  • Crime dramas. Stuff like Scarface and Lock Stock or any of Tarantino's stuff. I like to live vicariously through the characters because it's not socially acceptable for me to commit violent crimes and rob banks and stuff all the time 😂

  • Horror, for sure. I'm not totally sure why? I think it's a really interesting kind of cinema. Horror is the only, like, genre film which can be experimental & audiences expect to be a little bit experimental. Horror, at its best, is basically arthouse cinema that average filmgoers watch. That's so fascinating to me!

    It also has the finest subject: abjection. And it has to make you feel, in yr gut, the abjection. Which, therefore, makes all horror simaultaneously a work of phenomenology. So all horror is social commentary, necessarily, right? I think that's really interesting.

    It also has the property of a mystery or thriller film, where it has to keep certain things secret from the viewer - but in horror there is no 'reveal' or 'twist' which exposes the hidden stuff, in the best horror the hidden stuff stays hidden, and is never revealed. The best parts of a horror film are whatever is not in play. And those unknown elements stay in the back of your head after the films over, and haunt you :)

    I also feel like there's a degree of Brechtian distancing in them, you know, like how often do you hear people say things like "what are you doing?" to horror film characters :P thats critical reflection!

  • Comedy because people in general have to deal with a lot of bs in life and I think it's nice to take a break and laugh about whatever. It's good for people in my opinion

  • Not exactly a genre, but I enjoy foreign movies the most. Seems like Hollywood has nothing original left to offer.
