much like amélie, high fidelity is a Movie You Really Should've Seen By Now If You Want To Consider Yourself A Certain Type Of Grown Person. namely, a hip one. but i think it's also an important film for understanding our generation.
this is the movie that made nearly everyone i've ever dated want to own a record store. it's where most people discovered beta band and belle & sebastian. it's the only movie to ever star the swedish woman with the bangs trauma who plays laura. it beautifully captures the differing philosophies behind the making of mix tapes. and it's a chicago movie.
PLUS, people, this is the movie where jack black comes from. RESPECT.
watch it. it will forever alter your view of "let's get it on."
