With Ray set to win some Awards, I'm sure, it got me thinking to other good Bio-Pics out there.

I'll toss Chaplin into the hat.

I'd say Amadeus is one of the best.

Assuming Citizen Kane doesn't count, I'd say Born on the Fourth of July or Shine

my favorite is probably Blow, but the best is Patton.

I always liked the "Buddy Holly Story" myself.

Tell you what, after seeing The Aviator yesterday, i can say it can't even be listed in the top 10 of all bio pics. I was so dissapointed.

I'd have to say Thirty-Two Short Films About Glenn Gould - even though it's more of a character study than it is a bio-pic... but I think it still applies.

Does Tupac: Resurrection count?
