Just A Bunch Of Movies That People Should See One Day
Alright so I went way overboard but when I set out to make a list of films people should check out I’m gonna take it a little to seriously. That being said here’s a shit ton of films that I think everyone should check out if they can. I’m definitely missing a lot but every single one of these is in order by year of release. So here it goes.
Barton Fink (1991). A renowned New York playwright is enticed to California to write for the movies and discovers the hellish truth of Hollywood.
This film took me totally by surprise. I mean, the DVD case made it look so simple! The reality of it is something in the vein of Twin Peaks, a tight, compelling character study told through the blurred lines of reality and fantasy. It’s beautifully made too, dense with symbolism and recurring images, and grounded by brilliant performances from the cast. It’s a great film, but then, a lot of the films at the 64th Oscars were great, so I’m not entirely surprised it didn’t make a clean sweep, even if it would have any other year. 8.5/10.
