    I am limiting my choices to movies that are primarily involved in the court proceedings and/or the main character is someone being judged.

    A lot of people would list "To Kill A Mockingbird" which is my fourth favorite movie of all time, but I see that film as mainly a look into the experiences of two young children with the court case a side story.

    1. The Verdict

    2. 12 Angry Men

    3. Inherit the Wind

    4. I Want to Live!

    5. The Life of Emile Zola

    6. Witness for the Prosecution

    7. Judgement at Nuremberg

    8. Anatomy of a Murder

    9. A Man For All Seasons

    10. A Cry In The Dark
