, films that make us reflect and that, occasionally, also move us.

These films are characterized by presenting a raw reality to the viewer through a story narrated with a more or less serious tone. Therefore, what distinguishes a drama from a thriller or any other type of film is the message that the writers want to send to the public.

Drama is not necessarily tragedy. Traditionally this genre, which finds its roots in classical Greece, presents us with a hero or heroine who enjoys a privileged position and who, as a result of Fate, loses, suffers, and is destroyed. Drama is more subtle and is often intermingled with other categories of cinema. So much so that the combination of laughter and tears has given rise to a new type of film and television: dramedy.

The drama does not avoid laughter, on the contrary, it takes advantage of it so that the viewer empathizes with the characters in the film. Who can forget Guido, that father turned into a clown to protect his son from the horrors of the concentration camp?

In this list of the best drama films we have had to leave great titles along the way, but we cannot forget some filmmakers who have left their mark on the history of cinema. If we talk about dramatic comedy or dramedy, we have referents such as Charles Chaplin or Billy Wilder. Both expressed great truths through apparently simple and light films.

Jim Uhls adapted the screenplay and David Fincher (Seven, The Social Network) directed the film. In the cast, we find Edward Norton, Brad Pitt, Helena Bonham Carter, and Jared Leto among other familiar Hollywood faces.

The plot is about a young insomniac who is tired of his monotonous life and on one of his trips he meets a very energetic and charismatic soap salesman (Brad Pitt) who defends a particular philosophy: self-destruction is the only way to that life is worth living. Between the two of them, they found a secret fight club where a growing group of men would go to vent their frustrations.

Fight Club established director David Fincher as one of the most valuable filmmakers in the film industry. The film is characterized by its violent and irreverent tone, apparently frivolous but, deep down, very subversive. This drama film marked an era and has become a benchmark, as well as a cult film.

The Godfather Drama Movie

The Godfather is a gangster-themed trilogy directed by Francis Ford Coppola. The first film in the saga was released in 1972. The film is based on the novel by Mario Puzzo, an Italian writer who was also involved in the screenplay adaptation.

It was a box office success and grossed over forty times its budget (the first film alone), but The Godfather’s enormous influence cannot be measured in millions of dollars. It is one of the best-valued productions and is considered by film critics as one of the best drama films of all time.

1940s America, Don Vito Corleone

In 1940s America, Don Vito Corleone, of Italian descent, is the capo of one of the five most powerful New York mafia families. He has four children: Connie, Sonny, Fredo, and Michael (Al Pacino), the only one who ignores his father’s smuggling business.

But times change and drugs are quickly becoming the big business of the city. Corleone refuses to participate, and ahead of another family orders his murder. Then a cruel war breaks out between the main mafia gangs in the city.

The best sad and/or exciting movies to cry: we have them. When we go to the movies (or enjoy it at home) we like to feel the adrenaline, we like to laugh… and we like to cry.

Much. It’s like a catharsis: that moment when a story on the screen touches your heart so much that tears come out without you being able to do anything about it.

Yes, we know that there is a very subjective component for this to happen because each viewer has different sensitivities and experiences that make them connect more or less with a given film.

Sometimes you see your own life reflected on the screen, it strikes a chord within and makes you have to run to the kitchen for some Kleenex. Subjectivity is very important in this case.

Even so, there are some titles that it is very difficult not to get excited about. Those with whom a good cry is (almost) guaranteed. And we collect them here.

We go through Titles of all Kinds of Genres

In the list we go through titles of all kinds of genres, filmmakers and origins. For example, there is no shortage of animated classics with a dark back such as ‘ Grave of the Fireflies ‘ by Isao Takahata or ‘ Bambi ‘, the Walt Disney Pictures film that traumatized a generation (and which could be joined by others such as ‘ Dumbo ‘ and ‘ Tod and Toby ‘, and more recently ‘ Coco ‘ and ‘ Toy Story 3 ‘, to name just a few examples).

Holocaust in World War II

We’ll also find true stories that broke our hearts, from those that showed us the harsh realities of the Holocaust in World War II (like Steven Spielberg’s ‘ Schindler’s List ‘, ” by Roberto Benigni or ‘ The Boy in the Striped Pajamas ‘ by Mark Herman) to personal dramas of reunions, family conflicts and breakups (with titles like ‘ Lion ‘ by Garth Davis, ‘ Marriage Story ‘ by Noah Baumbach or ‘ My life without me ‘ by Isabel Coixet).

And going one step further, we also include ‘Bo Burnham: Inside’, the special that reminds us that being funny sucks. Comedians have always boasted of poor mental health and have known how to take advantage of the matter but, as the unstoppable machinery in which we live has swallowed us all, transforming the once-taboo psychological help into a basic necessity, some humor professionals have decided to go all out and turn their most complex experiences into choreographed more or less bitter testimonies.
