Some movies have a way of inspiring us like others don’t.
These movies make my heart go through that familiar feeling of following a rhythm. I feel like I’m watching a symphony; slowly rising, then bouncing energetically, and then crescendo-ing into a feeling of powerful doing. I say powerful doing because all of these movies that I list make me want to get the doing done. They stir up the most deepest of emotions and then make me feel invincible.
Clint Eastwood’s Invictus: the power of man
Albert Lamorisse’ The Red Balloon: the joy of being a child
Walter Salles’ The Motorcycle Diaries: the unwavering determination of youth
