Not Too Old For This S**t: Best Seniors On Film

Part of the "Oldboy" Showdown!

The coronavirus pandemic has hit our old people hard. For this, our hundredth Showdown (great scott!), we celebrate them by celebrating the best of the silvery screen. Kindly wisdom and wacky bucket lists from funny old folks near the end of their lives is all well and good, but old people are, y’know, people—still living, learning, falling in love and making mistakes in all their messy, naughty, double-crossing, flirty, dangerous glory. So give us your ten most interesting seniors in movies (whether the film itself is about old age doesn’t matter, but if it’s an interesting take, even better). No need to take 45 years to make your list, just give it le week-end.
