Crop And Save
This is a trail left for kindred movie watchers. If you generally like the movies I've listed, you might like others I suggest. I've only listed films that I can recall and will probably watch again. There are some movies like "The Deer Hunter" that I recall being good but which haven't left enough of an imprint on me and I'm in no hurry to watch again.
I. ETHICAL OR ARTISTIC MOTIVATION
1a. Characters help each other, especially with regard to furthering science, medicine, or education or mastering some type of artistic expression.
1b. The characters strive for the well being of animals or the environment rather than improving each other directly.
II. NATURAL WORLDVIEW
2a. The main characters operate primarily within the natural world and are not motivated by supernatural considerations; however some leeway is granted for inner flights of fancy, dream sequences, or the literary devices of magical realism and allegory.
2b. The main characters begin with supernatural beliefs which prove harmful or ineffective and so they give up on supernatural causation at some point in the story.
III. OPPOSITION TO SUPERSTITION (Optional)
3a. Optional. Some spurious division is overcome, such as race, class, religion, gender, ethnicity, etc., and the characters find their commonality in humanity.
3b. Optional. Some rigid or harmful orthodoxy or tradition is challenged, allowing a new flowering of human creativity.
