my most vital film recs

or, not the films i recommend the most, but the ones i want more people to seek out. i think these are all extremely special and worth seeing. some are slow and meaningful, others are offbeat and provide a more unique viewing experience. these are often on my mind when i really think about why i love film, and they might all have nothing in common except for my love and adoration
