While the genre and cast of a film are important, and the crew and the storyline are crucial to making it successful, the energy of a movie is also a key component. You want to sit in a theater or at home in your favorite chair and feel something when you watch a movie.
Sometimes, you want to feel joy and happiness, the kind that you can almost reach out and grab. Other times, you want to watch a movie to navigate feelings of pain and sadness. Of course, there are also times when you want to be absolutely terrified. And then, there are times when you want to watch a movie that just feels bonkers.
You know the type of film, the one that you watch and you almost feel trippy, like things are heavier and lighter at the same time. Like the energy coming from the film is tangible and suddenly you can do anything—even something crazy!
