Definition from (http://www.allaboutphilosophy.org/):
Existentialism is a 20th century termed philosophy concerned with human existence, finding self, and the meaning of life through free will, choice and personal responsibility. The belief that people are searching to find out who and what they are throughout life as they make choices based on their experiences, beliefs, and outlook, without the help of laws, ethnic rules, or traditions. Listed below are a number of films which I feel address the human condition in a profound and ultimately, rewarding way. Gaining insight into ourselves and being able to express this with others through these films.

a list of 100 titles
The first thought that came to mind was, how does one possibly compile a list of 100 greatest movies of all time? What is the criteria that one should adhere to? Is it critical opinion, public opinion, popularity, box-office takings, historical significance, cultural impact, awards, ratings, greatest lists or surveys? Or all of the above?
The truth is, film-appreciation is simply not an exact science. It cannot be quantified solely through numbers and statistics.

Though a number of films have deservedly remained consistent on greatest lists, and I do not want to undermine critical or public opinion but, factually, critical opinion and film rankings have constantly evolved and changed over the years. Many films that were once panned, overlooked, or were box-office failures upon release, have over time, been re-evaluated and have since found acclaim as overlooked masterpieces. And, resultantly, these films have since found their way onto greatest lists and surveys. And the same can be said for films that in their heyday were widely praised, only to lose their appeal over time. And then there are those films that have never lost their appeal, either to the individual viewer or to a majority of viewers - even after repeated viewings, over a number years, and even under very different circumstances and cultural divides. Films that have stood the test of time and have continued to grow in stature on a global scale. Therefor, due to a myriad of factors, and because film-appreciation is constantly evolving - an absolute in regards to a universal list of the greatest films of all-time will, thankfully, never be carved in stone or totally agreed upon.

Hypothetically speaking, if film were an exact science, that would mean one's personal feelings regarding the value of a specific film, it's personal spiritual and emotional resonance would not apply to the individual but, determined solely by scientific means. Thus undermining the very principles of which this or any other art-form is based on - the freedom of expression of both artist and observer.

That is not to say there should not be any criteria compiling such a list. There will undoubtedly be various influential factors. Those factors should, however, not solely determine or govern a specific choice. It should instead offer insight in helping to make that choice, deriving one's own conclusions from one's own examination. Therefor, having said that, ultimately the 'criteria' of this list is a purely subjective view of some of the greatest films I've seen, and is not mean't to try and sway or determine the views of others.

And lastly, because all the films listed here are a collective fellowship of films based on their own unique attributes - and therefor I cannot possibly justify one film above the other - there is no specific order.

The second part of a trilogy of 100 greatest movies of all time.
After compiling the first list, it struck me that it would be criminal negligence on my part to neglect a number of films that, I feel, are deserving of being labelled as 100 of the greatest movies of all time. And, once again, after compiling this list, I was once again struck by the fact that I had failed to include a number of essential films. Therefor, not wanting to make one continuous list, I instead opted to make three separate lists. A concept based on the definition of a movie trilogy, which is; "A set of three works that are connected, that can either be seen as a single work or as three individual works."

Returning for the last time.
The third and final installment of my ultimate 100 greatest movies of all time.
Though there are still a number of greatest films that have been excluded from this trilogy, if I had to recommend 300 movies to myself, I can confidently state that all the movies listed in this trilogy would apply. Movies that have not only made an indelible impression but, continue to do so, even after repeated viewings. Yet, it would be very arrogant of me to think that others should or would agree, or try and force an opinion. After all, one of the great joys of watching movies is not only to have the freedom to make up one's own mind, but also the freedom to share that opinion.

Only the lonely: A movie loners list.

(Definition from Wikipedia): A loner is a person who avoids or does not actively seek human interaction or prefers to be alone. There are many reasons for solitude, intentional or otherwise, and 'Loner' does not imply a specific cause. Intentional reasons include spiritual and religious considerations or personal philosophies. Unintentional reasons involve temperament, being highly sensitive, having more extreme forms of shyness, deep seated guilt, or various mental disorders.

There are different types of loner, including individuals that prefer solitude and are content to have very limited social interaction. The second type includes individuals that are forced to be isolated because they are rejected by society (Or, by circumstances beyond their control). This individual typically experiences loneliness. The first type does not feel lonely even when they are alone, at least, not in the same way as would a social person who found themselves isolated. However, these are very broad generalizations and it is not uncommon for loners to experience both of these dimensions at some point.

