8 Movies You Need To See Before You Die

8 Movies You Need To See Before You Die

Some films are a must-see because of the part
they play in our collective cultural conversation. Watching them unlocks a world of references,
pub trivia answers, metaphors, and dinner party icebreakers. But other films are required viewing because
of what they can teach us about love, hope, despair, faith, family, and even—warm and
fuzzy alert—ourselves. Here are just a few movies you need to see… Before Sunrise Regardless of your own romantic track record,
it behooves you to catch Richard Linklater’s 1995 romantic drama Before Sunrise before
you kick the bucket. It’s perhaps the most accurate depiction of
two young people falling in love in cinematic history. And since it takes place in as close to real-time
as most people would be willing to bear, it affords you the privilege of being swept-up
into the ardor—in beautiful Vienna, Austria, no less. It’s like you’re a fly on the wall of a room
two impossibly charming people have built out of pure conversation, on the first day
of a decades-long relationship. Dear Zachary The 2008 documentary Dear Zachary is one of
the rawest, most heart-wrenching depictions of what it means to be a family ever committed
to film. It’s an emotionally devastating love letter
that also requires you to think critically about the meaning of justice, friendship,
and parenting. Just one thing: make sure you watch it with
someone who has already seen you ugly cry, because tears are almost guaranteed. Groundhog Day Harold Ramis’s 1993 comedy fantasy Groundhog
Day is mandatory viewing not only because it’s widely considered a comedy masterpiece
but also because it’s been adopted, and rightfully so, as a sort of Zen guide to self-improvement. “Ugh…” “What?” The fact that Bill Murray’s spiritual makeover
is thoroughly non-denominational makes the film, and its message, all the more universal. The change comes from within and is ultimately
motivated not by a desire to escape his time-prison but to instead improve himself and improve
the lives of those around him. And it’s funny to boot. How could you go wrong? Spotlight In the same family as “All the President’s
Men” – Spotlight shows the power of investigative journalism and how a free press can take down
the powerful; Spotlight is the film for you. The film, which won the Oscar for Best Picture
in 2016, is a tense, dramatic thriller, even though almost all of the action involves people
talking – debating, discussing, and thinking about what the ultimate meaning and importance
of truth is. “We gotta nail these scumbags. We gotta show people that nobody can get away
with this. Not a priest, or a Cardinal, or a freakin’
Pope!” It’s not always an easy film to watch, but
when you’re done, chances are you’ll want to watch it again. O.J.: Made in America Dedicating almost eight hours of your life
to a 2016 documentary series about the O.J. Simpson trial may sound like a lot to ask,
especially to those who already sat through a lifetime of media coverage about the trial
back in 1995. But O.J.: Made in America is less about the
trial itself and more about celebrity, misogyny, Los Angeles, identity, justice, race, and,
yes, the American Dream, including why that dream is off-limits to large parts of the
population. It’s essential, not just to understanding
the O.J. trial, but to understanding our nation as well. Election Alexander Payne’s 1999 comedy Election is
an almost perfect film about high school, politics, class, and infidelity. Set in Nebraska, the film captures the dreary
midwestern sadness and also takes stereotypical characters, the jock, the trying-to-leave-the-closet
lesbian, and the overachiever and masterfully humanizes them.. And of course, there’s Reese Witherspoon’s
masterful performance as the deceitful Tracy Flick. “I don’t know what you’re referring to, but
maybe if certain older, wiser people hadn’t acted like such little babies and gotten so
mushy, then maybe everything would be OK.” Of course, almost everyone in the film is
also a pretty awful person, but hey. This is high school, after all. Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of
Belief If you’ve ever wondered what the big deal
about Scientology is, 2015’s Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief is exactly
the documentary for you. But even if you don’t think you’re interested
in Scientology, the film is a fascinating discourse on blind faith, manipulation, and
the willingness of crowds to follow charismatic leaders, despite all logic and reason. And that’s a message for everyone, no matter
what your religion. Citizen Kane No doubt some of you have avoided watching
1941’s Citizen Kane simply because everyone keeps telling you to see it. But there’s a reason the Orson Welles classic
is considered by many film fans and historians to be the most important, most influential,
and straight up best film of all time. Not only did it innovate all sorts of filmmaking
techniques that are still in use today, it did it in service to a dazzlingly well-told,
thoroughly contemporary story about a rich businessman who uses his money, personal charisma,
and influence over the media to become a powerful politician. “I made no campaign promises, because until
a few weeks ago, I had no hope of being elected.” Some stories – and some movies – are simply
timeless. Thanks for watching! Click the Grunge icon to subscribe to our
