    Forgot to throw Batman: The Dark Knight onto my list.

    I'd also highly recommend Gattaca, if not for philosophy, for entertainment alone.

    I liked these as well, but Holy Mountain and Enter the Void might be hard for some people to sit through,

    Ran
    Rashomon
    Devil's Advocate
    The Holy Mountain
    Enter the Void
    12 Angry Men
    Ghost in the Shell
    Scientology and the Prison of Belief

    Serial Experiments Lain was a pretty decent philosophical anime tv show.

    12 Angry Men is an excellent movie. I suppose that movie is buried deep in my brain. I like the idea of somebody being able to use logic to convince people to go ahead and do the right thing and adhere to the right principles.

    I haven't seen the movie, but Ghost in the Shell is an excellent series. Anything dealing with the boundaries between humans and machines is bound to interest me.

    Finally, Holy Mountain is also incredible. I rewatched it a few weeks ago, and "got it" in a way I didn't get it before. Things clicked that didn't click. Before, I just thought it was a crazy movie, but I couldn't piece together what it was actually saying. Now I think I get it. My favorite segment is probably the Pantheon Bar and Grill, where most of the seekers for the Holy Mountain get stuck. And of course, who can forget Axon of Neptune's sanctuary? (Also, the Enneagram symbol makes an appearance in several places.)

    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Oh yeah add 12 angry men. Also for TV, Twilight Zone or bust. Kinda cheating but I looked online for more, I liked The Green Mile, not sure if it is really philosophical but i liked it. Personally Shawshank Repemption is high as a kite on my list. Might be a bit corny, but to Kill a Mockingbird is good if you havent already seen it. One flew over the cuckoos nest, K-Pax. Stranger than fiction, that one I liked. Anyways they might not all be what you would generally consider deeply philosophical, but most of them can make you think.

    I want to recommend you some polish movies. Otherwise I wouldn't be myself.

    "Decalogue" K. Kieślowski- miniseries which is variation about ten commandments
    “Talking heads” K. Kieślowski- documentary about people different age answering simple questions about themselves (who they are, what is the most important for them)
    “Life as a fatal sexually transmitted disease” K. Zanussi – old man dying, reconsidering his opinion about life and death
    “Squint your eyes” A. Jakimowski- about the young girl who runs away from home and about the moments that passed away

    Z Buck McFate I really like "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead" it is so funny


    From the new movies- "Her" is somehow (ethically/ sociologically) interesting.

    Gattaca appeared on this thread more then once now. I guess I'm going to have to see it.
