These days, I am genuinely afraid of little old me, given my tireless routine of eating, breathing, sleeping, and listening to The Tortured Poets Department on repeat. It seems that I am not alone in my insanity given that Taylor Swift's latest record has remained the number one album on the Billboard 200 list for the last two weeks.

In the name of TTPD, I've created a finely crafted list of films that, in my opinion, radiate all things tortured poets, typewriters, and wavering sanity.
