10 Flicks: Movies That Explore One Character

Character studies.  Character analysis.

Character driven movies…

Movies that explore one character’s rise and/or fall fascinate me.

Movies with interesting and iconic characters that reasonate are incredible achievement.  Every movie fan has a different connection to these powerful characters and that’s what makes them unique.

Everyone relates differently.  Everyone has a favorite.

At the end of the day, movies that focus on one character’s life and the challenges they encounter are truly works of art.

Here are 10 of my favorites:

Cast Away

Chuck Noland

Into The Wild
