Recent Movies that Restore My Faith in Originality in Film

  1. Swiss Army Man
    I've truly never seen anything like it. Beautiful film and impossible to describe without giving anything away, but go see it. More thoughts here: Non-Spoilery Reasons to See Swiss Army Man
  2. Don't Think Twice
    I have a complicated relationship with people who do improv so I wasn't sure if I would love or hate this, but it was great. A really honest story. Gillian Jacobs is wonderful.
  3. Sing Street
    Man, was I in a dark place when I saw this and it really put me in a different mindset. Sometimes a movie you expect nothing from and know little about will do that. Plus, crazy nostalgic for anyone who was a pining teen in the 80s, certain that starting a band would solve all their problems.
