Lmao Eighth Grade is like the exact definition of a coming-of-age film, and a really, really fucking good one.Teproc wrote: ↑May 7th, 2021, 6:35 am Eighth Grade makes no sense on a Coming of Age poll? It seems you have a profound inability to comprehend that people's opposing viewpoints may be just as rational as yours, and quick to dismiss them as "crazy". It seems like a pretty obvious inclusion to me, recency aside, and the hypothetical mainstream cinephlie (so, average ICM user as opposed to average ICMF user in this instance) would probably see it as fully within the category I expect. Akira is also completely about adolescence and coming of age, I'm not even sure why that's a discussion... and while I didn't include Come and See, I can certainly see why people did, and don't feel the need to dismiss it out of hand as disqualifying, but that seems to be your favorite hobby, so have fun I guess, though you always take care to wrap it into some "but what if some rando comes into this" rationale, and you obviously have a much better understanding of random cinephiles than us "crazy" people, evidently.
I voted for Akira and Come and See.
