    Movies with themes of solitude, loneliness and isolation

    They are themes of importance to me, but I do not know many good movies that convey them. Any suggestions?

    About all I can think of myself is Taxi Driver and May, and while both are good movies, neither are what I'm looking for...

    EDIT: My pursuit of movies of this kind led me to an Icelandic masterpiece called Noi the Albino. Although it has a romantic subplot, which generally annoys me, it's pulled off very well and very underplayed. I just saw it tonight and it's one of the best movies I've seen in... a long time?

    Castaway is an obvious choice.

    I was going to say Castaway, too. I recall recently reading of a movie which is either to come out soon or has just come out somewhere with the theme you speak of (& the article said it was good). When I remember what it is I will return!

    Cabin Fever aswell.

    Lost in Translation
    Samurai X
    The Double Life of Veronique
    Three Colors: Blue
    Amelie
    Before Sunset

    The following are some psychological horror movies which aren't centered around loneliness, but do create a bleak, dark, or unsettling atmosphere which makes one feel isolation and despair. :D

    Eraserhead
    Nosferatu
    The Shining
    Jacob's Ladder
    Suspiria
    Cube

    (Music is much easier than movies...)

    *Facepalm*

    I totally meant The Shining when I said cabin fever.

    haha.


    The Secret Window, is about a crazy isolated writer.

    Nobody does hopelessness and melancholy like the Finns. I like The Man Without A Past by Aki Kaurismaki.

    ^Oh, I've seen that movie before and I love it, but it's not quite what I'm looking for here. (Too happy.)

    Or what about Apollo 13? Those poor astronauts lonely and isolated inside that space capsule, 238,857 miles from their home planet.
