Wondering which films to watch? Spotlight presents thematically grouped, must see films, hand-picked by Fandor's curators.


Laugh out loud, chuckle, smirk, giggle, we don't care as long as you're smiling. It's summer and we’re feeling good. Whether you are howling to see Buster Keaton's stunts or the end of the world antics of villagers in an isolated Russian community, this week's spotlight aims to amuse. Comedy is a universal language, hence the roots of film history in silent comedy. Flash forward 100+ years and the genre has split into a myriad of sub-genres: slapstick comedy, screwball comedy, black comedy, anarchic comedy, rom-coms (to begin). The takeaway? We can't live without these films helping us to find the humor in it all.
