Death Cafe

Movies where death, dying, grief and aging are central elements - inspired by discussions at the monthly Death Cafe I attend/co-facilitate. I was a little picky about what to include, and tried to leave out horror (except Hereditary), films that were purely for shock value, or where someone dies but it doesn't add anything to the development of the characters.
I definitely have not watched the majority of these myself, so if you have any feedback about what should not be included or anything that's offensive or shocking, please let me know!
Movies that were recommended but are not in the Letterboxd database:
Consider the Conversation: A Documentary on a Taboo Subject (2011)
Documenting Death (2021)
Dying Wish (2008)
