Top 25: Nominations for Spiritually Significant Films on Growing Older

Recommended Posts

I think this topic is finally starting to click for me after several days of struggling with it (which explains why I haven't posted any nominations ... yet).

I'll start with a couple of seconds: The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp and Limelight

I second Lost in Translation and Summer Hours. I'd have to see Mirror again with the "Growing Older" notion in mind before nominating it--I love the film, I'm just not sure it fits this theme as well as it does "Memory."
