Here's a great little video created by Derek Stettler called Reel Wisdom: Lessons from 40 Films in 7 Minutes. The video is pretty much tidbits of wisdom from everal films and compiled together. Here's a note from the creator.
I made this video because I love films and I think there is great wisdom inherent in the film medium. This video represents some of the best wisdom from films, edited together as a single coherent piece of advice on everything from life, death, and purpose, to anger, regret, and destiny. In creating this video, I tried to feature a broad array of films, from action/adventure and sci-fi films, to dramas and traditional/CG animated films in order to show how all genres of film have something important to say.
