10. The Passion of the Christ (2004)
Mel Gibson had a vision to make a cinematic passion play in dead languages, and he did so without Hollywood’s backing or support. It was a very polarizing film, but it was a powerful movie that shook things up in Hollywood.
9. United 93 (2006)
Only a few years after the events of September 11, Paul Greengrass directed the first theatrical movie about the terror attacks. With its gritty docudrama style, “United 93” presented an ultra-realistic look at some of the greatest American heroes in modern time.
