It's almost impossible to remember all the movies directed by the award winning filmmaker turned politician, Desmond Elliot.

We here at Pulse Nigeria decided to share our top 5 favourite movies directed by Elliot, who remains one of the most prolific and successful directors in all of Nollywood history.

So, in no particular order, here we go;

1. Lagos Cougars

If you are a fan of a star studded comedy, then you must have heard of the movie ‘Lagos Cougars.’

The movie featured our veterans (Uche Jombo, Monalisa Chinda) at their best. Shawn Faqua and Benjamin Touitou did justice to their characters, while Alex Ekubo didn’t fail to bring on his sense of humor which we always love to watch on screen.

 

2. Bursting Out.

What’s not to love about the movie which starred two Nollywood sweethearts Genevieve Nnaji and  Majid Michel in lead roles.

What about Omoni Oboli, Nse Ikpe Etim and Susan Peters? The 3 mentioned actors totally brought their characters to life, and made the movie one of our favourite romantic comedies.

 

3. Guilty Pleasures.

The most interesting part of this 2009 movie was its ending. The movie took a break from the very popular ‘happy ending’ most Nollywood movies bring to our screens, and gave us a realistic one.

We all love happy endings, but we also appreciate reality, and that was what ‘Guilty Pleasures’ brought to us.’

4. Finding Mercy

In an interview with actress Tamara Eteimo who also  featured in the movie, she described Elliot as one of the best  directors in the industry.

She described him as one of the few who would push you till you have brought out your best.

Now we know the reason why  all the cast of  ‘Finding Mercy’ were at their best.

 

5. Knocking on Heaven’s Door.

The actor definitely did a good job at bringing the actor’s and their characters to life. From Adesua Etomi to Blossom Chukwujekwu, and of course, the ever interesting Majid Michel, what more could a movie lover ask for in a movie?

Which of these movies is your favorite?
