    I see a lot of INFJ movie lists, but they don't get updated much.
    There is always Amilie at the top, I'm still unsure she is INFJ.
    My INFJ movie list has some I haven't seen listed before.

    Mr Nobody
    The Congress
    Synecdoche New York
    Cloud Atlas
    Amie in the Cage
    Some of my favourites..
    And old ones like ....
    Tommy
    A Clockwork Orange
    ... There are shadows of these in the above movies Amie in the Cage and Mr Nobody.

    I wasn't sure about the new The Little Prince movie, I love the book and the musical, maybe I'm a purist?

    I tend to like a lot of psychological dramas/thrillers. My mum is an ISFJ, and she usually watches movies I pick, but she gets fed up with 'mind bending stuff', she likes stuff like Dickensian and Mr Selfridge, Downton Abbey etc, not my taste at all and I have banned soaps (haven't watched TV for five years)

    I'm always looking for new movie suggestions to watch, The Congress and Mr Nobody were great finds.
    Any more favourites you'd like to suggest?

    'The Intouchables' is one of my favorites. There are a bunch of others but my brain can't remember them all right now.

    This is going to sound wacky but I think Black Swan is probably an INFJ film, because I've seen it over 60 times.

    What would you consider to be an INFJ movie?

    Does it have to have a character in it who might be an INFJ?

    Or is it just a movie that all INFJs like?

    I expect Wall-E is an INFJ movie?

    The underlying message of Pan's Labyrinth is very INFJ in mood (as is Ophelia) and I strongly suspect that Donnie in Donnie Darko is a characteristic dark-INFJ. You may have seen these, though. What are your criteria? Movies made by INFJs (Miyazaki) or main characters with the type?

    Both, I think non INFJ people probably write INFJ characters, and INFJs write characters who are other types, ie Harry Potter is ISFP.
    Do you think Terrance Mallick is an INFJ director? I think that David Lynch is, and maybe David Fincher.

    I agree, and Radcliffe portrayed the type pretty accurately, in both intensity and awkwardness. Thewles' Remus Lupin made an endearing and complex INFJ in the movies, I thought. I've actually only seen his Dirty Harry and Badlands, so my comment doesn't really count. I've seen Lynch labeled one in the past and I think he might be one, too. Besides directors, I know for certain that Dark City, What Dreams May Come (a favorite), and Children of Men are all thematically on track

    Confession: Amilie didn't blow my mind. Besides a vague residue of synthetic quirky, I can barely remember it. Lately I mostly dig detective type movies. The Conversation is a classic. I settle for less though.

    Same here, I think I its a great film, but she doesn't really strike me as INFJ, if that is what she is, she is a dysfunctional one. I think the scene when she is 'gas lighting' to make that guy think he was mad, not my style at all. I would have been more confrontational probably. I don't like mind games. I think she is more INFP.
    On the other hand, I think that I related more to Nemo Nobody, because I play through different scenarios in my head about what might have been. The character played by Jim Carrey in Eternal Sunshine too. I like perfect romance. Adrien Brody is INFJ and I think he plays INFJ characters too, like in The Jacket. Splice too maybe?
    Two other films I like maybe ENFP ish, Mr Magorum's Wonder Emporium, and Penelope.
    I like 'Middle America' stuff, I'm British by the way, loved Garden State, Nebraska and Little Miss Sunshine.

    Not sure if anyone's mentioned it: The Hedgehog, French film.

    Watched it the other day. The plot, themes and key characters and their interaction make for a film right up an INFJ's alley.

    This could just be me, but I really enjoy a good Western. I love Clint Eastwood - his spaghetti westerns, and most of the films he directs.

    Terrence Mallick is one my favorite filmmakers, and the films of him
    I've seen
    resonate to me very deeply, especially The Tree of Life.
    I read from somewhere before he was typed as an INFP,
    but if we base from TToL alone, I'd argue for INFJ.

    If you're into animated movies, check 'When Marnie Was There' too. It goes deeper than the usual (somewhat surprised most viewers understood it as a girl x girl love when it's far more than that).
