these are films that really capture what it means to be alive - in my (and commenters’) opinion(s). they always give me a little kick up the bum when i'm unmotivated or stuck in a rut. some are feel-good, some are sad, but all are very important. every emotion is evident in these films. I guess this list is saying "life's too short" - too short to not take risks, too short to regret things you never did, too short to miss out on experiences of, both, happiness and pain. a spectrum of emotions is what makes us human; what makes us real.
