I recommend Upstream Color (2013).

Only 10 minutes in, and I'm already hooked :eek:

Dialogue excerpt:

I have to apologize. I was born with a disfigurement where my head is made of the same material as the sun. It makes it impossible for you to look directly at me. It has always been this way.

The water before you is somehow special. When you drink it you feel revived and full of energy. It is better than anything you've ever tasted. Take a drink now.
Also, on the desk (in the movie) lies the book "Walden And On The Duty Of Civil Disobedience".

Another one...

Finally found it on YouTube, of all places...

The Mysterious Stranger (1982), based on Mark Twain's unfinished work.

Besides the fraudulent medieval alchemist and some funny German accents, if you watch until the end, there are some cool exchanges pertaining to Liberation.

I have no doubt Mark Twain was an accomplished Lucid Dreamer!

Alchemical maybe, but it got me thinking a lot, children's movies seem to be way deeper than the holy mountain, LOL

This one is an old favourite of mine. If you have not seen it, then do. The whole film can be watched on YouTube (but you got to sign in to show you are 18+).
