My Five Favorite Movies, They May Be Strange To Some
I have strange taste in movies, at least that is what my husband says. It was hard to decide which were my top five so I'm going to put some runners up at the end and I'm still afraid there might be a movie out there I'm completely forgetting about. So here are my top five as of 2020. Unless I think of some I've forgotten.
I think this is a movie a lot of people don't even know about, but it is about a famous photographer that photographed the strange. It celebrates weird stuff.
Turning her back on her wealthy, established family, Diane Arbus falls in love with Lionel Sweeney, an enigmatic mentor who introduces Arbus to the marginalized people who help her become one of the most revered photographers of the twentieth century.
I love sad movies with bitter sweet endings and Stay has that. I also love Ewan McGregor.
This movie focuses on the attempts of a psychiatrist to prevent one of his patients from committing suicide while trying to maintain his own grip on reality.
The Exorcism of Emily Rose
I'm not sure why I love this one. I'm not big on Christian religious stuff, but this movie is so well crafted and for reason actually left me feeling a little uncomfortable in my own home, like people were watching me through my windows kind of feel.
A lawyer takes on a negligent homicide case involving a priest who performed an exorcism on a young girl.
The Last Unicorn
I have loved this movie since I was 12 years old and still occasionally watch it. The last Unicorn also has that bitter sweet kind of ending and may be the movie that started my love for that kind of ending.
A brave unicorn (Mia Farrow) and a magician (Alan Arkin) fight an evil King (Sir Christopher Lee), who is obsessed with attempting to capture the world's unicorns.
I always thought this was a really well put together movie as well and I had a great time watching it in a theater opening night. The Ring started a whole new genre of Japanese horror in America and I love it!
A journalist must investigate a mysterious videotape which seems to cause the death of anyone one week to the day after they view it.
Some other movies I love that you should see if you have not seen it are any Nightmare on Elm St. movie, The Dark Crystal, Interstellar, Hellraiser, Solaris, Sunshine, Moulin Rouge, BaBaDook, Heredity, The Witch, The Matrix, Xanadu, The Cabin in the woods, any Ghibli movie. There are more but these are the first to pop in my head at this time.
