Tell Me About Your Isolation (and movies)...

mood: indescribable



I have been quite out of it lately. Quitting smoking has been really rough on me.

It's interfered with my studies. It's made it difficult to get a night's rest. It's strained relationships with friends. It's made me a grumpy asshat.

I bought the Riddick trilogy DVD pack today because Drew mentioned it. I wanted fast film.

I am looking for movies that deal thematically with isolation.

Examples:

The Abyss
Revolutionary Road
Pitch Black
Event Horizon
Johnnie Got His Gun
Jerry
Requiem for a Dream
Lord of The Flies
The Diving Bell and Butterfly
Cast Away

If you can suggest any movies heavily weighted thematically on isolation, please let me know.

Well the canonical answer is Cast Away.

Also, Broken Flowers, which is one of my favorite movies.

Also, Taxi Driver. How could I have forgotten. Did you ever watch that?

I've seen it in fits and starts. I'll burn it again and check it out in full.

You'll probably hate Broken Flowers.

The Machinist? United States of Leland? Donnie Darko? (which they're making a sequel to, I saw recently. Or another in the series, anyway.)

And I watched I've Loved You So Long recently, which was in French, but that woman was fairly isolated.
