No One Belongs Here More Than You: Stories
3.  No One Belongs Here More Than You: Stories by Miranda July

Come On Feel the Illinoise

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (322 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The Perks of Being a Wallflower
7.  The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
The list author says:
  "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."
$11.42   Used & New from: $0.01

Girlfriend in a Coma: A Novel

$10.04   Used & New from: $0.01
3.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (191 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Lost in Translation
9.  Lost in Translation DVD ~ Bill Murray
The list author says:
  "The longing for emotional connection just screams out of every subtle movement in this movie. This is quite possibly my favorite love story."
$8.00   Used & New from: $0.01
3.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2,068 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou The (2004) - 11 x 17  - Style A
10.  Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou The (2004) - 11 x 17 - Style A by Pop Culture Graphics
The list author says:
  "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."
$11.77   Used & New from: $9.98
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Big Fish
11.  Big Fish DVD ~ Ewan McGregor
The list author says:
  "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."
$9.72   Used & New from: $0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (806 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Death of a Salesman
12.  Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller
The list author says:
  "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."
Used & New from: $0.84
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (322 customer reviews)

The Science of Sleep
13.  The Science of Sleep DVD ~ Gael García Bernal
The list author says:
  "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."
$29.98   Used & New from: $13.25
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (107 customer reviews)

Synecdoche New York
14.  Synecdoche New York DVD ~ Philip Seymour Hoffman
The list author says:
  "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."
$6.59   Used & New from: $1.50
3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (218 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Till the Sun Turns Black
15.  Till the Sun Turns Black by Ray LaMontagne
The list author says:
  "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."
$7.00   Used & New from: $0.62
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (157 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Sigur Ros: Heima
16.  Sigur Ros: Heima DVD ~ Sigur Ros
The list author says:
  "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."
$13.59   Used & New from: $7.97
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (105 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions
