10 Great Movies About the Existential Dread of Getting Old

"Generally, feelings of existential dread follow a time in a person's life when they have been forced to come face-to-face with their own mortality–with the inevitability of their death. Feeling existential dread can lead people to examine their place within the world, to consider the meaninglessness of their actions, and sometimes to regret the life that they have so far lived. Because of this, existential dread often accompanies the process of aging. Existential dread is an emotion that has been widely explored by artists, authors, and filmmakers over time, testifying to its universality."
