Flick Pick: Forrest Gump

Forrest Gump
(Paramount, 1994)

Epic tale of America, in the person of Everyman as a not-very-bright Southern lad swept along for the ride. Played masterfully by Tom Hanks in his personal opus, supported by a great cast and letter-perfect storytelling and film making, and spends two and a half hours skewering every liberal sacred cow, and roasting it on the barbeque of humble determination and genuine innocence.
