This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@NapoleonWilson I am not looking on HOW to find ... but I am interested on finding them and listen to others people opinions and each one interpretations –  Dryadwoods Jun 30 '14 at 8:41
Unfortunately though, movie recommendation questions are currently off-topic. But instead of close-voting for "off-topic" or "primarily opinion-based" I chose to link the close-vote with a possible way to still find your answer. But I tend to agree that close-voting for the proper reason and putting the link into a separate comment might have been the clearer way, sorry. –  Napoleon Wilson Jun 30 '14 at 8:45

Stranger Than Fiction: It talks about consciousness of your own death; what life would be like if you knew you had a narrator in the background detailing everything that you have done and will do, including future surprises that you weren't supposed to know about.

You Don't Know Jack: It's a biopic about Jack Kevorkian, the famed euthanizer. It's really good though, makes you wonder why we value life in the first place, and when it does stop being valuable.

Ikiru: It is a Kurosawa film about a guy who finds out he has deadly cancer and goes on to attempt to find out what it means to live and achieve it in his last months. It's very good.

The Grey: The movie is actually about dealing with mortality, the wolves there are just a metaphor for death.

A really must watch, The Seventh Seal: It is about a man who seeks answers about life, death, and the existence of God as he plays chess against the Grim Reaper during the Black Plague.

Darren Aronofsky's The Fountain: One of the most beautiful films I have ever seen in my entire life. It's entirely about mortality and the human condition.

Thanks for our contribution :) I will check them out. I will wait a little bit more for others lists before choosing the "correct" answer. –  Dryadwoods Jun 30 '14 at 10:05
