Henry Floyd’sFavorite Movies

Us 2019 The film's namesake, the doppelgangers which take over humanity, are somehow the least surprising aspect of this film's myriad of wild plot twists and intricate messages.
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory 1971 Simply the most magical film ever made. Sometimes psychedelic, Sometimes fever-dreamy, but always charming and warm-hearted.
2001: A Space Odyssey 1968 The ultimate postmodern film. A sometimes beautiful, sometimes chilling, sometimes surreal meditation on all of humanity from caveman to space explorer. Guaranteed to cause existential crisis.
Brazil 1985 Ex-Monty-Python Terry Gilliam shows us a bizarre and darkly hilarious vision of the future.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail 1975 Monty Python’s origins in sketch comedy help them here—every single scene is a sketch that could stand on its own, without a single spare second of film wasted in between.
Yellow Submarine 1969 A psychedelic trip back in time with more than enough curious material to entertain both children and adults.
Birdman 2014 A single camera follows around a washed-up actor's chaotic daily life, while an eccentric jazz ensemble toodles away in the background. A curious, unexpectedly emotional, and deeply fun experience to watch.
Christmas on Mars 2008 A dark and surreal examination of mortality, as the residents of a rudimentary Mars base celebrate Christmas to fight the horrors of complete isolation, all while trying to ensure a mystical baby survives birth.
Amélie 2001 Ostensibly just a vaguely cartoonish French romance, but with a certain lasting je ne sais quois that makes it somehow endlessly rewatchable.
Beyond the Black Rainbow 2012 In the vein of Space Odyssey before it, this curious and artistic look at a future with bioengineered humans is both visually stunning and thought-provoking.
