What's the movie that most made you deeply reflect on the meaning of life?

Movies that made you deeply reflect on your own life. What is the most thought-provoking film you've ever watched?
One film that truly left me in awe and sparked deep contemplation is "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" (2004) directed by Michel Gondry. It took me on a profound journey through the complexities of love, memory, and the human experience.
As I immersed myself in the story, I couldn't help but reflect on the intricate layers of relationships and the impact they have on our lives. The film follows Joel (played by Jim Carrey) and Clementine (played by Kate Winslet), who undergo a procedure to erase each other from their memories. Witnessing their journey, I found myself questioning the nature of love itself.
The movie challenged me to ponder the significance of memories and how they shape our identities. It made me question whether it's better to hold onto the memories, both beautiful and painful, or to let them go in order to move forward. It forced me to confront the cyclical nature of love and the patterns we often find ourselves trapped in.
Through its imaginative storytelling and stunning visuals, "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" provoked me to reflect on my own experiences of love and loss. It made me contemplate the delicate balance between vulnerability and self-preservation in relationships. It reminded me of the value in embracing the complexities of human connections, even if they bring pain along the way.
This thought-provoking film left an indelible mark on me, urging me to appreciate the richness of life's experiences and the transformative power of love. It prompted discussions and introspection, and it remains a cinematic masterpiece that continues to resonate deeply within me. Have you guys watched it, what did you think? What were some other movies that you found especially thought provoking? What is a movie that really made you contemplate life after watching it?

Contact is a good example of story where an open mind can give you imagination to see things differently.
Although ironically the protagonist then has to try and convince the powers that be that she's not crazy and everything she saw was real.
