Strangers Suggest: Max Bain

Introducing ‘Strangers Suggest’ – a new SOON series documenting the style and taste of strangers in relation to certain moods. To begin the feature, we interviewed our first SOON Stranger on films. Max Bain is an Engineering student currently studying at the University of Oxford, and a friend of a resident writer at SOON.

Suggestions of Films to watch when you’re feeling:

HAPPY: Cherish these rare moments; don’t waste them with a film.
SAD: A super sad tragedy, your problems seem trivial in comparison- ‘Schindler’s List’.
ANGRY: A really silly comedy- ‘Shaun of the Dead’.
ENERGETIC: Dank Horror/ Thriller- any of the ‘Saw’ films.
NOSTALGIC: ‘Shrek’.
DRUNK: ‘XXX’.
TIRED: An old slow-moving black and white… think Hitchcock or – ’12 Angry Men’.
IN LOVE: I’ll let you know when I get there, but if I had to guess… ‘Interstellar’ seems pretty fitting.
INSPIRED: If you know, you know- ‘Howl’s Moving Castle’.
CALM: A film that makes you think- ‘Primer’.
