Every Aaron Sorkin movie ranked
ComingSoon.net is counting down our ranking of the films of Aaron Sorkin, the man responsible for all kinds of classic dramas as well as the ever-popular television shows The West Wing and The Newsroom. Check out our choices in the gallery below!
A scriptwriter whose work has splayed itself across film, television, and stage, Aaron Sorkin has almost single-handedly invented a genre. His characters deliver captivatingly overwritten monologues full of sharp wit and finely-tuned points, immersed in stories of success and failure and the relationship between the two. Sorkin’s films and television shows paint the world as a place where good intentions alway trump the bad guys, and coming together as one will always be the solution instead of staying divided over our differences.
All of these sentiments are fine on-screen, but they’ve had serious real-world consequences over the past couple of decades since Sorkin first rose to notability. Many politicians and commentators take Sorkin’s tropes as fact, trying and failing to implement them into America’s political system. With all this in mind, let’s take a look at everything Sorkin’s done so far.
