list of films

Below is a list of movies that have influenced my personal philosophy through the power of their story telling.

1. Fight Club 

“You’re not your job.  You’re not how much money you have in the bank.  You’re not the car you drive.  You’re not the contents of your wallet.  You’re not your fucking khakis.  You’re the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world. ”

Based in the novel by Chuck PalahniukFight Club really spoke to how my friends and I were feeling at the time about the world.

2. The Matrix 

The Matrix offered us a glimpse into a future we are still becoming.

3. The Battleship Potemkin 

4. Trainspotting 

This movie got me excited about watching movies that came from other countries.

5. ∏ 

This black and white film by Darren Aronofsky about the insane world of mathematicians blew my away while introducing the world to this amazing director.

6. The Harder They Come 

This is one of the first movies about Jamaica by Jamaicans highlights the pitfalls of stardom.

7. Fast, Cheap and Out of Control 

8. Amores Perros 

9. Salt of the Earth 

Blacklisted for labor and immigrant issues.

10. Pulp Fiction 

And of course…
