What with all the resolutin', ball-droppin' and promises-not-yet-broken, I'm in the mood for My Top 5: Movies That Made Me A Better Person
In no particular order.
The Last Temptation Of Christ - Watching an almost-human Jesus struggle with his destiny and decisions helped me in my personal evolution regarding spirituality. It was an important step in my letting go of the need to have a supernatural deity monitoring my every move.
Roots - The TV mini-series taught this tweener, from a 98.8% all-White West Virginia county, a lot about history and a lot about life.
To Kill A Mockingbird - Want a lesson in in integrity? Pop in the DVD.
12 Angry Men - The original flick helped me recognize the most obvious answer isn't always the correct answer. Add to that the idea that if a human life is at stake, you put in the time.
Schindler's List - The movie that reminded me that sticking my head in the sand doesn't make the odds against me any better.
