Inception Report Abuse
Does anything real exist? Really? How do you know that something is real? Is there a way to infiltrate a person's dreams, or even their subconscious to plant an idea? All of these questions and more are addressed in INCEPTION.

The Fountain Report Abuse
The fountain can be hard to watch the first time. The second time through you will find yourself stunned. The third time through on the edge of your seat. And the fourth time through will have you crying in amazement. A truly complex and multi-layered movie.

Garden State Report Abuse
At first it was a quirky romantic dark comedy esque movie. But I couldn't stop thinking about how in the end, although it's cliche, love is all you need/ conquers all and everyone's depressed/ unimpressive/ and freaks but it's okay. "You gotta hear this one song, it'll changed your life!"

Sometimes the most important things are not what you'd think. This movie takes a look at what it is that we are all searching for, though we may not realize it.

Eternal Sunshine in the Spotless Mind Report Abuse
If you were devasted from a broken heart would you erase that person from your memories forever if you could? And if you were meant to be do you think you would find your way back to each other?

Babel Report Abuse
An excellent example of the power of communication - or the lack of it - and just how connected everyone is, even though they may not realize it.
