There were surprisingly few votes in our last poll, so lets hope people have woken up now after the new year and are ready to debate this fortnight’s topic. With The Iron Lady and J. Edgar gracing cinemas around the UK at the moment I thought I’d ask our readers for their favourite biopics. Now I’m not usually a fan of this sub-genre, but when compiling it I found some great films that could come under the biopic banner so maybe I’m not entirely a hater. Anyway, we’ll be discussing this and the results of the poll in our next podcast, so keep an ear out for that.

As always, if you have any issues with my selection or biopics in general, put your thoughts in the comments section.

    I’m a massive Lawrence of Arabia fan so it had to be that, but in terms of approach to biopics I love American Splendor because it does things differently by blending documentary, drama and animation to bring the story of Harvey Pekar to life.

    Ed Wood and Raging Bull are great of course too and I saw Andrei Rublev recently and that blew me away. A re-watch might put it above Lawrence of Arabia even.

    Sorry Darren I thought you were a film fan 🙂

    Andrei Rublev is one of Tarkovsky’s most famous films. It’s worth checking out although you’ll probably hate it 🙂
