we all like to showoff our favorite artworks be it music or movies or shows as means to define ourselves with new friends. Mental health features seem to be my thing.

Hereditary(horror/family drama)
Hesher(grief drama/dark comedy)
Fight Club(drama/dark comedy)
Joker(2019/dark drama)

Why do a lot of my favorite movies all involve characters who are obligated to attend Group Counseling sessions, unwillingly, and who consider those groups to be for losers?

because my parents met at an Alcoholics Anonymous Ball/Dance.

I just realized this recurring theme and it got me thinking, what other movies are there out there like that which I might like? I checked out Silver Linings Playbook by recommendation, but it's not an all-time favorite of mine or anything.

My life is just real fucked up, I'll be honest, but it only just occurred to me that whoever decides to sit down with me and show interest in all of my favorite films is going to notice this recurring theme and I didn't even intentionally make this a common feature in all my favorites.

Art imitates reality, I guess. What are some of Your defining favorite films, /mtv/? Let's try and vaguely sum each other's lives or personalities up just based on our favorite defining films and each recommend 1 film like that for each other.
Nothing too specific, just list your similar favorites off and pick the ones you take pride in associating yourself with due to how much those works of art help to express your own self to strangers. Im bored and wanna empathize with people.

I swear I'm not trying to be mean, but I hope you have a therapist and talk to them about this.

Blaming your parents for your short comings doesn't define who you are. Just because they met at AA, doesn't mean anything, you're just looking for an excuse. Get it together and rise above it.

Joker is the only one of your movies that I have seen, so I can't really comment on that. Movies I really like tend to be things that are about people in a mundane job as a setting, but sorta show like the "everyday" occurences and character interactions as events and complications. It's a quote from Super so it's not deep, but I always found these kind of things as what Sparky says "happens between the panels".

Stuff like Clerks, Adventureland and Waiting... would be things I like that fit this description, Eighth Grade too if you count school as that same kinda mundane job setting. Before Sunrise is almost an entire movie of this kind of interaction, two people learning about each other. My last girlfriend hated these movies because "nothing ever happens", but that's sorta what I find so great about them. These movies generally have pretty open endings as well, because they don't really have big complications to solve, sorta like life until you die.

Listen, I wasn't trying to bust balls, but back when I was obsessed with that kind of media, it was because I was in a bad head space. But in the spirit of the movies you named, you should watch I'm Thinking Of Ending Things on Netflix, it's brand new and trippy and sounds up your alley.

Well fuck. My favorite movie is Conan the Barbarian (the one with Arnie, not that steaming pile with Aquaman). What does that say about me?

Others in my faves list include Being John Malkovich, How To Get Ahead In Advertising, Schizopolis, Pi, Cherry 2000, Fire and Ice, Forbidden Zone, Dune (the disavowed Lynch version), Suburbia, Metropolis, The Life Aquatic.

If There's a theme in there it's that I tend to go for movies that make you think. But that doesn't explain why Conan is in the #1 spot. What is best in life?

fair enough lol

I already had that on my Watch list just because Toni Collette starred in Hereditary and that new one got some buzz when it released on Netflix.

Im trying to step outside myself and into other people's headspace.

Like, when you get a chance to show your taste to a stranger, what movies do you list off to define yourself to them?

> Conan
this guy fucks.

You like Cerebral films, ever watched The Illusionist, or The Prestige?

Both are about magicians who seem to know some real magic rather than tricks, and cannot seem to be found out by anybody who claims to know the wiser. Solid thinker movies, those two.

No. It's true. I really like them above other movies. (Yes, I understand it could have been a rethorical question)

Thank you for the kind words Kandyse... It shows your a kind spirit.

I could name so many but these are what first come to mind, the only ones missing are Lupin III Secret of Mamo, Akira, Videodrome, Waking Life, Fantastic Planet, Django (the old spaghetti western, not tarantino)

Oh. And Wizards, love Bakshi

Survival/life or death themes, you probably like using the midbrain functions, typically action. What's an overlooked similarity you found parallels your own life in all of those?

do you like old horror movies?

Anyways, thanks for the interest.

they want to kiss you and date you and love you and tell you bedtime stories and tuck you into bed at night and kiss you on the forehead and crawl under your bed and into your closet and give you nightmares
