#47 Primal Fear. This is an intense courtroom drama, and a very well made film that makes you think.This movie is one of the best courtroom dramas/thrillers out there. It is well made with a chilling plot and great dialogue. It's a movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the final shocking scene. The acting is great. Richard Gere is at his best. This is Edward Norton's first film. He is amazingly talented.
