OPINION: My Favorite American Movies of All Time

The Silence of the Lambs 

In my opinion, The Silence of the Lambs is undeniably one of the best American movies of all time. Thanks to its suspenseful plot, exceptional performances by Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, and skilful direction by Jonathan Demme. Which all come together to create an unforgettable and haunting masterpiece of psychological horror.

Who doesn’t love a good horror? The Silence of the Lambs is a 1991 psychological horror movie directed by the internationally acclaimed Jonathan Demme. This American movie features the infamously brilliant but deranged Dr Hannibal Lecter (played by Anthony Hopkins). He is being sought for advice by Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Clarice Starling (played by Jodie Foster) in hunting a notorious psycho serial killer, “Buffalo Bill,” who skins female victims.

The Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Out of the five movies in the film series, it’s no contest that The Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl stand as one of the best from the franchise. With its outstanding cinematography, excellent storyline, and its amusing comedy. “Not all treasure is silver and gold mate” some come in the form of the legendary pirate of the Seven Seas, Captain Jack Sparrow.

Schindler’s List

In my opinion, Schindler’s List stands out as one of the best American movies of all time. This is due to its powerful depiction of the Holocaust, masterful direction by Steven Spielberg, and outstanding performances by the cast, making it a poignant and unforgettable cinematic experience.

“Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire.” Schindler’s List is a real-life story of Oskar Schindler, a German business owner who dedicated his life to saving as many Jews in his factory during the despicable events of the Holocaust during the Second World War. The film is a cinematic masterpiece that features the in-depth horrors of the Holocaust, augmented music, and the powerful acting of Liam Neeson. 

The Devil Wears Prada

“Alright, Everyone, Gird your Loins!” Unlike Florals for Spring, this American movie is almost groundbreaking. The Devil Wears Prada is a 2006 comedy-drama that features the powerful fashion magazine editor/ dragon queen Miranda Priestly (played by Meryl Streep) and her new assistant Andrea Sachs (played by Anne Hathaway).
