    Gattaca gattaca gattaca

    Um

    Sling Blade

    Im surprised no one else has said pleasantville I sort of liked that movie. It was similar to the Truman Show ish, not quite as good but interesting none the less. I already said that I think though.

    Gosh I wish I could recommend more movies that were based on books but the movie versions are so much worse...

    Um flightplan?

    What Maisie knew.. Or saw? Not sure if its knew or saw

    Timetravelers wife... Although this movie usually just leaves my mind in a total dissarray

    Life of pi... Ending is open to interpretation. I thought the book itself was trying to be a bit too deep but that it just wasnt really hitting what they were tring to hit.

    Oh and I really liked Gone Girl

    Not sure if "Gone Girl" is philosophical in the way intended, but it does really explore the operation of the media and how there are "sides" to stories but none are necessarily the "most honest story." Everything is spin. As a movie, it has its ups and downs, but I did find it an interesting study in media; hell, they even have the Nancy Grace clone admitting she herself is just offering spin, for her own particular reasons.

    The Man from Earth is my absolute favorite movie. It's mostly a dude talking to his colleagues about having lived a long time -- experiences, thoughts, etc. It takes place in exactly one set.

    Saw Ex Machina today, it certainly qualifies in terms of exploring artificial intelligence and what might be considered sentient life. (the movie is actually kind of disturbing in that regard, it smacks into exploitation and captivity head-on.)

    Does Cloud Atlas count as a philosophical movie? I feel like it does. Especially the segments with Sonmi-451. Fantastic movie that I highly recommend.

    Oh yes, I haven't seen it yet, but trailers are looking very well. And it's about asking questions most intriguing in sf, so...

    Saw Boyhood today, and while I am not exactly sure what I would exactly call it, I would recommend it.

    It is more like trying to give a glimpse of the realities of someones life, the good the bad and the ugly, and taking what you can from it, without changing anything from what it actually is. Not exactly sure I can put it into words well enough, but I would say that it is definately worth watching.
