    Reygadas’s Mirror…?

    Watched on a laptop with a cracked display, cellphone distraction, haven’t slept yet, many things on mind… I don’t know. Might watch it again. I don’t like the sauna stuff.

  • Damnation


    I like the rain. I like to watch the water run down the window. It always calms me down. I don’t think about anything, I just watch the rain.

    There are filmmakers that “wants to be” (or recognized as) “the next Tarkovsky” (haven’t seen them all yet). But, for me, the only one that comes close to him isn’t even there… Abbas Kiarostami.

    Not the surface (maybe)—the heart.
