15 Films That Linger in Your Thoughts

A handful of outstanding films go beyond merely entertaining or stimulating our imagination—they echo and dwell effortlessly in our minds. They nestle into the hidden crevices of our thoughts, with the potential to shape our character.

These movies have the strange power to stick with you, much like a haunting song or a vivid dream.

Hostel (2005)

Eli Roth has deftly played on our profound apprehension of the unfamiliar; how can you be sure that locals aren't talking about you when you don't speak their language?

1984 (1984)

While Animal Farm is probably only remembered while you're watching the news, 1984 has crept into our reality. George Orwell so effectively exposes hypocrisy and corruption that he almost had two places on this list.

Beautiful Boy (2010)

The movie portrays Maria Bello and Michael Sheen as the parents of a teenager who shot his friends and then himself. It's a brutal movie to watch since these parents are not only grieving their kid's loss but also dealing with guilt and never-ending regrets.

When The Wind Blows (1986)

Raymond Briggs created it as a graphic novel. It's a sad and depressing tale of an old couple who constructed a shelter after receiving a nuclear attack warning from the government.

United 93 (2006)

This portrayal of brave passengers who did their part to escape a catastrophe uses simple storytelling to tremendous emotional effect. 

Earthlings (2005)

This horrifyingly violent and unforgettable documentary examines all the various ways we utilize animals, including pets, food, and entertainment, using hidden film shot over six years.
