    Default Movies that make an impact

    I didn't see a thread for people to discuss movies that they found particularly profound or that made a significant impact on them and a chance to discuss the reasons why.

    We just watched "Monster", and I would like to come back and comment on it more. I was glad to see they took an emotionally and psychologically complex approach to the story. Has anyone else seen it? or another movie you would like to discuss?

    This movie left a deep impact... on my colon.

    I have a long list that would qualify. For me one movie that comes to mind immediately is Life Is Beautiful. It's like a comedy mixed with the ultimate tragedy. There is really no other movie like it.

    I loved the original Clash of the Titans...as a kid loved mythology...especially Greek/Roman...today the myths still aid me as metaphores. Cant wait to see the remake coming out this week. Release the Kraken!

    Memento - do you lie to yourself to be happy?

    Trainspotting - choose life?

    I saw Monster a few years ago. Not only was it a tour de force by Theron, but it was just an extremely honest portrayal of the woman. I don't remember much of the detail, I just remember appreciating the honesty and its willingness to embrace complexity and ambiguity.

    The movie that had the biggest impact on my thinking was a documentary called the Corporation. I work in corporate America for and with many of these large corporations but hadn't really thought about the origin of the corporation and what its impacts are on society, life, etc.

    I'm afraid I didn't like Monster that much.

    Critters made an impact on me, since I was too young when I watched it and believed those furry balls to be real.

    There are a ton more movies that made some form of impact on me. In the past few years, the key to impacting me is by surprising me with interesting plots and sources of intellectual perceptions.