The concept of of a lonely hero (or antihero) is a recurring theme in film and is often the subject in popular culture.

Listed below are a number of films and quotes, with special emphasize on specific characters, that I feel not only relate to the above description, but also, encompass, reflect, and explore characteristics of the loner's condition.

Definition of racism: 1. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability, and that a particular race is superior to others./ 2. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.

Film has made a significant contribution in exposing this cancer in society, and thereby creating awareness to a very real issue. Have listed a number of films addressing racism and racial issues, from various angles, in whole or in part.
Listing is in chronological order and contains a number of documentary films.

*Please note: This is a researched list, containing some films not personally viewed, as of yet.

"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word." - Martin Luther King (1929-1968).

Film as inspiration.

Film as document.
Film as voice.

"By showing hunger, deprivation, starvation and brutality, as well as endurance and nobility, documentaries inform, prod our memories, even stir us to action. Such films do battle for our very soul."
- Theodore Bikel

It is my firm belief that documentary film not only plays a major role in informing, educating, and raising awareness to issues that affect us all on a global level but, documentaries also have the ability to profoundly affect us on an emotional level. I believe this emotional connection is an essential component when viewed in conjunction with statistics, facts or data. The symbiotic relationship between these two 'components' are, in my view, fundamental. It is the basis that creates the well-informed individual's need and empathy necessary in wanting to become involved, and instrumental in one wanting to make a positive, humanitarian contribution. It is in this regard that documentaries can prove invaluable.

The purpose of this list is to try to inspire as well as highlight important documentaries that address and relate to the universal connection between various facets of the human condition, man and nature, and the ongoing global issues that confront us. This is supported by factual information, as well as the views, statements or quotes from all walks of life - From world leaders, scientists, activists, artists and documentarians, to the 'man-on-the-street'. Though addressed, (and because this list is an attempt at a multilateral approach to it's subject-matter), there is no favoritism nor bias in regards to ethnicity, gender, religion, sexuality, disability, or politics. This list is, however, primarily dedicated in support of those, (living or dead) who have, and continue, to support the inherent good in humanity.

In it's form, I have tried to structure this list as a narrative. A journey from the vast unlimited expanses of the universe to the vast unlimited expanses of ourselves. All of which, I believe, are inter-connected and part and parcel of a common, universal cycle - Life.

(From Wikipedia): The Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film is handed out annually by the U.S.-based Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to a feature-length motion picture produced outside the United States of America with a predominantly non-English dialogue track.

When the first Academy Awards ceremony was held on May 16, 1929 to honor films released in 1927-1928, there was no separate category for foreign language films.
Between 1947 and 1955, the Academy presented Special/Honorary Awards to the best foreign language films released in the United States. These awards, however, were not handed out on a regular basis. No award was given in 1953, and were not competitive since there were no nominees but simply one winning film per year.
For the Academy Awards to honor films released in 1956, held on March 27, 1957, a competitive Academy Award of Merit, known as the Best Foreign Language Film Award, was created for non-English speaking films, and has been given annually since then.

The Best Foreign Language Film Award is not presented to a specific individual. It is accepted by the winning film's director, but is considered an award for the submitted country as a whole.

This is the journalism of empathy." - Jeff McMahon.

Roger Ebert: "One of the gifts a movie lover can give another is the title of a wonderful film they have not yet discovered. Here are more than 300 reconsiderations and appreciations of movies from the distant past to the recent past, all of movies that I consider worthy of being called 'Great'."

Definition from Oxford Dictionaries.com: "A long-term mental disorder of a type involving a breakdown in the relation between thought, emotion, and behaviour, leading to faulty perception, inappropriate actions and feelings, withdrawal from reality and personal relationships into fantasy and delusion, and a sense of mental fragmentation."
Schizophrenia is not rare, the lifetime risk of developing this disorder is widely accepted to be around 1 in 100. Contrary to popular belief, although the delusional thoughts and hallucinations of schizophrenia sometimes lead to violent behavior, most people that suffer from schizophrenia are neither violent nor a danger to others.
Listed below are a number of films that have addressed schizophrenia over the years. And in the process have helped raise awareness to a disorder that affects about 24 million people worldwide.
