soft scifi

movies where the scifi element is small, inconsequential, or downplayed for the sake of characters, relationships, emotions, etc. going for a very specific and hard-to-define vibe, but "soft" and "quiet" are probably the best words i can use to describe that. no large-scale scifi, and maybe no aliens either. these aren't all strictly scifi, I know, but I'm keeping them anyway so please don't leave comments about that thanks.

films that have been recommended, but I haven't seen yet (will be added after I do and if I think they fit):

a scanner darkly
back to the future iii
being john malkovich
buster's mal heart
happy accidents
how i live now
je t'aime, je t'aime…
