Are there any movies that have inspired you spiritually? I don't care if it's Jewish, Christian, or Neo-Pagan. I just thought a recommended thread of inspiring films could be cool.

My reccomendations:

Walk on Water -- amazing film from Israel about spiritual awakening, love, and sharing.

The Fountain -- Very strange movie, but one which causes one to think deeply and look at themselves, time, and the universe in a different light.

Facing the Giants
The Hope
Passion of the Christ



And even though this movie isn't considered "religious" in nature...this is one of my all time favorite movies...PAY IT FORWARD

I love everything that the movie stands for in regards to helping others, but I especially love the unselfishness of the boy willing to risk his own life (similar to the sacrifice Jesus made for us) to protect and save the life of a friend.

The mods may delete me because they think I'm being snarky...
but I thought Orgazmo was an uplifting movie with a genuinely positive message.

The Last Temptation of Christ.

Quote:
The carpenter Jesus of Nazareth, tormented by the temptations of demons, the guilt of making crosses for the Romans, pity for men and the world, and the constant call of God, sets out to find what God wills for him. But as his mission nears fulfillment, he must face the greatest temptation: the normal life of a good man. Based, not on the Gospels, but on Nikos Kazantzakis' novel of the same name.
