Academy Awards at 90. One of the biggest box office hits of all time, The Godfather was dubbed “Gone With the Wind of gangster movies.” Based on Mario Puzo’s best-selling novel, this epic rejuvenated the genre and can be seen as a metaphor for corruption on a larger scale, in both government and corporate America.

Academy Awards at 90 | Free Member Film. Based on the novel by Larry McMurtry, the tearjerker of the 1980s features no fewer than four Hollywood talents at the top of their game: Mary Tyler Moore Show co-creator James L. Brooks, making a remarkably assured big-screen directing debut; veterans Shirley MacLaine and Jack Nicholson, forging the kinds of prickly characters they would continue to play for the rest of their careers; and the remarkably talented Debra Winger, whose rapidly rising star would inexplicably fizzle by decade’s end.

Academy Awards at 90. There have been sequels, prequels, television series, and too many cheap knock-offs to count, but with the possible exception of Michael Mann’s Manhunter (1986), nothing comes close to Jonathan Demme’s take on Hannibal “the Cannibal” Lecter (played here by Anthony Hopkins): a brilliant psychiatrist who not only gets inside his victims’ heads, he cooks and eats whatever he finds there (served, of course, with fava beans and a nice chianti).
