The 10 Greatest Movies Never Made

There is something sad and powerful in the possibilities of a story that is never told. A recent article on the BBC highlighted the "10 Greatest Movies that Were Never Made." The list, filled with brilliant directors and powerful possible plotlines, include Napoleon by Stanley Kubrick, Kaleidoscope, a boundary-pushing Alfred Hitchcock shock film that only had an hour of test footage shot, and Heart of Darkness from Orson Welles. Powerful stories, that in capable hands would have likely become classics.
