10 Life-Changing Philosophical Movies

3º – Persona (Ingmar Bergman, 1966)A nurse is put in charge of an actress who had recently suffered a psychological breakdown. In a state of complete isolation, the two will begin to enter into a cathartic process that will change the way they understood life. ‘Persona’ works with the figure of building social masks in the human being, showing how, at times, we can dress them and forget our own essence.


2º – The Experiment (Oliver Hirschbiegel, 2001)In the plot, several individuals are placed in a prison to participate in a social experiment. There, they will have to live together for a few weeks, dividing themselves into two groups, one formed by prisoners and the other by guards. The problem is that, after some time, things begin to get out of hand, putting everyone’s lives at risk. Coming from German cinema, ‘The Experiment’ explains a little of the rotten core that understands human existence. Here, we will see how we are impacted by a simple social nickname and how we act on it. A disturbing work, but one that undoubtedly deserves the time invested by the fan of the seventh art.


1º – Blade Runner (Ridley Scott, 1982)Raising a futuristic plot permeated by nuances, ‘Blade Runner’ brings the search for a government official to exterminate robots (called replicants) that have broken the paradigm of their primary functions. Directed by the great Ridley Scott, the film presents an alternative construction of an irresistible world, valuing the exhibition of gloomy scenes, also counting on safe performances of his cast.
