Inspirational films

I'm going on a long travel in November, and I'm planning to stock up on movies on my iPod before I leave.
So my question to you is;

Which film inspires you the most, and why? And please post at least one picture from the film!


Lost in Translation
I love the colours in this movie. I love the sounds, and the melancholy. And I love the concept of exploring a city the way that she does. Here are a couple of pictures;







Breakfast at Tiffany's
I just adore Audrey Hepburns style in this movie. I always get inspired to be stylish and girly when I watch this film. And I love the music and "Cat", the "no-name slob". ;)





Tell me yours!
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind;



Love the story, the colours, the music. Just, ♥.

Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain;



Well, i don't think i have to tell anything, ;).

And for a bit humor, The Big Lebowski;



Well, it's the duuuude! :D

And for some shooting and humor, The Usual Suspects;



Really mindfucking! :)

Enjoy!


Currently, Brideshead Revisited, mainly for Ben Whishaw's performance and the prettiness.





Somehow I completely forgot to include why it's inspiring... Haha, my apologies.

I adore this film because even though deep down we all know this world is pretty damn wonderful, watching this just really makes you think it. Anytime I catch myself feeling apathetic or jaded this film just wakes me up. It makes me want to get out and see everything!
The Lives of Others; a sad, brilliant story. It's all in German, but is so entrancing, it pulls you in.



Also, like, any Claire Danes movie (say what you want, I like her). She makes me feel like I should be a better girl, if that makes any sense (not girlier or something just...I don't know. It's hard to explain). Some examples:

Stardust


Stage Beauty

(plus, grar Billy Crudup)

Shop Girl
I second Eternal Sunshine and Amelie.
and especially Baraka!
my most inspirational films are along the same lines of Baraka.

The Qatsi Trioloy!
Godfrey Reggio = director. Philip Glass = music. Ron Fricke (director of Baraka)= cinematography.
absolutely amazing.
Like Baraka, it's all real!

Koyaanisqatsi: Life out of Balance.


Powaqqatsi: Life in Transformation


Naqoyqatsi: Life as war


the first is my favorite, inspiration-ally speaking.
Garden State:

Pans Labyrinth:

Love Actually:

Edward Scissorhands:

The Prestige:

V for Vendetta:

i second the motorcycle diaries, pan's labyrinth, and any jean-pierre jeunet or wes anderson directed movie.

little miss sunshine.



i also really love a movie with good animation. : ) movies like the last unicorn, anything studio ghibli/hayao miyazaki, classic disney movies, and the like.. bring back a lot of fond memories for me.



Seachd: The Inaccessible Pinnacle










Because it connects me to my roots & is a celebration of Gaelic language, culture and folklore.
