I was conceiving of this like the moment on the elevator in (500) Days of Summer where he hears her listening to The Smiths and assumes they are soulmates.

So what films would make me turn my head if I heard a woman touting them?

1. Lars and the Real Girl
2. The Hunchback of Notre Dame
3. Before Sunrise
4. CINECAST!ing Amal
5. 5 Centimeters Per Second

To more the original non-romantic implication I’d add:
1. Fish Tank
2. High Strung
3. Toys
4. Ruby Sparks

jdc: I use “In the words of the immortal Socrates who said, ‘I drank what?’” a lot.

I always used “It’s a moral imperative” if it would fit
"Beer. Now there's a temporary solution."  Homer S.

You got me to watch this the first time I dabbled with this board and was freaking out about The Florida Project. If you like Sean Baker, watch some Andrea Arnold. You couldn't have been more right!

I should add Igby Goes Down which I’ve probably tried to make a few people watch thinking they would relate
