1. Ben Hur
One of the best pictures in the history of film, this is the classic story of the slave becoming a liberator. The quest for freedom leads the character to find the Truth. He will be ultimately transformed and he will put his life for this purpose. That which he has become, will inspire many others to discover within themselves what they didn’t expect, and transform the mankind.
2. The Bourne Ultimatum
Voted the best American picture of this century [en, php], this spy action movie is based on Robert Ludlum’s novel and updated to portray current days events, in one of the best elaborate screenplays since Mission: Impossible. The story of the Jason Bourne, a spy who had his identity and memories deleted, is a rough portrait of the modern CIA and an excellent character study. With 3 well-deserved Oscars, the picture is absolutely a must-see to get a feel of the world we live in.
3. The Bourne Supremacy
Although not at the level of its follow-up, “The Bourne Supremacy” is a very good spy movie about a man who decides to take up a fight against CIA. He doesn’t know who he is. His made just made up his mind. The character played by Matt Damon is Jason Bourne, one of the finest executed character portraits in this century in the Hollywood cinema. I recommend you watch this movie before “The Bourne Ultimatum”. The Bourne trilogy starts with “The Bourne Identity” but that is not such a good movie.
This very intelligent spy thriller on concealed identities takes place in the corporate world. The whole story develops in layers, so that only, in the end, you are truly able to understand the whole action. I like the movie very much because it offers a structure to understand the deeper intentions of each human being. The layers of identities are being unraveled with intensity and suspense. Personal development teaches us that we are the architects of our life. Take a better look at a new meaning for this idea!
5. Regarding Henry
Written by J(effrey).J. Abrams, directed by Mike Nichols, played by Harrison Ford and Annette Bening, this is one of those movies long ignored in the history of film that poses great treasures to think about. A great attorney is shot and loses his memory. He becomes a totally different person, learning not only how to walk and how to talk, but also the values which define him as a human being. A great medicine for the corporate people of the busy today, I recommend it to all those who want to remember what really matters in life.
