    I think maybe you've used the genre 'Drama' way too broadly. Most any film can be classified as a 'drama'. All your films here fit into different sub-genres of Drama:

    12 Angry Men - Courtroom Drama
    Lawrence of Arabia - More of an Epic
    Raging Bull - Sports Drama
    Do the Right Thing - Comedy Drama
    Oldboy - More of Mystery Thriller

    But you're right in that all these films are classics!
    Yeah, I agree. I just used my IMDb ratings and Drama was the category I have the most ratings for. I was looking through the list and thought "is that really a drama"? quite a few times. Nontheless I am pleased that you're fond of these films.

    LOL...I hear that. Too bad it's a Top 5. Makes the list more critical

    Yeah, even if it was a top 10 it'd have been tough, so many good movies...
