i enjoyed it too

When I saw American History X in this list I was just going to suggest you The believer, then I saw you put that too. May I suggest Harold & Maude? It makes you think about different ways to live our lives, and different ways to find yourself and accept different people.

Though it's definitely not for everybody, Man From Earth is one of the smartest films I've ever seen. And more digestable than My Dinner With Andre.
Also, Waking Life is another that can leave the viewer with ideas to think about.

This list : about being unique and different, showing to the world about the quirkiness we all possess one another and that it's OKAY to be different.
Posted: 2 years, 5 months ago at Nov 16 13:52
indeed

How about The Game (1998) directed by David Fincher. It makes you think about the negative effects of greed.
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at Nov 28 22:52
Great!
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at Dec 16 2:05
How about A Clockwork Orange?

Perhaps Eternal Sunshine For The Spotless Mind as well?
And Lost In Translation made me think too.
Posted: 2 years ago at Mar 30 4:25
OMG thank U - it's been driving me crazy, I remember all the advertisements for "the Believer" but never saw it, it's been some years now and I couldn't quite recall the title, I've been wracking my brain trying to remember!

BTW - ANY list the requires 'thinking' NEEDS "2001 - A Space Odyssey" on it...
Posted: 2 years ago at Apr 2 12:53
I would say "The Number 23" as well, after I watched that movie, it was stuck in my head for months. Definitely makes you think.

Another suggestion: Instinct... a 1999 film starting Anthony Hopkins and Cuba Gooding Jr... Is about the myth of human dominance over other species and earth in general, the simplicity of life, and freedom.

nice choices. i wouldd suggest cloud atlas, american beauty, modern times and, at the risk of sounding too cliche, V of Vendetta

The movie Margaret is definitely another one that can be analyzed for themes.
