Movies To Watch Before You Die
About This Show
Movies to Watch Before You Die is a weekly podcast that breaks down some of the most important films ever made. Not just good movies, or even great movies, but the bare minimum films you need to experience before this cruel world steals your last dying breath.
These are movies that affect you so deeply, that you begin to experience change within yourself after seeing them. Movies that make you question what it means to be alive or to be in love. Movies that shape your character in such a profound way that you are a remarkably better person for having seen them. Movies that make you think for days or weeks or years on end about what you just watched and what it actually means.
