"I peed on the corpse. Can they do, like, I.D. from that?"

Everyone has their comfort films. In my case it's Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. My reasons for loving this film go beyond the film itself, I was in a bad place in my life years ago. I was incredibly depressed and didn't tell anyone about it. I was so upset and I felt so helpless that nothing could lift me up out of this emotional rut I was in.

But I turned on the IFC channel one day and saw this film had just started playing. It starred Robert Downey Jr, Val Kilmer, and Michelle Monaghan. It took me 10 minutes of watching this film and I just felt happy again for some reason, it's such a witty script filled and my God the sarcasm that RDJ and Kilmer fire back at one another just cracks me up. All of the characters are so well written and hilarious. But it's also a detective story, it's got a genuine mystery that really hooked me.

I love this movie to death, and I understand that not everyone will think it's a masterpiece like I do. But this film really helped me out in a time where nothing was going right for me. That's why film and art is so great there's always something that just connects with certain people and this film did that for me.
