Time flows with the ease of change. The change which time bears, may yield a fruitful delicacy or make you voyage through an eccentric Pandora’s box. A kid, who has passed out from school, joins college with the ambition to succeed in life. For this article purposes, I have assumed that a college student is not only the one who is studying in an actual college, but also the one who has entered into a new phase in his/her life, regardless of the age. The beauty of confusion which life offers, especially in that young adult age, can never be understood completely, but it can always be embraced with a sympathetic touch. The touch, which the visual art of cinema offers.
Following is the list of top college movies ever. Bear in mind that since each individual’s psyche is unique, his/her movie choices and experience may vary. You can watch some of these best college movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
12. Trainspotting (1996)
Hit play, and the opening voice-over will rattle your tameable mind. The fabricated reality in which we live, the ammunition of materialistic pleasures and the baseless whim for societal standards are all exposed in this Danny Boyle masterpiece. Addiction of drugs with centralized theme of loneliness, the causality of life’s choices and our mindset, the failures which took the protagonists to that path, the hidden anecdotes of laughter and the eventual consequences of their journey, is what makes Trainspotting an eye-opener movie. Since, college life is a very strong emotional phase that a person goes through, it is for sure that each and every one of its viewer will find a resemblance of his/her life with the movie. Life is not sugar-coated and that’s what Trainspotting portrays.
