Groundhog Day (1993): thematic roots in Buddhist and existential philosophy
Analyze how Groundhog Day (1993) has thematic roots in Buddhist and existential philosophy, particularly Friedrich Nietzsche’s concept of eternal recurrence, and how it offers a compelling look at the process of change and approaching a more authentic existence.
Bill Murray does a convincing job portraying the various stages of the path, making his transformation from cynical/nihilistic to genuinely kind-hearted believable.
Movies based on interpretation of Quantum Mechanics
Summarize the concept of Quantum Mechanics and provide a list of movies based on interpretation of it. For example, Coherence (2013) is based on quantum mechanics, referring to a quantum state, where different versions of reality can still interchange with each other. Are there any other movies focusing on the same concept? Triangle (2009) and Timecrimes (2007) comes into mind…

Andreea, please see the comment the author Antebellum left below. Thanks.
Josh, consider joining us as a writer.
For a while back, I stayed a week at Ingmar Bergman’s biggest cabin on a beautiful island in Sweden named Fårö. I am a writer and director (outside of my work here at The Artifice) so every year, a few creatives are invited to stay at his inspiring spaces. I went there to flesh out our feature film project and it was profoundly productive.
Super atmospheric. Every space in the cabin was decorated in a way for you to get inspired to write. It was also really interesting to go through his private film collection. A lot of surprises there.
One of the most interesting things was how he wrote ideas all over his house – on everything. For example, next to his bed, you can see random writing sketched on a wooden table.
Anyway, a small trivia for you which you didn’t ask for!

Not sure why it doesn’t state this on the credit area. We will look into this straight away.
Fixed. Thank you!
RIP Isao Takahata.
Whenever we lose one of the greats, it should be a common practice to share articles about their stellar line of work, rather than ad-heavy recycled articles about their death.
Thank you very much for the lovely retrospective.
