Movie Challenge

I remember when I first saw this list – I thought "Is that all there is to a movie plot?"

Peggy Lee — Is That All There Is? 1969

Do you have anything to add?

All of the movies I know seem to fall under these 10 plots. Different characters, circumstances, perspectives but really – they all fall into these categories!

  1. Just once, I'd love to find a movie that doesn't fall in these 10 categories… or make one!

    The only one I can think of that doesn't but I really didn't enjoy it – was "Slacker". (Because it's plotless!) It seemed more of a product of art than anything else.

  2. "After Life" by Hirokazu Koreeda. Don't read any of the descriptions first. It's not obscene or gruesome, safe for all, but completely different. It changed the way I look at life.
