#1 Dead Poets Society 1989 – the tragic story of a profeessor, ahead of his time, who tries and makes his students “suck the marrow out of life” by making them freethinkers.

“Truth, like a blanket that always leaves your feet cold.
You push it, stretch it, it will never be enough
Kick it beat it, it will never cover any of us.
From the moment we enter crying, to the moment we leave dying…”

Thus spake Todd Anderson in Dead Poet’s Society

2) Field of Dreams 1989 – Field of Dreams is sentimental, but in the best way; it’s a mix of fairy tale, baseball, life after death and family togetherness. I am rendered speechless in its vision and grandeur.

#3 K-PAX 2001 – alien? or basket case? or are the 2 inextriably linked? A story of psychology, spirituality, faith and redemption by “finding the blue bird of spring

#4 The Horse Whisperer 1998 – Robert Redford, Kristen Scott Thomas and Scarlett Johansson are inextricably linked in this story of a man (not unlike Monty Ferret) and his ability to get inside a horse’s head.

What Dreams May Come 1998
You Don’t Know Jack 2010
