Movies with Meaning – the complete list

Each week for many months I wrote a “Movies with Meaning” post. From mid June 2018, I’ve suspended that weekly structure so such posts may be more sporadic, allow more #Flow if you will. This list, though, will remain highlighted for readers to be inspired to search for one on the site, view a trailer, get my thoughts, then perhaps watch it themselves !

You may have watched them, you may not. Either way, this is an offer to you to search on a movie title from the list below, follow to the post where it is featured, along with a meaning linked to the movie, then watch (or rewatch) through that lens.

Oh, and when you search on the movie title, sometimes you may find more than one post. There is no search error there, some are featured two or more times with different meanings and themes! Three movies featured multiple times are :
