I'll probably get mauled, but Trancers.

ONE of them is Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.

Tom Stoppard is incredible.

My opinion only. 'One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest'

Re: What's The Best Written Film?

12 Angry Men is extremely well written. There are a lot of great insights into the many different facets of human nature as represented by the titular twelve guys.

Re: What's The Best Written Film?

I'm also with Margo on this one, with All About Eve.

Both movies are very poignant.

Another one I really enjoyed was Judgement at Nuremberg.
