Movies about movies can be hard to make, but when they’re successfully made, they can be funny, witty, sad or silly. Here are, what I feel to be, the top 10 movies about movies.
1. Cinema Paradiso
Cinema Paradiso is the touching story of a young boy, who grows up obsessed with the cinema and strikes up a friendship with the local projectionist.
This masterpiece tells the story of a director who is finding it hard to complete his latest movie, as his life descends into chaos around him.
3. Synecdoche New York
A very complex film about a theatre director who gathers together a cast in a Manhattan Warehouse.
4. Sunset Boulevard
A struggling writer encounters a former starlet who has delusions about reviving her career, into which she brings him.
5. A Star is Born
Judy Garland’s greatest performance in which she plays a young alcoholic starlet who rises to fame against all odds.
6. Singin’ in the Rain
This classic movie tells the story of a silent movie production company who are tasked with turning their latest picture into a talking movie.
7. Barton Fink
Excellent Coen brothers movie about a playwright who relocates to Hollywood in order to write for the movies.
