Palm Springs was fun. I'd defo give that an honorable mention along with Feels Good Man.

Palm Springs makes periods of depression seem fun so it's like

there are no exceptions to no take backs so I must accept that I forgot We Are, which I saw this year but files 2020

 :yabbse-grin: I can't put it in competition with Spree, personally, but if it weren't no-takebacks they'd share the spot.

It's too bad this isn't a ranking of Movies First-Watched in 2020, cuz gahdamn, I watched so much Abel Ferrara and Fulci last year. Actually, about to watch only my second Solondz rn, speaking of depressive-states-done-fun.

what's your Solondz order? some people start with the best but I think starting with the worst is better

like the list of Movies First-Watched in 2020 needs to happen now, you understand

But it would be quite daunting o_o
Seems like What Films Are We Watching + Quarantine Filmz somehow gets at that. But woo-ee. What a year for introverts.

I started with Storytelling. Was considering Happiness or Welcome to the Dollhouse for today.

.I'd go Palindromes next not because it's a worst but to follow an ideological pathway. definitely Welcome to the Dollhouse before Weiner Dog but honestly I'd go Life During Wartime to Happiness. Fear, Anxiety & Depression is 100% the worst thing he's done. I think Dark Horse is a good closer because it's ~so adorably Solondz~ just a conversation

oh the list isn't happening man I was all hype

can you imagine if Xixax had the fervor of the bluray board, that crew has got some energy to say the least
