Post What have films taught you about life?
Not all films. Just a personal selection.

It would be nice to hear, as I think fiction plays an important part in forming our views on life and the world

Like the quote in V for Vendetta, "artists use lies to tell the truth"

Be interested to hear from folk on this ...

Not much. The Rosebud thing was a very powerful reminder that foregoing fun for accomplishment is not a good trade off as both are transient. I assume for those that find fun in accomplishment there isn't much in it, but when my stress levels are running high I think Rosebud.

That mercy was invented by dinosaurs who have left no descendants.

I've not had any practical application for it, but Tuco seems to have good advice.
