So, of course, I clicked around some of their lists to find some videos I missed before or had forgotten and came across this gem:
The onscreen title is a bit of a misnomer, because it’s really one of the team’s top 10 personal favorites.
The various Cinefix lists already make me think of my favorite films and what makes them my favorites. This list goes deeper in trying to analyze what sorts of stories, what sorts of cinematic stories, really resonate with him.

This was released back in April, but I feel like I could use it even more now, as there’s no end to the quarantining in sight here in the U.S. (also, I’m beginning to try and watch some “muse-see” films in prep for my biennial Favorite Films exercise).
One of the things I love about the Cinefix videos is that they love rattling off any number of films in the run-up for the official Top 10 selections. This both gives you a bit of their train of thought and also some deep cuts to watch as well.
I do think that, with this particular list, the films get less “uplifting” and more “absorbing” as they go up the ranks. However, four months on from their original posting, many of you might be up for more of a cinema adventure… or at least distraction.
