(Entire Godfather trilogy as one. Even if the 3rd is of a lesser quality, it is all part of a magnificent set of films. We wouldn't leave out a tale from Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales now would we?)

Magnum Opus n.
1. A great work, especially a literary or artistic masterpiece.
2. The greatest single work of an artist, writer, or composer.

This list is a collection of Magna Opera from some of the most famous Film directors of all time.

Whether I have seen the film or not, I will list it, if I believe that film to be highly regarded as the Magnum Opus.

Listed alphabetically by last name.

The choices are the films I believe to be their masterpiece(s), based on my own opinions (if I have seen the film) and/or their overall respect by audiences and critics.

I have chosen to use Director items instead of Film items because some directors have two or more films that can be considered their masterpiece.

If one director has 3 films and another only has 1, it doesn't mean that I believe the director with 3 is a better director. It just means they has more films that can be considered a masterpiece over the other, whereas some have a film that can be easily considered their Magnum Opus because the film in question is generally more famous and/or clearly regarded as their best work.

These are obviously great movies; but how can you consider them magnum opuses when you list two or more films for one director? Then they are just an opus.
Posted: 6 years, 6 months ago at May 24 15:45
I don't necessarily think that the two or more films are all equal to each other. I believe that just one in each is their true Magnum Opus, I just included a variety for some directors because there are many films that people would consider their definitive piece of work.

In my opinion,

Fellini's best is La Strada,

and Lynch's best is Mulholland Dr.
Posted: 6 years, 5 months ago at Jun 23 21:02
La Strada is a great film but whenever most people mention Fellini, they usually talk about 8 1/2. These aren't the films I think are the best personally, rather those often regarded as the best by critics and fans alike.
