To watch when you need a movie day, or to doze off to before bed. Short films, videos, movies… moving pictures.
Almost Famous- a cult classic. I have yet to meet a person who has watched this movie and doesn’t want to be/be with Penny Lane, William Miller or Russell.
Blue Crush- Kate Bosworth, surfing, cheesy but gritty romance- what more could you ask for?
Interview between Ella Yerlich O’Connor and Durga Chew Bose- this is more of a conversation recorded than it is an interview, which is why I love it so much. Ella is otherwise, and more widely, known as Lorde. Durga’s book Too Much and Not the Mood became an instant favorite of mine earlier this year. Two of my favorite writers. I watch/listen to this whenever I need to burst my own bubble.
Illegal Civ- our very own Alexis Bennett posted something on her instagram story probably a year or so ago of Illegal Civ x The Fader Summer of ‘17 short film and I have been thinking about it since. I’ve spent the last few days watching and rewatching Mikey Alfred’s videos, and all the cool kids in them. He coproduced mid90s as well (!!!!!). And the music in these videos is fucking PRISTINE.
Davonte Jolly makes skateboarding videos as well. Here is one of my favorites. The end<3
Lady Bird- If you have not already watched this… I don’t know what to tell you. You just have to to be my friend. (this gif is from one of my favorite scenes<3)
The Royal Tenenbaums
Fast Times at Ridgemont High- Kir’s favorite. She went to see it with her best friend before they left for college.
Mid90’s- soon to be, if not already, a classic. We all agreed on this. One of my favorite movies ever.
My Neighbor Totoro- Makenna’s fav. Gonna go watch this one now. Gn
Let us know what your favorites are. With love J<3
