Isolation Nation: Movies For Quarantine

Hey everyone,

I know we’re not technically in a quarantine yet, but everyone’s calling it that so fuck it.

Here’s the movies that have come to mind for me as a way of curbing the overwhelming dread, uncertainty, and restlessness this time is bringing.


They each have something different that I think makes them applicable to this current time. Something familiar or comforting, uplifting.


Or maybe the movie is dark or violent, but it’s engrossing, distracting.


Some of these are very long and can provide hours and hours of entertainment. I also cheated a bit by finding Cowboy Bebop on this site.
