Existential Films

by TheRaptureSea

Existentialism is a 20th century philosophy concerned with human existence, finding self, and the meaning of life through free will, choice and personal responsibility. The belief that people are searching to find out who and what they are throughout life as they make choices based on their experiences, beliefs, and outlook, without the help of laws, ethnic rules, or traditions. Listed below are a number of films which I feel address the human condition in a profound and ultimately, rewarding way. Gaining insight into ourselves and being able to relate this notion with others through these films.
