I read recently that the reason some of us prefer to watch movies we’ve seen before d(uring a global crisis like this one) is because not worrying about the ending or what might happen helps with anxiety. I feel super anxious all the time lately, and was wondering…
What are your favorite Comfort Movies?
I keep avoiding violent or gory movies, and craving ones that are on the sweeter/simpler side in terms of predictability and pattern. I am normally a “movie snob”, and psychoanalyze every little thing, but right now I want Romantic Comedies and anything that ends on a vaguely happy note. Essentially, if Cameron Crowe wrote it… I’m probably watching it about now.
Lately I’ve been finding comfort in Netflix rather than movies, and my current (perhaps all-time) favorite? Schitt’s Creek. It’s been so nice to unplug from the stresses of real life and connect with characters I truly love. And I can totally relate to wanting to watch things that aren’t stressful or anxiety inducing. I have a list of new movies and shows to watch, but I haven’t felt like I have the mental and emotional capacity to take on many new things right now, even something as simple as a new movie.
