If anyone wants to lean into this whole seclusion vibe and embrace the silence here are a few recommendations. Movies with next to no dialogue but incredibly compelling all the same. (Basically, exactly the kind of movie I like best.)

Into Great Silence: It is an intimate portrayal of the everyday lives of Carthusian monks of the Grande Chartreuse, a monastery high in the French Alps.

Under The Skin: Loosely based on the 2000 novel of the same name by Michel Faber. It stars Scarlett Johansson as an otherworldly woman who preys on men in Scotland.

All is Lost: Robert Redford as a man lost at sea.

And one quick reading recommendation- Montaigne’s Essays, especially “On Solitude”
