The Ecstasy of Wilko Johnson.

Yes to Tokyo Story and Mulholland Drive. Both of them blew my mind when I watched them as a teenager. Profound isn’t a word that springs to mind when thinking about Forrest Gulp though!

Koyaanisqatsi. It's a visual essay about the planet & our interaction with it.

Profound is quite hard I’m sure I’m forgetting some

Short Term 12 in a children’s home amazing acting and made me cry a lot

Good Will Hunting was good too

MarshaBradyo Wed 13-May-20 13:22:12

Rabbit Proof Fence too

Fanthorpe I remembered Whistle Down the Wind from when I was a child (it was filmed near where my grandmother lived at the time). I saw it again earlier this year and now realise how much imagery there is that had passed me by when I was younger. I agree, it is a very profound film.
