1.   Inception is a 2010 science fiction heist thriller film written, co-produced, and directed by Christopher Nolan, and co-produced by Emma Thomas. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a professional thief who steals information by infiltrating the subconscious, and is offered a chance to have his criminal history erased as payment for a task seemingly-impossible: "inception", the implantation of another person's idea into a target's subconscious. The ensemble cast additionally includes Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ken Watanabe, Tom Hardy, Dileep Rao, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, and Michael Caine.


 2.   Hail, Caesar! is a 2016 American comedy film written, produced, edited and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen. The film stars Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and Channing Tatum. The film is a fictional story that follows the real-life "fixer" Eddie Mannix (Brolin) working in the Hollywood film industry in the 1950s, trying to discover what happened to a cast member who vanishes during filming.


3.  "The Tree of Life" (2011 - U.S.) Written and directed by Terrence Malick, and starring Brad Pitt, Sean Penn, and Jessica Chastain.  The cinematography is spectacular, and this film is considered one of the most beautiful ever made.  "The film chronicles the origins and meaning of life by way of a middle-aged man's childhood memories of his family living in 1950s Texas, interspersed with imagery of the origins of the known universe and the inception of life on Earth." (Not a box office hit - too philosophical and deep in meaning for many people.)


4.  The Color of Paradise (1999 - Iran) This movie is another one of my all-time favorites.  The story revolves around a blind boy named Mohammed, a kid with physical limits, but boundless curiosity and joy.  Mohammed inspires and deeply touches those who know him him.  The film is also an insight into rural village Persian culture in a country that modern Americans know only from the perspective of global politics and conflict.
