In 2012 the BFI (British Film Institute) published a list of what, in the experts opinion, are the greatest Movies of all time. They were generally bad.
Here is the comparable IMDB list…. (list generated on 9/7/2014)
Number 45: The Green Mile
The Green Mile was already chosen for my personal list and viewing it simply strengthens that feeling. Stephen Kings source serialised novel was good but Frank Darabonts conversion to the screen makes it great. Never has Kings understanding of human nature and his almost mystical understanding of times and scenarios that he couldn’t possibly know about shone so brightly as it does here. This is simply the best adaptation of his out there.
RATINGS (at the time of publishing)
Watch this movie. It truly deserves its place in the cinematic hall of fame.
