List: Top 3 Abstract Movie Worlds

This week on Episode 264 of the InSession Film Podcast, inspired by A Wrinkle in Time, we discussed our top 3 abstract movie worlds. If you’re not sure what that means exactly, well, you’re not alone. Abstract could mean anything depending on how criteria was defined, and you’ll see in our lists how we varied within that criteria. It was a challenge narrowing that down, but there have been some great abstract films that allowed for some refreshing conversation. On that note, what movie worlds would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:

**Please keep in mind that we each had different criteria for our selections**


1) Star Wars
2) Godzilla (1954)
3) Inside Out


1) The Fountain
2) Under the Skin
3) Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind


1) The Fall
2) Where the Wild Things Are
3) Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
