For me best movie based on a book is "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". What's your opinion? 🙂
I like "Eat Pray Love". Well, definitely it is not the best movie based on book but when I read the book I imagined the main character as it was in the movie. And Bali - a place worth to visit!
A Clockwork Orange. A crazy book and even crazier movie. After watching this the world will seem different. Suggest to everyone who is looking for inspiration.
N.Sparks - the Notebook. This has inspired me for some of my romantic novels :)
Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind. Classic remains classic.
Trainspotting - Actually, first I saw the movie and only after then read the book but still was very excited about both pieces of work
The Shining - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081505/
