I just watched Mr.Nobody and I feel mesmerized. I use to have a lot of philosophical movies and series that just changes your perspective on life as you grow. I have forgotten a majority of them now, but there are still an occasional one or two like The Man From Earth, something sweet like Mary and Max, or even personally for me, Little Manhattan that just send a euphoric reminisce either about your childhood, your dreams, what could have happened or what you wished happened, to what is wonderful about life or what the purpose of it is. There are many that I could name if I could just recall nostalgia at my beckoning.
Well anyway, can you guys name a few books, movies, or anything that had changed your perception of life and/or enlightened your outlook?
Of course this might just be emotional withdrawal from watching that movie. Still, indulge me nevertheless :)
Oh yeah, anime and the like counts too. I definitely know a few that had changed me. Of course, when I say change, I definitely meant Change and not just your favorite movie. For example, you might enjoy The Notebook or Shawkshank Redemption, but that does not necessary count as an actual distorting of your outlook on life.
Pi, Ninja Scroll, 1984.
Wait I withdraw Ninja Scroll as it didn't "change" me. Legend of the Overfiend, an anime, did, though. I was the only one able to watch the whole movie. I remember it being horribly perverse, and for me, that says a lot.
Gundum Wing, Endless Waltz
