Five Movies That Will Turn 20 in November 2021 – Make the Case
While I don’t care about my birthday, I can accept anniversaries of movies. This is a great way to track the evolution of the film, as it changes with the tastes of the rest of the world. It is also useful to establish context for the time period by using a 15- or 20-year marker.
This month’s Make The Case is a selection of 5 movies released in November 2001. All of them are now at the 20-year mark. In 2001, I went to the movies more than any other time in my entire life.
If you are a teenager and live in a rural area with little to no activity, you move on to the next town.
They don’t have much going on, but they do have a movie theatre.
20 years is an inordinately long time to make a movie, but it also provides a good amount of history and culture. While I will be reviewing the movies selected for this edition, I will also try to remember what was happening in November 2001.
We won’t learn everything, but I don’t know if we will. It could be that things get older and this can either make it a wonder or difficult to accept or both.
Who doesn’t love a good birthday?
This is not your fault.
Another thing: While I try not to think back too fondly, it is hard to disagree with the view that a more interesting selection of films was being released twenty years ago.
Amelie is as charming and sweetly bizarre as ever. This is because it remained as timeless as possible and invested in its characters. It is built on a series touching, sometimes somber, surprises and characters such as Amelie who are perfectly written and performed to the material. The film also takes viewers on a spectacular visual tour of Paris.
The story is simple and centers on Audrey Tautou (a young woman who exudes charm, excitement, and curiosity that seem to change her world), who has a profound impact on the lives of all those around her. It is a story that focuses on quirky characters and a playful sense of humor. This influences the conversations, motivations, and stubborn refusal of the movie to do what it wants.
Amelie isn’t a complex film. But its kind-heartedness, beautiful execution of its story, and style make it easy to see why so many people love it.
