This post is part of a series on Perfect Films, please read the original post if you wonder what I mean by "perfect".
I am looking at my list of possible perfect movies and I am beginning to feel more afraid about sharing them. So today I pulled one off the list which felt safe. The Shawshank Redmeption is a film which I missed when it first came out, but since then I have watched and re-watched and re-re-watched.
I am particularly happy with the ending of this film, which wonderfully finishes the story and starts a new one, but without saying much, and without making you wish the movie would keep going. I don't really have much else to say because I am pretty sure everyone has seen this one.
