Wonder (2017) – the seventh movie I like a lot

Yesterday I watched Wonder (2017).

It’s the seventh movie I like a lot, after Le Notti di Cabiria (1957), The Grey (2012), Gattaca (1997), Saving Mr. Banks (2013), The Butterfly Effect (2004), Inside Out (2015).

I looked at the list above, and noticed that most of the movies in the list are dramas, and only two are comedies. Only one movie is an action movie. I noticed I tend to avoid dramas, and watch action movies, and comedies more. That’s a bit of a strange choice, given the context.

“Wonder” is a delicate movie, gives you some perspectives on life. I don’t consider it very realistic, it gives an unrealistic optimism over life. And I think that’s a good thing, movies should do that. You don’t watch a movie for the brutal truth, but for the good it should bring in you.

Otherwise, it’s a powerful movie, with tough emotions. I haven’t cried, though. :)
