A list of 7 Films that Might Change the way you think :
7. V For Vendetta by James McTeigue
This film is about an anarchist freedom fighter who attempts to ignite a revolution against the brutal fascist regime. The Guys Fawkes Mask from the film has now become a symbol against tyranny. This brutally intelligent political thriller is sure to disturb you.
6.Life is Beautiful by Robert Benigni
'Nothing is more necessary than the unnecessary.'
This 1997 tragic comedy reveals the power of optimism and perception during the dark hours. The film set at the back drop of Nazi death camps is not about the Fascists or the Nazis , it is about the triumph of human spirit.
5.The Matrix by The Wachowski
"Brahma Sathyam Jagath Mithya - Brahman is real, World is unreal"
Wachowskis' groundbreaking "The Matrix" stands the test of time and this series is based on numerous philosophical and religious ideas. The follow-ups in the series weren't positively received during that time as they delved deep into philosophical themes. It is the one of the greatest Sci-fi series , which has a lot to offer and a potential to change the way you look at life.
4. 2001: A Space Odyssey by Stanley Kubrick
If you manage to understand this film at the first watch give yourself a thumbs up !
This is undoubtedly the most complex film for a normal human being to comprehend and it deals with multiple themes such as human evolution,existentialism,technology,artificial intelligence and extraterrestrial life.This 1969 epic space odyssey is one of the most influential films ,also the ambiguity of the film has led to multiple interpretations . Stanley Kubrick had refused to explain what actually happened in the film and so we are free to embrace our own theories.
3.The Man From Earth by Richard Schenkman
And that's what I taught, but a talking snake made a lady eat an apple, so we're screwed. - John Oldman (The Man From Earth)
The screenplay of this film was conceived by Jerome Bixby in the early 1960s and completed on his death bed in April 1998. It took a man almost 40 years to conceive the film.The Man From Earth is a complex thought process with a simple screenplay , it is a unique blend of theology, biological fantasy and mind games. One of the greatest Independent films to have been made.
2.Boyhood by Richard Linklater
Boyhood once again reminds us Linklater's incredible prowess while elaborating on everyday events and magical relationships that constitute ‘life’. Everything in life is derived from the interactions we share with our surroundings, our adults who try to influence us, our friends who define our behaviour, the people we meet and the things we experience. Linklater purposefully avoids following a typical one set narrative here to bring out that very meaning of life.
The film is highly immersive, that at the end of it, we feel like we've been taken through a visual experience of a dear friend we've grown up with rather than watching a movie.
1.Fight Club by David Fincher
“It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.” - Fight Cub
If there is one film that can change the way you look at life it has to be Fight Club. It is a highly controversial satiric film , Fincher intended the films violence to serve as a metaphor for the conflict between a generation of young people and the value system of advertising.The Film made in 1999 is all the more relevant today and is widely quoted. Chuck Palahniuk is bringing the second part of the Fight Club book this July !
“We buy things we don't need with money we don't have to impress people we don't like.” - Fight Club
