Believe it or not but .... The lion king. It did open up my eyes to the world around me and that is that it isn't a safe and secure place as i thought. and it helped me understand things about family as well, and well it changed my life for the better i think

Hi clairesstrange, I was particularly impressed with the concept behind The Matrix series of films. They didn't actually change the way that I look at things, but they did crystallize my view of reality somewhat by presenting a bleak future world in which humans lived in an imaginary world, unaware of the dark and scary real world which was dancing to an entirely different script just beyond the limits of their perception. I took The Matrix idea to be an allegory for our actual situation here in the material world, where what appears to be the full extent of reality is just a temporal illusion which masks a greater reality just beyond the limits of our perception. A greater reality, perhaps, where the forces of good and evil also battle out of sight, out of mind for most of us.

"In America" because it resonated the concept of family and the appreciation for life and the connection that we have for people in life. "Sideways" because it resonated in my soul, with the deep despondency that the film showed. "Waking Life" because it open up a world of possibilities and the beauty of lucid dreams and creative thinking.
