I am looking for movies with only a few main characters and little to no secondary characters. The main characters talk alot about philosophy, or politics or love or something, anything interesting really. (more inside). This type of movie often takes place in a deserted locale for much of the film... a few people get lost on a camping trip, or stranded on an island, or they share a jail cell together..

The type of movie I'm looking for here is likely to be independent films, partially because hollywood movies tend towards lots of action, and partially because a movie with only 2 or 3 actors that takes place in a secluded place is cheap to make. One example that sort of fits the description would be "Clerks" (the movie that guest stars Jay and Silent Bob).
Another film that fits the general idea is "Waking Life", which is about a teenager who is in a dream, who keeps talking to people in his dream. They talk about anything from politics to religion, about love, and science..
I cant remember the name of it, but there was a movie that took place after a nuclear war, and the only characters were several scientists sitting in a cave waiting to die, discussing .. everything.
