Dune
4.  Dune DVD Francesca Annis
The list author says:
  "The great Frank Herbert novel brought Dune's desert world to life, with the use of sound as a weapon, self-discipline, the cosmic dimensions of a galatic conspiracy, intriguing family and the God Emperor of Dune.

Siddhartha
5.  Siddhartha DVD ~ Shashi Kapoor

The Black Stallion
10.  The Black Stallion DVD ~ Kelly Reno
The list author says:
  "The original Farley book is magically filmed and produced, taking us far beyond a children's tale, the mystical quality of the Island, the unity of boy and horse, surviving together, like God and souls must. Beausepolis indeed, Alexander's great horse lives forever as does this film."
$9.01   Used & New from: $0.17

Cool Hand Luke (Deluxe Edition)
11.  Cool Hand Luke (Deluxe Edition) DVD ~ Paul Newman
The list author says:
  "Paul Newman's at his peak, the actual story of the imprisoned man, not just by nature, or society, but by himself. His walk along his own path takes him away from the world, and people. Beautiful framework and the matryr's spiritual choice to live in chains, or die in freedom. And a fun cool story to boot."

Humorous and playful adventurism, the fight against military control, the spiritual search, and the reality of awareness. Man being himself. Includes a love story and the good heart. Part I, like all originals, is the best."

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (236 customer reviews)

Fitzcarraldo
13.  Fitzcarraldo DVD ~ Klaus Kinski
The list author says:
  "The epic covers the building of an opera house in the jungle, a truly crazed notion brought to true realism, one has to wonder at the futility of man, his excesses or the underlying cause of all motivations, and experience. This lesson portends the need of both spritual and physical purpose. Loved the sensationalism and the providence. There is a dimension beyond the norm."
$69.15   Used & New from: $19.98
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (81 customer reviews)

The Sound of Music (Two-Disc 40th Anniversary Special Edition)

Lost Horizon
17.  Lost Horizon DVD ~ Ronald Colman

Love is pure, and we find the master as the High Llama who speaks with true serenity, and exudes this key principle. The seeker would rather die than lose the vision of heaven. Magical film of the greatest period in filmmaking history (1939). The book is as good or better."

18.  Woodstock: Three Days of Peace & Music (Two-Disc 40th Anniversary Director's Cut) DVD ~ The Who
The list author says:
  "Yes, of course Woodstock is spiritual. It is the mystique of humanity, coming together for 3 days of peace and music. Of course it's also in the rain and mud. Taking woodstock is not bad either. Thanks to the artists who played, and Jimi Hendrix for the coda. True magic has a way of being forever."

Doctor Zhivago (45th Anniversary Edition)
19.  Doctor Zhivago (45th Anniversary Edition) DVD ~ Geraldine Chaplin
The list author says:
  "There is a transcendental beauty in the David lean film, set in Russian revolution made by the Brits going beyond the basic historic love and war story. In the characters raised up by cinematic experience, we find our spiritual sense is heightened, and the appreciation for life is exhumed. Perfection is."

The Greatest Story Ever Told
20.  The Greatest Story Ever Told DVD ~ Max von Sydow

22.  The Lovely Bones DVD ~ Saoirse Ronan
