The 10 Best Movies That Explore Human Mortality

There is a saying by David Wark Griffith (often wrongly attributed to Jean-Luc Godard) that all one needs to make a movie is a girl and a gun. Sex and death are definitely the two things that are sure to sell, and both are featured prominently in cinema as we know it today, but they mostly function as plot details and do not necessarily make the spectator ponder about them in a deeper sense. Mortality is a fundamental part of the human condition, so movies with a more central role of mortality deserve more attention.
Not all of the movies in this list have mortality as the main subject, but all of them say something interesting about it. These dramas explore mortality in a way that can inspire our personal outlook.
