I’ve noticed three main things about films. One: how I imagine a film in my head is sometimes better than the actual film. Two: the music in a film sometimes tells a better story than the film itself. And three: what’s implied is almost always better than what’s said outright (at least in the art world). As a result, I’m offering you nine films you can make up in your own heads (popcorn and screenings not included). These are films that will take you as far as you want to go. They’re films you’ll love and films you’ll loathe. But they’ll never let you down because they’ll never actually get made.
