If you're one of us, you're one of us. If you're not, it's ok. Also, I've omitted some because I haven't seen them yet, hence the (unofficial).
  1. Rushmore
    My college boyfriend and I discovered this. We went to Emerson College, a film school, but we were in small majors the school didn't seem to care about: journalism and marketing. Our bond was based on humor, and Rushmore became a glue for us, and, I think, a touchstone.
  2. The Royal Tenenbaums
    Just an f-ing classic. The dog dies. Once we get over that, you realize the movie has allowed you to feel both sad and complete about it. It's very real in surreality.
  3. The Life Aquatic
    Again, we loose a dog, but not to death, just an uncertain fate, which one can argue, is also a definition of death.
  4. The Darjeeling Limited
    I have mom stuff and I'm the youngest of two sisters, so this one smolders for me. And my mom can kind of look like Angelica Houston sometimes. They are of the same generation, and I wouldn't be surprised if my mom has a story about seeing her in New York in the 60s.
  5. The Grand Budapest Hotel
    The sheer beauty of this one compels, but also the story. And Adrian Brody, duh.
  6. Moonlight Kingdom
    I put this one last, but there is no least in this list. I just haven't purchased it yet, so it's the least remembered. Also, I was never allowed to go to camp, so I think I feel jealous of it a little bit.
