Behnam Rostami DDS is a huge movie fan. He enjoys everything from swift action movies to comedies to serious films about serious issues. Rostami enjoys a low-brow flick every once in a while, but when it comes to the truly great films, he is passionate about them and how they have affected his life. Rostami has learned much about America from films like Citizen Kane and The Godfather, and he has learned about the human spirit from many other great films over the years. But what makes a film great? Here are three things in common the best movies all have:
Human, three-dimensional characters. One of the things all great films do is transport you to a different realm sometimes wildly different than our own or remarkably similar. What makes the greatest films great is the people that populate these new realms. All great films have characters as three-dimensional and alive as the people that we see in our everyday lives.
A rich setting. The setting doesn’t have to be a sum of green screens and costume designs. It can simply be a room or a small place. No matter what the setting is, however, the greatest films make the setting come alive with its own voice and characterization in the story.
Emotionally adept acting. Behnam Rostami DDS has a long list of favorite actors he has seen and admired over the years. The best films have actors who can add to their characters rather than simply copy them. Actors bring emotional resonance and nuance to the best films.
