- Five Movies which will completely Change Your Life. - May 23, 2016
The best inspirational movies leave an indelible impression on the viewer. In this selection I’ve chosen 5 from Oscar winners to cult favorites, they’re worthy of anyone’s DVD collection.
In an attempt to avoid this list being cliché, I’ve picked films you may not have seen before, and ones which may have slipped from your memory. As a result, you won’t find certain well known films
1-This wonderful period epic, loosely based on Mozart’s genius, boasts fine performances and exceptional music.
“This was a music I’d never heard. Filled with such longing, such unfulfillable longing.” A description of Mozart’s music.
2-A quirky, life-affirming claymation film. Two loners become pen pals and strike up a long distance friendship.
“My fifth job was a garbage collector. I cleaned up after litter bugs and didn’t have to talk to anybody. Sometimes I liked to pretend I was an intergalactic robot.” Max.
3-The story of Pi’s fight for survival whilst stranded in the Pacific Ocean. A volatile Bengal tiger is his sole company.
“The whole of life becomes an act of letting go, but what always hurts the most is not taking a moment to say goodbye.” Pi.
4-This fantasy drama centres around six year old Hushpuppy. As her community is stricken with environmental issues, she learns to adapt to a new world.
“I see that I am a little piece of a big, big universe, and that makes it right.” Hushpuppy.
5-A tense survival tale by Werner Herzog, featuring Christian Bale as POW Dieter Dengler. A true story, Dengler’s bravery and charmisma are truly inspiring.
“Empty what is full. Fill what is empty. Scratch what itches.” Dieter Dengler.
