AFI 10 Best Genre Films

Jonathan Valin -- Wed, 06/18/2008 - 13:21

As usual with AFI "Best Of" lists, its picks for the best genre films are a mixed bag, although I have to admit that some of their choices are dead-on and some are surprising. Here are their top picks:

Animation: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Romantic Comedy: City Lights
Western: The Searchers
Sports: Raging Bull
Mystery: Vertigo
Fantasy: The Wizard of Oz
Sci-Fi: 2001: A Space Odyssey
Gangster: The Godfather
Courtroom Drama: To Kill a Mockingbird
Epic: Lawrence of Arabia
