Intuitive Cinema: Films to Feel, Not Think About

Or: Films that make emotional sense, but not necessarily logical sense

Films that you follow on an intuitive level, even if not on a story level. Aiming for stuff that is elliptical and about the emotional journey of the story, not the story itself.
