Amy: A Life in Movies
2001 – Y Tu Mamá También
Launched the international career of Alfonso Cuaron. I think this one is a very poignant film to watch when you’ve just graduated from high school and are planning to head your own way, leaving some of your friends behind.
2002 – Lilo & Stitch
My cousin had left home, and was living in Hawaii by the time I caught this at the theater, so the line of “Ohana means family” was really powerful to me… because I’m a sucker like that. A lot of people say that Disney died in the late 90s, but Lilo & Stitch is a really good film.
2003 – The Triplets of Belleville
To not lose that animation touch~
I really was lucky to be living abroad when I got to catch this at the theaters, and it is even more fun with the company of a group full of animation geeks who would discuss all the animation techniques involved in the film!
I really really loved Finding Nemo that year, but I voted for Belleville ;D
2004 – 3-Iron
Whenever someone tells you stalking is wrong and it’s weird, just think about this movie. They make this bizarre relationship into something that is… quite romantic.
I know many Germans don’t like to talk about Nazi stuff, but I love Nazi-themed German movies.
