For a lot of people, “summer movie” means action, superheroes, things blowing up, buildings falling down.
I like that stuff, too. I won’t lie about that.
There’s another kind though. And I’ll admit that these movies play to a far smaller audience than those big-budget thrill-fests. But for me, they’re the kind of movies that really capture something about summer. The heat, the sort of aimlessness some of us feel without the constraints of school, and the real rhythms of life.
