2. The Last Emperor

The Bernardo Bertulocci film The Last Emperor was only released in 877 movie theaters, and pulled in just $43,984,000 in the U.S. box office. It didn’t actually enter the top ten at the box office until it had been showing for eight weeks, which is quite unusual. The artsy biographical film eventually caught on and ended up winning all nine Oscars that it was nominated for: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Film Editing, Best Original Score, Best Sound, Best Adapted Screenplay. It’s worth watching this almost 3 hour film, if you have the patience.
