You left out the surprise just before that, where the nice lady who worked at the lunch counter was an assassin.
I don’t generally look for movies that provoke a lot of the listed emotions, because I perceive them as negative. For sadness, just because it really struck home with me at the time and there has been nothing to replace it since, a British film from 1969 called Run Wild, Run Free. About a kid and his parents and a sort of surrogate parent.
I think my favorite surprise film is The Other, from the 70’s, written by Tom Tryon, a B-list actor. It had the incomparable Uta Hagen in it, but that’s not the source of the surprise. No spoilers in case you haven’t seen it.
I’ve laughed at lots of films over the years, but my favorite funny sequence from a film, I think, is the whole ending of Foul Play (Goldie Hawn, Chevy Chase) starting from where the chase scene starts, all the way to the end. I think because the San Francisco locations are familiar, and the Gilbert and Sullivan is very familiar, and the old Japanese couple in the limo, it’s just about perfect.
What I most hope to get from a movie is something like being a witness to a truly great person’s life and actions in difficult circumstances. I guess the relevant emotions are respect and admiration. I get that from A Man For All Seasons. Brilliantly written by Robert Bolt, brilliantly acted by Paul Scofield (and everyone else in the stellar cast), it is the story of a man standing up for his principles (even though, in real life, I loathe his principles).
You may draw what conclusions you want from the fact that all these movies are from the 60’s and 70’s.
