FYC: 
Le samouraï (1967) (even the epigraph suggests that the loneliness of a samurai can be only compared to that of a tiger)
Un homme qui dort (1974) (The Man Who Sleeps; the movie is so adamant on being lonely and isolated that the main protagonist is the only credited character apart from a female narrator)
Lunatics: A Love Story (1991) (a very underrated and undeservedly obscure movie)

Paok, This should be in the top 5. It will get voted as one of the top 3.

I Am Legend (2007)

Cheers.

Also maybe Barbie as Rapunzel.  Almost the whole point of the movie was Rapunzel being dominated and kept hidden from life by the witch.

I vaguely remember this being done before. Of course, it could probably be a multi-part list. 

Well, I looked for it and I couldn't find this question specifically. What I did find, though, might give you some really good ideas for films:

https://www.imdb.com/poll/pmX6vTqRY-E/ (This is what I was remembering.)

https://www.imdb.com/poll/6gX7F961pd0/ (This one has some great ideas, too.)

Off the top of my head, one that I don't think was on either of those lists:

Nightcrawler
