What Movie Left You Thinking About It Days Later?

Our mission at SAW is to foster conversations about this thing we all love (or love to hate): film/TV. Many of our features are designed with you in mind. Your opinions, to be more to the point. You have ’em. We want to hear ’em.

Question of the Day (QOTD) is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a film/TV-related question that we put to you, the reader. The comments section below is like the feedback box at work; except, in this example, we actually read what you write and care about what you have to say.

Movies are great for entertainment, but they can be so much more than just a way to pass the time. Some movies stick with you for days, weeks, and even months after you’ve seen them.

What movie left you thinking about it long after the credits rolled?

I finally got around to seeing Denis Villeneuve’s Enemy two weeks ago, and it’s still with me. It’s open enough that you could read the film any way you want, but Villeneuve has made it clear the film has an intended meaning. I don’t think it’s that hard to figure out, but it’s all presented in a way that leaves you not only thinking about what you’ve just seen but also about the meaning of the movie and the themes and problems it presents. It’s one of those movies I know I will rewatch.

But what about you guys? What movie has stuck with you and left you thinking about it long after you watched it? Why did it stick with you?

Let us know in the comments below, and we’ll see you there.
