I am sure that I have seen a movie with this theme, but I can't think of what it is. It involves someone who feels very strong convictions to do something, even though it would mean almost certain death. Friends and family try to dissuade them, but because of their convictions, they push on. Have you seen a movie with this type of storyline?

Well I can think of several where it does not mean automatic death to them.
They could face death,have a possibility to die,and some may die,but it may not be forseen.

Im thinking of
The Insider
Straw Dogs
Silkwood
Schindlers List
Dances With Wolves
Battleship Potempkin
Serpico
The Vanishing by George Sluizer
Glory
Thin Red Line
Last Temptation of Christ
Greatest Story Ever Told
On the Waterfront

Im forgeting good ones I know,but I think alot of these would fit your criteria.

The fairly dreary It's My Party comes to mind, in which Eric Roberts intends to put himself to sleep rather than get sick and die later.

Thought I'd go way back to the beginning of this forum to see if I could find threads that may contain older movie titles and landed here!

Gran Torino
