Top 100 Best Biography Movies Of All Time

Greatest Biography Movies of All Time

What are the best biography movies? First of all let me clear you that biography movies are not as same as true story films and history movies. This is because movies made on true stories or historical events involves a group of people and none of them are known until the event occurred. While biographical movies or biopics tells the story of the life of a person who achieved significant status and affected the lives of other person either positively or negatively. Biographical Movies are often seen as inspirational and motivational films. This is because most of the biopics are made on people or legends who became inspirational source to many others due to their work and their attitude for life.

Biography movies are not easy to make. One reason is because you can not alter the events that occurred in the life of that person. Plus you also need to represent the events and the characters of person as real as possible. The real is that most of the biopics are made on the people who are not alive anymore and it gets harder to depict their reactions and their attitude on several topics and events. Interestingly almost all biography films have the plot different from the real events. Not all the events but either the chronology of events is altered or several events are added or deleted to add more high tension drama. Critics and Fans dont mind it as long as it plays off well and understandable.
