Director: Jon S. Baird Starring: Steve Coogan, John C. Reilly Year: 2018 A more perfect tribute to past celebrity might not exist on the planet; Stan & Ollie may have just topped the list.  There are biopics that have won prestigious awards, but I’m not sure any of them have harnessed the heart of this
