Your top movies based on "real life" people?

I realize Hollywood always takes liberty but I enjoy films based on real life and hope to find some new ones to watch from some of your choices.Watcha got?



Mine in no particular order.



Truman-my favorite movie about a POTUS thought Gary Sinese was great as the lead.



The Buddy Holly Story-Gary Busey nailed this role.



City Of God-subtitled but easily in my top movies of all time.



Raging Bull-Deniro as boxer Jake LaMotta,loved that it was in black and white as well.



The Elephant Man-another black and white but loved the atmosphere and the story.



In Broad Daylight-this story took place just a mere 30 miles from where I live about the Skidmore bully and his murder which has yet to be solved to this day.



Casino-love Goodfellas as well but I still prefer Casino.

Don't think it was mentioned but Helter Skelter actually a tv movie had an actor that was quite convincing as Charles Manson.
