Charlie McDowell, the writer-director, developed an innovative sci-fi picture that not only addresses the meaning of life (and the possibility of an afterlife), but also suicide. It gives an intriguing perspective on awareness and death that is well worth watching.

My Suicide (2009)

‘My Suicide,’ also known as ‘Archie’s Final Project,’ is an award-winning dark comedy-drama that sparked a social media campaign to raise awareness about teen suicide. Archie (Gabriel Sunday) is a socially awkward high school student who becomes a sensation when he reveals his intention to commit suicide on tape for his cinematography project.

Archie not only attracts the attention of the most popular and prettiest lady in school, but also of the perverted school psychiatrist, by doing so. David Lee Miller produced and directed ‘My Suicide.’ Gabriel Sunday, on the other hand, not only acts in the film but also contributes to its scripting, editing, additional camera work, and co-production. This film employs an interesting storytelling technique that viewers may like.

‘Kingdom of Us’ is a documentary about a family attempting to recover from loss and go forward in life. After Paul Shanks commits suicide, his wife Vikie and their seven children are left to fend for themselves while they cope with his death. While the financial difficulties are difficult for the family, the emotional loss and sadness that comes with the death of a father and husband make the entire process terrifying and depressing. The Lucy Cohen-directed documentary provides viewers with insight into the consequences of suicide.

Bird Box (2018)

‘Bird Box,’ a Netflix original picture, starring Sandra Bullock as a woman attempting to protect herself and her family from a terrifying hazard that might lead to their death at any time. The film is set at a time when mysterious creatures have landed on the world and killed the majority of the human population. These species, however, do not participate in the killing. Anyone who stares at them goes insane and kills himself.

In the thick of it all, Malorie Hayes must lead herself and two children to safety before they are attacked. The problem is that they must cross the dangerous terrain with their eyes closed. The picture offers an intriguing premise, but it basically functions in the same manner as many other zombie films we’ve seen over the years. As the film’s principal character, Bullock, as always, provides a terrific performance.

To the Bone (2017)

3 Idiots (2009)

While the two of them barely pass their examinations, their friend Rancho always leads the class in every subject. It is not unheard of for students to attempt suicide as a result of rising pressure. This film aggressively criticizes the Indian school system while maintaining its amazing sense of humour. Aamir Khan’s outstanding performance as the primary character Rancho steals the show.

All the Bright Places (2020)

Despite being classified as a romance, the story of a young high school pair is compelling and sensitive to the feelings of youngsters.

Their friendship develops into a profound attachment, demonstrating the power of love and attention and what it can do for someone going through a difficult period.

Furthermore, it emphasizes how the process of coping with sorrow and trauma evolves with time and with life events.

This list concludes with yet another documentary. ‘Evelyn,’ directed by British filmmaker Orlando von Einsiedel, is a series about his own family. Orlando’s brother Evelyn committed suicide thirteen years before this picture was filmed. The plot revolves around Orlando’s family’s attempts to cope with the catastrophe. The entire family goes on lengthy walks to locations Evelyn used to wander about while he was alive to remember him.
