And defend your answer. And it can't be one that's already been named in this thread.

Here's LostInAnomie's original thread.

1. I never named a classic that I think sucks....
...but I can guarantee that Oldboy is better than whatever it would have been. :)

2. Oh, that's easy, my dear Orrex!
"Shawshank Redemption."

Why is it better than "Citizen Kane"?

Well, there's a murder in it. A prison story, well-told. A morality play, if you will, although you could claim that "Citizen Kane" has a morality play in it too, though I no longer remember.

It is extremely well cast, and edited. The pace is not rushed; it's just right. It's never boring.

It's a great human interest story too.

That'll do, I think.

:hi:

3. But does Shawshank have an assault committed with a child's sled?
I didn't think so.
