    Are there any movies that are completely realistic?

    Most realistic movie?

    Is it even possible to make an entertaining movie that is somewhat realistic?

    Do you mean like Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy realistic? Or actual dictionary definition realistic?

    Well movies that are based on true stories sometimes fit the profile. Usually they are way over dramatized, but sometimes they stay pretty spot on.

    The Road. If the Yellowstone caldera blows, or we get hit by a large enough asteroid that could be the world we end up with.

    I wasn't there obviously but WWII vets have said how Saving Pvt. Ryan's Normandy invasion scenes were very realistic...

    This might be a thread for me.:D

    Well I know quite a few people who only watch realistic movies, so you can guess the answer :)

    Try Iranian, European or South-American cinema. Realism is more popular in those areas.

    From the US, best bet is the the Before trilogy from Linklater. There are also lot of independent realistic films.

    that was the first thing that jumped to my mind.

    City Of God will get mentioned sooner or later as well. And for good reason, its a great film, one of the first that got me interested in cinema.

    It's been a while since I watched the movie, but if you actually pay close attention the crimes and the timeline occur in, the movie makes no sense and depends on absurd coincidence.

    There are a lot of realistic movies, but not a lot of mundane ones, if that is what you mean. For example, Aguirre the Wrath of God (old favourite, watched it again yesterday) is a movie set in a historic but by most standards otulandish situation, and yet, is completely realistic. That being said, the Wrestler can be a tad melodramatic in places, but is also very realistic.

    The Pusher trilogy is also good if you want realistic but exciting film, its an almost dogma gangster/drug dealer movie.
