10 Movies That Could Change Your Understanding Of Life

10 Movies That Could Change Your Understanding Of Life
Every movie has the ability to affect its viewer differently. Some films evoke wonder and excitement, while others provoke fear or sorrow, but a commonality among all films is a prevailing message or theme. Some films can summon such profound questions, that it changes the way you perceive life as you once knew it. The following list contains 10 unique movies that do just that. 10) Donnie Darko Richard Kelly’s cult-classic Donnie Darko stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a troubled, sleep-walking teen who is insistent in challenging authority and who is often visited by Frank, a monstrous rabbit that urges Donnie to perform dangerous and destructive pranks. A haunting work of loneliness, alienation and the universal desire for companionship and meaning that’s wrapped in a guise of understated ‘80s nostalgia and head-spinning science fiction mythology, Donnie Darko is a film you shouldn’t miss. What makes Donnie Darko especially fascinating is its take on multiple realities and universes. 9) The Matrix Related:  Listsmovies

Top 20 Banned Movies of All Time | World Leaks #1 Dorlita In The Passion Dance Dorlita in the Passion Dance (1894) might have been the first film ever to be banned in the U.S. More than a decade before Hollywood studios were even operating, this short film was banned in New Jersey after it began to appear in peepshows and burlesque houses. #2 Reservoir Dogs Although it’s not discussed much in the press anymore, Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs(1992) was so controversial in Britain that censors prevented it from being released on VHS. #3 The Last Temptation of Christ The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), a riveting account of Jesus Christ’s last days, is one of the few films on this list that is still banned in some parts of the world. #4 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Despite its status as one of the scariest horror films of all time, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) is surprisingly without much visual gore.

Just imagine what would be possible if everyone in the country was aware of how unhealthy the mainstream media was for our future and started turning to independent sources in droves. Creating a better world really does start with an informed citizenry, and there's lots of subject matter to cover. From all the documentaries above, it's evident that our society needs a new story to belong to. The old story of empire and dominion over the earth has to be looked at in the full light of day - all of our ambient cultural stories and values that we take for granted and which remain invisible must become visible. But most of all, we need to see the promise of the alternatives - we need to be able to imagine new exciting ways that people could live, better than anything that the old paradigm could ever dream of providing. So take this library of films and use it.
