Oh, I don’t know. Tough one, not exactly my genre, but as a mental exercise - Moonrise Kingdom (2012).

I can feel NO wrong when I pop in Galaxy Quest. Or, if you're a fan of the movie but don't really want to bother with it, track down a copy of Never Surrender: A Galaxy Quest Documentary. That totally warmed my heart and left me smiling way too long after.

That’s that, then.

I do think ‘feel good’ is relative - nothing makes me feel better than The Conformist, but most people can’t relate.

Dave (1993)

Up (2009) - safe choice.

Spirited Away (2001) - controversial, I guess.

Blue Velvet (1986) - in the end, it’s uplifting.

Big (1988)

They are pretty obvious, so you’ll have seen them. Just interesting to see how many I can come up with.

@mark f kinda gets it. He's the closest, I think. Tampopo is a masterpiece, yes. Kinda what I'm after, too.

Watched Isle of Dogs, not really what I was looking for, but it was a fine film nevertheless.

I'm going to rep everybody in this thread just for participation and trying.
