I am seeking movies for a curriculum on Film Studies & Philosophy I'm writing for my homeschooled teen-ager and me. This section deals with determinism and free will. Are our choices determined for us, or do we have free will? Comments and suggestions are enthusiastically welcomed. :-)

The Adjustment Bureau, as far as new titles go. I'm drawing a blank on others right now...

Oh, and there's Run, Lola, Run of course. And if memory serves me at all... Sliding Glass Doors?

you should consider watching the buffy the vampire slayer series on netflix as well as angel, sure it's considered teen drama and or campy now a days but really.

it's also about a strong female lead as well as other things.

they touch on many subjects cleverly disguised. as." demons' for the most part. if you ask me it's brilliant..don't give up on it., it can be very enjoyable..

another one
