Tough decision here.
Mon oncle d'Amérique (1980) doesn't try to make a biography of fictional people. It is what the plot outline says: "The intersecting stories of three people who face difficult choices in life-changing situations are used to illustrate the theories espoused by Henri Laborit about human behavior and the relationship between the self and society."
It is closer to Teorema in the concept than with the rest of the films listed.
Okay, removed it. Thanks for the suggestion.

Blinded by the light
Requiem for a dream
Life of Pi
Million Dollar Baby
(Just for your consideration.)
P.S.: Added 'The Mule' in my suggestion but remembered that it is based on a true story.
The War of the Roses
Added all, thanks for the recommendations.
Glad I could help.

We should maybe stick to movies that cover the progress of the main character's life from childhood or early adulthood onward to the point in time that constitutes a present day of story and before the character's death; basically like Forrest Gump and Interview with a Vampire,
That isn't stated clear enough in the intro or poll-description. I understand your intention, but with that setting half of the movies are off. I suggested some movies, which throw a light on part of the characters life in that movies. I especially tried to figure out some movies, where a wider time span of the characters life is shown. Just look on (e.g.) Copiyng Beethoven. This movie is biographical for sure, but it just shows a little timespan at the end of Beethoven's life. I think that in the examples of the list a medium time span of these characters lifes is told. I don't get, why it always has to be from birth to death. Normaly a part of life is enough to call it biographical. In that cases it's also fictional.
P.S.: ... which is also a feature in nearly each drama.

I just thought it might be meaningful and utilitarian to narrow down the criteria, as otherwise any fictional movie focused on one character would fit the bill.
Agree. Then it is more difficult to find fitting movies. But I guess the quality of the poll would rise. I'd say it depends on the idea CyrilMartin has about the suggestions. And about how CyrilMartin wants to create it. It's CyrlMartin's idea, I just suggested.
How can we improve?
