Marie Antoinette
For some reason I can watch Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette over and over again. For me it's both a good movie to zone out to, or to have on while I do something else. A lot of people think this movie is slow or boring, but I think it is so visually beautiful it is inspiring. It also has a wonderful soundtrack. Maybe it's the dresses, maybe it's all the sweets, or maybe it's a pudgy Jason Schwartzman? There's not much plot, but whatever it is, I love it.

Lately I have been in a funk. And by "funk" I mean mildly depressed/anxiety-ridden state. We all get in funks, yes? When I'm feeling blue I cannot stand to watch a movie that challenges my mind too much or is too inspirational. Then again, I can't watch absolute mindless drivel, because then the anxiety starts to creep up on me and the movie does not serve its purpose: to give my mind a bit of a break or cheer me up. So just in case you feel a funk coming on, I thought I'd share some of my favorite movies to watch that, in my opinion, are the perfect mix of mindless and interesting (if that is possible). Here they are, in no particular order, 7 movies to watch when you're in a funk! - By Alison Faulkner
