List Rules It's about movies that succeed as good film and good presentations of poetry.

Ranking movies about poets and poetry is tough because it's to say what the emphasis should be on. Should it be placed on how much poetry is in the film or how well the film dramatizes the poet's life and the poet's struggle to create good spits? Probably maybe both. Please add your own favorite if you don't see it here.
