More than a simple road-trip, a journey is one that can move throughout spaces separate from our world. Many of the films below do aim for realism on rivers and routes but the majority aim for a more introspective look at the characters embarking on these voyages — rather than the places they are heading for. Magical landscapes, mysterious settings and often dangerous events punctuate the power of the 10 movies below, sometimes to genuinely wonderful effects. All of them are worth sticking on and taking a little trip with. Again, the 10 best introspective movies.
10. The Wizard of Oz
A classic to end all classics, ‘The Wizard of Oz’ continues to be a magical family adventure dripping with gorgeous designs and full of cinematic charm that exceed the limitations of being a film specifically made to share with younger audiences. Disney and Pixar have proved in recent years that their work can compete with and greatly exceed the best ‘adult’ movies of each respective year and I have to say even back in 1939 Wizard of Oz goes some way into facing off against ‘Gone With the Wind’. A fine example of a simple script with underlying intentions you don’t need to see to appreciate the winder appeal of the picture. Beautiful, enduring and just damn good fun.
9. Bonnie & Clyde
