    Default Ni in motion picture...

    Name movies that are driven by the Introverted Intuition function (in your opinion, of course).

    I've never seen Blueberry--much less heard of it.
    Dune I can ABSOLUTELY see. David Lynch's movies are drawn from a raw, primal subconscious as is.

    While I love Man on Fire (I just watched it last week in fact), I must ask: How would you consider that to be a Ni-heavy movie?

    I see it in Man on Fire as a combination of elements. The soundtrack, the cinematography, and the development of the story. I can see Denzel's character as a Ni user that spent years working and training his way through an SJ heavy military environment until he reached the specialized units doing black side wet-work, which is much more inventive and requires decisiveness based on intuition and out of the box problem solving, as well as a high comfort level working alone for long periods of time while executing individual plans with precision and great flexibility. He eventually payed the psychological cost of severing moral ties with humanity, and meeting the little girl slowly helped him feel human again. Thinking he lost that connection he hadn't had in decades tipped him over the edge. I think Ni in that arena is represented well when his friend described him as an artist, and 'his art is death'. Just my take on it of course.

    Renegade is worth the watch.

    Read the book. The film pales in comparison. Even Lynch does not like it.

    I agree completely. But the OP asked for films.

    I read years ago that he disowned the movie. I can't say I was a fan personally.
    But the book is good. I only read the first few chapters. I just couldn't get into it.

    As for the rest of the topic: Off the top of my head, movies that can be applied to a macro and micro level (i.e.: Ni):

    Blade Runner
    Alien
    No Country for Old Men
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    Unbreakable
    The Dark Knight
    The Empire Strikes Back
