What are interesting movies?

I mean music or movies that has profound meanings and disclose a lot of metaphysical truths.

I'll start

Music:

Enigma
Delerium
some Pink Floyd

Movies:

Fight club
The Cube
2001 Space odyssey
The Truman Show
The Matrix
Donny Darko
Dark City

I think all the ones I mentioned are so obvious that I don't need any explanation.  But I am sure there are a lot of interesting things out there.

Re: What are interesting movies?

I've gotten into a funk funk over the past two years after starting with Parliament Funkadelic (and even meeting George Clinton!). The music has a ton of energy, a certain heaviness and just exudes positivity - I can't stand the radio so searching for gems in the rough has been a lot of fun and I'd love to share some findings. Thankfully people have been uploading music crates full of rare albums for others to find and enjoy.

Sorry about the big list, but it was pretty hard to narrow down... movies are a whole 'nother can of worms!  Both in one thread?!  That's loco!  I'll narrow down a good list later on...

oh and for some group I just found recently that isn't funk, Dr. Dog - My Old Ways - great lyrics and fun video!

Re: What are interesting movies?

I just watched Gattaca which was recommended to me by a friend and very interesting.  It definitely is a movie with deeper meanings and spiritual metaphors.  The final scene symbolizes ascension.  The final quote says "For someone who was never meant for this world, I must confess I'm suddenly having a hard time leaving it. Of course, they say every atom in our bodies was once part of a star. Maybe I'm not leaving... maybe I'm going home. "

Loving it. Seems 'Into the wild.' is a favourite here. It certainly is an insightful story.
Can't say much, must contain plot.
Strikes me, a photo, is happy,enlightened and prepared, perhaps.

Re: What are interesting movies?

Who here loves Jim Henson movies? I think the man was a pure genius and of the greatest imaginations ever smile
Especially The Dark Crystal. That movie was so brilliantly written and the puppet designs are so beautiful ^_^

Yes, I watched "The Dark Crystal" after a recommendation on a similar thread on NR. It really is very, VERY symbollic, and would whole-heartedly recommend it!
