Benjamin Chase "Typo180"
The list author says: "These are things that make my heart feel like it is expanding and collapsing at the same time."

"I have never before had to put a book down to stop myself from crying during the first chapter."
No One Belongs Here More Than You: Stories
No One Belongs Here More Than You: Stories
"I couldn't read two of these stories in a row because of how strongly they affected me. There is something deep and sexual and personal about this book. It reminds me that I'm thirsty for friendship and intimacy."
Magnolia (1999)

"So gut-wrenchingly human."

"An unconventional comic with a story that's hard to put down. It's real and intimate and bittersweet and beautiful."
Come On Feel the Illinoise
Come On Feel the Illinoise
"Beautifully composed. If record stores were organized like book stores, this would go in the literature section."
The Perks of Being a Wallflower
The Perks of Being a Wallflower
"This speaks to the child in me that hasn't finished growing up yet, not the part that will keep me feeling young, but the part that is still scared and confused and really should have been guided into adulthood by now."
Girlfriend in a Coma: A Novel
Girlfriend in a Coma: A Novel
"This book challenged me to think and live deeply. I look back to it when I need motivation to move beyond complacency or to be reminded of the importance of love and friendship."
Lost in Translation

"The longing for emotional connection just screams out of every subtle movement in this movie. This is quite possibly my favorite love story."
Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou The (2004) - 11 x 17  - Style A

"This and Big Fish were probably the first movies that I had to see multiple times before I could tell if I liked them or not. The Life Aquatic was my first Wes Anderson film, so it snuck up on me. I love the almost indifferent attitude it takes toward the surreal and the stiffness with which it approaches relationships. It's strange and beautiful and dry."
Big Fish

"I had to see this movie three times before I decided that I liked it, but after that I've loved it more each time I've seen it. I'm a sucker for a good father-son story."
Death of a Salesman
Death of a Salesman
"I had to read this play for a high school english class and it scared the hell out of me. When life feel stuck or petty or dull, I remember this play and start looking for plane tickets."
The Science of Sleep
The Science of Sleep
"I suppose, as a viewer, the movie is like getting high for the first time accidentally: You can strain to make everything make sense, fight it, and wait for it to be over, or you can just accept what you see and enjoy how it makes you feel. The movie is gorgeous though, so it's not hard to enjoy it. The home-made props and insights into the director's mind are precious and lovely."
Synecdoche New York
Synecdoche New York
"You have to approach this one with a similar attitude to Science of Sleep, but Synecdoche will scramble you up a bit more. I have to watch this one a few more times before I can even begin to talk about it, but it makes my heart ache and my brain hurt at the same time."
Till the Sun Turns Black
Till the Sun Turns Black
"Just let Ray LaMontagne's soft and world-weary voice carry you through the stories he weaves. It's deep, it's uplifting, it's haunting, it's black-and-white, the film is grainy."
Sigur Ros: Heima
Sigur Ros: Heima
"Even if you aren't a fan of Sigur Ros, you can appreciate the cinematography and the meaning of the band's tour through their homeland."
