Within the photograph that leads this diary, you discover one in all my favourite cult movies, Hal Ashby’s Harold & Maude. That includes a improbable soundtrack by Cat Stevens, the movie has a really darkish sensibility that embraces the zeal and the fleeting nature of life on the similar time. It discusses uniqueness, and the way in conflict, a whole lot of that uniqueness is misplaced, changed as an alternative by fields of gravestones. I’m at all times reminded of this scene:
The movie isn’t alone in cult classics that I take pleasure in and inform others they actually ought to take the time to look at. Have you ever seen 1985’s Clue?
Oh sure. And so many extra. Some cult classics are actually traditions in communities. Rocky Horror Image Present? It was an unparalleled secure house for the LGBTQ group to have a good time the spectrum of gender identities. A Christmas Story rose from a field workplace “eh” to a house custom for generations who know precisely who Ralphie is (and that he’s positively gonna shoot his eye out).
Take a minute. Breathe in. For only one second, suppose how enjoyable the world can really be and luxuriate in it in a comfortable, dim house in your home. Watch a movie that you just miss. Inform us all concerning the cult basic movie you end up rewatching. Even whether it is Howard the Duck (which, P.S., I noticed within the theater) or Johnny Nmemonic (one other I caught within the theater). I promise, Join! Unite! Act! is an (nearly) fully judgment-free zone concerning movie.
Films at dwelling are low-cost, and community-building prices solely time and connection.
