mom3feistykids has several lists covering philosophy topics and related films. I really like the lists even if I haven't contributed that many titles to the lists.

Ah, and my personal favorite topic Dystopia!

First of all: I think Art and Philosophy are inseparable, so wouldn't know how to do a list like this...but I got some observations:
I like the idea behind these lists, but I don't find 'em that accurate and I'm not sure about the way topics are divided. For instance: I think "Synecdoche New York" is deeply philosophical, where would you locate a movie like that in this lists? "movies about the meaning of life"?
And I could say the same thing about a lot of Woody Allen's movies (nihilism and "uber-nihilism" are behind a lot of his works, from "Fogs and Shadow" to "Vicky Christina Barcellona").
Then there are movies like "No Country For Old Men" (or, in my opinion, "Aguirre"), that are deeply symbolic, but in a subtler way.
Not to mention "Tree of Life" and some of Aronofsky's films (even if we take "The Fountain" - definitely his less liked movie - isn't that about human desperate attachment to life?).
And there are tons of other movies that I find 'philosophical' and 'psycho-socio-logical' (I personally think it's a better combination than "ideological and philosophical"), and I'm talking about classic movies like "Citizen Kane", "Taxi Triver", "Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie" and so on.

I don't know...I guess what I'm tryin' to say is: I like these lists, but I think "Philosophical Films" is kind of too much for one list, and definitiely too much to be "indexed" and put together with "ideological movies"...Still, I enjoyed reading this...

I guess I should have written this in some of the lists instead of in this lists' list...but I wasn't sure about where!
I hope you enjoyed my pointless dissertation! :)

Cool list,
(but agree with Zenn)

Yeah, I changed this list back to only ideological films.
