what are some movies or books that have deeply moved you?

snippets of what people shared on campfire.


Movie: Priscilla, Queen of the desert, I saw it the first time when I was a kid.

It opened my eyes on a lot of topics and help me develop an aesthetic for menswear (in my personal work) that is more inclusive.

Book: All about love, Bell Hooks.

Should be mandatory for every human beings so it can give us the chance to deconstruct our views on love and create our own.


Uuhhh, that might take a while to answer. But one movie comes to mind instantly ‘Pay it forward’. I don’t even know how to describe my feelings for it. It is such a wonderful story and so sad at the end, but still hopeful. Idk


Hellooo! The book is: "To Room Nineteen" by Doris Lessing. It was like someone took the fears inside my head and put them on paper so I've read it multiple times to the same effect. (it also offers me certainty whenever I feel doubts about remaining childfree 😅)The movie I'll go with is: Microhabitat (2017). It was just amazing to me and I related to a lot of what she said. It left me feeling some kind of way.


Mektoub, My love: Canto Uno (2017)

Never seen youth and summer captured in such a dope way. So real, raw, no BS. The dialogs made me believe these actors weren't actors but people, real humans, living real lives. A masterpiece.


Loveless / Нелюбовь (2017)

Modern Russia, grey landscapes and folks trapped at the mercy of unstoppable forces. Never seen such a film which would make you think twice about having children or praising Poutine’s regime.


Son of Saul / Saul fia (2015)

This film didn’t just portray the Holocaust, it manages to make the viewer feel that lack of meaning, the grief and the numb pain, it makes us smell the dust and blood, it makes us run with thousands of others, fearing for our own life. Schindler’s List is a feel good movie compared to this masterpiece.


I’m assuming at least some of you have read Sex at Dawn by Chris Ryan.
