Five movies I watched this year, for the first time, that actually help me aspire to be a better person. Perhaps in very different ways, each of these films helped me see something beautiful in being human and helped me toward trying to be a more gracious and loving person.
1. 127 Hours (or, for that matter, all Danny Boyle movies)
2. Ponyo and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (or, for that matter, all Hayao Miyazaki movies)
3. City of God
5. The Bicycle Thief
