For no particular reason, I’m going to rank my top ten among actual (not ersatz) biopics we’ve listed:
- Coal Miner’s Daughter
- The Buddy Holly Story
- Great Balls of Fire (Not to be taken too seriously. The over the top performance by Dennis Quaid is hilarious.)
- Walk the Line
- La Bamba
- Sid and Nancy
Those are all very good and very much worth watching.
De-Lovely I did see a few years ago and enjoyed, along with Sid and Nancy. I’m putting a lot of these on in my queue. I had no idea John Carpenter did an Elvis movie!
Tout les matins du monde, a french film about the relationship between baroque composer Marin Marais and his teacher Monsieur de Sainte Colombe. Also, one of my favorite soundtrack CDs of all time.
