Two imprisoned men bond over a number of years, finding solace and eventual redemption through acts of common decency.

Acting by every person in this movie are all Oscar worthy in my book, from Tim Robbins portrayin... read more

Not a single review for this one? I'm shocked.

It's number 1 IMDB (ignore the fact that Godfather, which has less votes and lower IMDB score is still holding #1 spot for past year, Shawshank is the TRUE number 1 IMDB movie). And the highest rated popular movie on here as well.

But i guess a movie like this doesn't really need reviews; it's absolutely perfect, and... read more

1001 Movies ... my own version (1990's) (129 movies items)

" Notes: Many people find it weird that this flick has been on the 1st place of the IDMDb 250 for so many years but even if you don't think that it is that good, you have to agree that this movie is definitely the stuff of legend. I mean, when it came out, almost nobody saw it. Eventually, it still managed to get 7 nominations at the Academy Awards but even there, it was snobbed and won nothing. Still, gradually, it gained a cult status and is now considered by many as the best movie ever made. "
