Restore Your Faith in Genre.


Yes, I agree the above chart is both boring and hard to make out. What it indicates is the amount of films made in each genre or category if you will. As the majority of you know, genre is something that defines and collectively presents cinema but it can also be a royal pain and the thorn in a movie's side. All too often pictures are weighed down by their genre restraints or their seeming inability to be anything more than a retread of a past example but fear not, genre isn't all that bad really and here are some movies that truly understand how to use it to it's fullest, most richest effect. 

 Go out and see these films if you haven't already, trust me. Oh and I've tried to pick some different films rather than just all of the obvious, mundane choices...
