(SPOT.ph) When Jim Morrison said, "I think in art, but especially in films, people are trying to confirm their own existences," he wasn’t kidding. Films don't just invite us to take a peek into the lives of its characters-they force us to reflect on our own existence and the way we see the world.
Great movies, more than just a vicarious experience, impel us to move. As the stories of our heroes unfold on the big screen, their lives become our lives, even if it's only until the theater lights are turned back on. And as the end credits start rolling, we think back on the scenes that made us laugh, cry, or cheer, and find that we are forever changed. Here are our top picks for films that had us mulling over life and all its intricacies.
