Gentle Cinema 2: Crowdsourced Edition

Hi all,

So my list of Gentle Cinema went off something fierce. I had something very specific in mind, but it has provoked many suggestions, some frequently repeated, that are outside what I had in mind but may appeal to you. Some of these I haven't seen, so want to audit before I put on the list. And some of these I don't personally see as gentle at all! But as long as they seem to have been suggested sincerely, I'll add them, and if there's ones that I catch up with that aren't on the main list that I feel belong there, I'll move them over.
