Movies that make this list have to make an impact on me, and are often self-reflexive of a part of me.
  1. Lost in Translation
    This is the story of two people who share the same soul, and after what is basically a casual encounter, they see each other for who they are, and thus begins an incredibly difficult aspect of interpersonal relationships: true emotional companionship.
  2. Super 8
    This is a celebration of both summer movie history and youth. Yes, it is an homage, and a recreation of a lot of different movies, but it honors them all in a very respectful way while adding its own voice.
  3. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013)
    This is the story of someone finding the courage to become the person they were meant to be. It doesn't get much more personal than that. Also it was shot in one of the most beautiful places, and I want to go there very much.
