Most Important Rewatches of 2021

Films, revisited, that appeared new, transformed, transfigured -- or, How the films stayed the same but appeared different because I had changed.

Rewatched less this year than in years past for a number of reasons, but still a valuable thing and something I enjoy reflecting on at year's end.

Ranked by how significant I feel the reencounter was. Commentary in notes.
