After witnessing the first ever nuclear test in 1945, J. Robert Oppenheimer was reminded of the words of the Bhagavad Gita: "now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." The atomic bomb is a neat symbol for death: immensely powerful, impossible to resist, terrifying to behold. The bomb was held over the heads of the world's citizens during the Cold War in much the same way that death is held over the heads of humanity: it could happen at any time, and you cannot stop it.

Radiohead -- "Exit Music (For A Film)". I died and went to alt-rock heaven when the bassline came in and facilitated the climax. Thom Yorke is basically getting his Romeo and Juliet on with these lyrics about star-crossed and (therefore) suicidal lovers: "You can laugh a spineless laugh / We hope your rules and wisdom choke you / Now we are one in everlasting peace / We hope that you choke, that you choke / We hope that you choke, that you choke"

Richard Alpert discovers he is aging. Alpert had been granted the gift of agelessness by Jacob. When Jacob is killed, Alpert tries to kill himself because he believes the last 150 years of his life have been meaningless. This proves impossible, and through Hurley, his dead wife tells him that he still has work to do: he must keep the man in black from leaving the island. When the man in black is killed, Alpert finds a grey hair on his head; this causes him to realize that he wants to live.

One of the most gut-wrenching films I've ever seen. It takes place during WWII, the main character, Bruno is the son of a nazi officer and their family lives near a concentration camp. One day Bruno finds the fence surrounding the camp, on the other side of the fence is a boy named Shmuel, who Bruno thinks is wearing "pajamas," he does not know that Shmuel is Jewish and all his father tells him is that "those people are in the camps because they are the enemy."

This is a movie based off the book "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas", if the book did not make you an emotional wreck, the visual aid of the movie is sure to do the job.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.. i looove this movie ~ashley
An amazing, poetic (and quite depressing) film about a man dying from cancer who is struggling to atone for his role as a black marketer in the little time he has left. The film does a great job showing how fragile life can be and how the smallest choice (which you might think does not impact others that much) can change their lives far more than you might notice or think about.

Art for GD album "Blues for Allah" (1975). What does their name mean? According to bassist Phil Lesh, "Jerry picked up an old World Language Dictionary, and in that silvery elf-voice he said to me, 'Hey man, how about the Grateful Dead?'" The definition there was "the soul of a dead person, or his angel, showing gratitude to someone who, as an act of charity, arranged their burial." In the Garcia biography, Captain Trips, author Sandy Troy states that the band was smoking DMT at the time.

When Jedi die, they hang around as translucent images who offer reassuring looks of peace and understanding. At LucasFilms, creativity never dies, and shitty actors can be retroactively inserted as ghosts into movies that were filmed before they were born.

A very unique film about a comet that is about to hit earth and completely obliterate it; Kirsten Dunst plays a depressed woman who is strangely enough looking forward to the inevitable apocalypse while her sister falls all to pieces over it. The film poses an interesting question though; would knowing that your inevitable death in such a scenario be comforting or push you into a nervous breakdown?

La Vita é Bella is a miraculously beautiful film about the Italian holocaust during WWII - it deals heavily with death, loss, grieving, and the fleeting value of human life.

End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path... One that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back and all turns to silver glass... And then you see it. White shores... And beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.

Beck--"Earthquake Weather". This song is my effing jam right here. Unfortunately the only Beck version on YouTube is a poor qual live concert, so this Asian kid will do fine. The chorus is: "I push, I pull, the days go slow / Into a void we fill with death / And noise, at last, falls off their maps / All cured of pain and doubt / In your little brain". For further satisfaction check out the studio cut from "Guero", or watch the other YouTube cover on piano: it's better just no vocals.
