5 great films (giraffe inside)

By – couugh.com

We enjoy great films. So do you, for sure. So we’ve put together this list of great films for you to enjoy, whenever. As we’ve found, great films can break apart the mundanity of normal life. They introduce a sense of structure, purpose, direction to an observably chaotic, uncertain reality. Or, better yet – they can show you what chaos really is. You can watch a great film and think of nothing but the great film you’re watching for around two hours or more. Now, that’s a privilege. Here are some solid picks, oh boy:

LOLA RENNT 
Germany
1999
Directed by Tom Tykwer

 

If you want to have a heart attack, see “Run Lola Run”, a film in which the heroine must make 100,000 Deutsche Marks in order to save her boyfriend from passing on into the next world.

THE GREAT BEAUTY
Italy
2013
Directed by Paolo Sorrentino

 

Enjoy “The Great Beauty”, a film about an old man who does precisely as he wishes at all times. Keep an eye out for the giraffe.

INCENDIES
Québec
2010
Directed by Denis Villeneuve

 

“Incendies” by Dennis Villeneuve stars Javier Bardem and was shot mainly in Montreal. Just as french as a poutine, so you know it’s good.

THE HANDMAIDEN
South Korea
2016
Directed by Chan-wook Park

 

“The Handmaiden” is a popular choice among creepy bastards looking for a decent erotic psychological thriller.

A SINGLE MAN
United States
2009
Directed by Tom Ford

 

If you’d rather not read your films, Tom Ford’s “A Single Man” is a surefire, super deep winning pick.

It’s great to have these films out there to watch. We think you should watch one or all of these.
