Best History Movies

Important and powerful historical films reawaken interest in aspects of the past that were not previously well-represented or understood. In history movies the primary plot is based on actual historical events, or an imagined plot unfolds in such a way that actual historical events are central and intrinsic to the story. Historical film subtypes include the epic, the war film, the biographical film, the period or topical film, and what might be called the metahistorical film, that present the past from multiple, conflicting viewpoints in an attempt to illustrate the complexity of representing the historical past.
