8. The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957)
Alec Guinness, who won Best Actor for his performance led an amazing cast in The Bridge on the River Kwai. The film told an unique story of a prisoner of war brought together by meshing themes that made for a captivating story. David Lean won Best Director for his job with the film – and it was well deserved. This film delivers in every way possible and causes the viewer to really think about the delivered message.
If you are a fan of classic war films that examine the psychological effects of war and imprisonment, this is the film for you. It is not the typical war film, which allows it to stand out among other films in the genre. Those familiar with David Lean’s work will see his signature throughout the film and will definitely enjoy the journey this film takes you on.
