Around certain parts (these parts, far parts, near parts) I am known to have somewhat unconventional taste in films. This is because I am a ridiculous wimp and have an aversion to yelling, suspense, violence, or the suggestion thereof. Regular-person movies like “Super 8” find me twisting 360 degrees in my $16 theater seat and cause panic-dreams for weeks.
Naturally then, when choosing a movie, I am not drawn towards films with plots or a series of actions that further said plot. I prefer to watch regular people go through subtle emotional trials only to end up either largely unchanged or changed in a way that is impossible to describe with any specificity.
Many people are not familiar with my preferred genre because it has almost no appeal to anybody looking for a movie with clear entertainment value. Still, as a public service I have decided to list my favorite movies and explain why they are so awesome.
