Movies of My Life: Weird, Original, Avant-Garde Films & Interesting Human Relationshipsby nessfree | created - 13 Feb 2017 | updated - 8 months ago | Public
My favorite movies ever, some strange, some weird, some about human relationships, some experimental, some funny, some beautiful. Each of them means something for me and are somehow related to different times of my life. These are the movies which i loved even if it's not easy to satisfy my expectations for a good film. Maybe this list could also help you to find something interesting. Order of this list is almost random, as it's a pain to change IMDB lists, urgh.
