Can anyone recommend new (or even older) films that just stay with you? I'm talking about movies that make you feel good while you're watching them and then make you feel that way long after the credits have rolled. They're the type of movies that you'll tell others, "You have to see this one." For me, "Strictly Ballroom," "Lars and the Real Girl," and "The Visitor," all films I've seen in last few months (yes, I'm behind on movie viewing!) were like that, but it's hard to find such gems. It seems the DVDs we rent/download are all mostly disappointing. There must be intelligent, feel-good, quality films being made!
What a great question. I love to pass on good books, that I feel are insperational. So why not do the same in film.
Mine may be ones you have seen, but just in case, I would love you to see...

Do you know someone who is smarter than you are, and how do you feel about that person?EG:- You find yourself saying things like "She thinks she knows everything". In your head you hear the corollary "She DOES know everything and that is why she is so annoying."

Are you intimidated by someone with a higher education than you?Do you feel dumber, that you can't compete or just insecure that they know more than you?

I have often wondered about this. I personally have no education beyond that of High School. I do not hold any special qualifications and think of myself as being average in intelligence. I do read a lot and pay attention to as much as I can as a habit. If there is text I read it, even a cheesy ad...
