Some movies might exist solely for the sake of entertainment, but filmmaking is an art form. And like all art, movies have the power to transform our lives and influence the way we see the world around us. Cinema is a universal language that helps us better understand and connect with others while also helping us learn more about ourselves.

This section aims to introduce you to movies that may have flown under your radar. It also aims to change your perspective on movies you’ve already seen. It’s about shedding light on what makes some of these movies so special that they’ll actually stick with you.

Every person brings their own unique experiences and beliefs with them when they see a film, so no movie is going to have the exact same impact on any two people. But hopefully scrolling through this section will help you stumble upon a movie that resonates with you. Maybe it’s a movie that will inspire you to pick yourself back up and try again. Maybe it’s a movie that will make you feel less alone. Maybe it’s a movie that just might change your life.

I want people to leave the cinema feeling that something’s been confirmed for them about life.
— Danny Boyle
We live in a box of space and time. Movies are windows in its walls. They allow us to enter other minds, not simply in the sense of identifying with the characters, although that is an important part of it, but by seeing the world as another person sees it.
— Roger Ebert
