Films about old age

by Billy Casper's World

Films revolving around old age and aging.

‘Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light….’ – Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night by Dylan Thomas

“It is old age, rather than death, that is to be contrasted with life. Old age is life’s parody, whereas death transforms life into a destiny: in a way it preserves it by giving it the absolute dimension. Death does away with time.” – Simone de Beauvoir
