I get bored with TV and shows,, but don't always have the energy to focus my eyes on reading, etc. Sports are a safe bet for some diversion, especially in the last 5 min of a game (haha). So I look to find new things to watch and thought it might be great to hear about any movies or shows you've watched recently that brought you an expanded feeling of existence- however that may look- joy- imbued sense of a greater world, etc, laughter whatever. I tend to like historical fiction. Artsy grabs me too.
I loved "Maniac" with Emma Stone and Jonas Hill. It is about two people who meet in a drug trial and their experience leading up to the trial and what unfolds at the trial. The A-B-C pills are meant to help you expand consciousness to overcome inner demons and hangups and trauma. It is fantastic. The scene where Jonas' character yells "put it in sports mode" as they make their get away in a late 80s/ early 90s or so volvo station wagon cracks me up!! Best dark comedy scene in fur shop since "Fargo" when the character is trying to stuff body parts in and through the woodchipper. Totally entertaining from front to back. and finishes well.
We watched the "End of the F***ing World".Two teenagers dissatisfied with life meet up, and their individual twisted mentalities help each other find happiness and get in touch deeper with accepting our human condition. It was a binge watch. The boy reminds me of Harold in " Harold and Maude" in affect.
