Video: I totally expected a supercut of touching in movies to be a bit on the creepy side, but this compilation actually handles it with a surprising amount of grace. It includes some meaningful touchy scenes like Finn holding a lightsaber for the first time in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, fingers grazing the ring in Lord of The Rings, Ava in Ex Machina feeling her own prototype mounted on a wall, Wall-E and EVE embracing and so on.
It’s an intimate perspective. Just from these super quick cuts, you don’t just feel the character’s need to touch but also their love, anger, curiosity, strength and fear. What’s even more impressive is how a glimpse of a touch can bring back so many memories and emotions from the film as a whole.
All the movies Now You See It spliced in the supercut are pretty damn great. Anytime you can somehow link Home Alone and 2001: A Space Odyssey together, you’ve done a good thing.
