Drug addiction, including alcoholism, is a topic often explored in film. Initially a taboo subject, has now become a global problem of gigantic proportions, which cannot be ignored.
With that in mind, the intent and purpose of this list is to both highlight the number of ways cinema has addressed addiction throughout the years, and for the most part, the positive role it continues to play in raising awareness to this ongoing global issue.
Following, are a number of films, which address addiction from various angles:
In whole or in part.
*Please note: In keeping with the theme of this list; a number of drug-related documentaries have been included: (nos. 662-829).

(Definition from 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 special thanks to fellow IMDb users for their invaluable contributions, and thereby making this list a collaborative effort for all those concerned.

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, 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.

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

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.

(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 1956 Academy Awards, 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.

*Please note:
