Movies I've rewatched at least four times (and would still gladly rewatch anytime)

These are narratives that I don't mind living inside. I already know what's going to happen, but I still can't wait to see it all unfold. These aren't necessarily the "best" films, but, in some way, they feel like they capture a slice of reality with an exceptional combination of comfort, hope, and pure energy. For better or worse, they are burned into my consciousness just the way they are.
