In my practice, I often refer to movies as a way to deepen the work and explore new ways of being in the world. Movies are a wonderful way to expand and challenge ourselves. They provide a unique door to the profound human experience.

This list was started using Wikipedia, then I reorganized and modified it. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen all these movies, so feel free to share your observations and omissions. My goal is to make this list as a started point for exploration and meaningful discussions.
