    See, I can get you what you want, I can. I can get you anything, you just have to talk to me, you have to trust me. You can trust me. ‘Cause I-I'm your priest, I'm your shrink. I am your main connection to the switchboard of the soul. I'm the magic man. The Santa Claus of the subconscious. You say it, you think it, you can have it.

    Since you’ve seen me logging this basically three times per month…

    Gotta light?

    Simply the greatest thing ever created. THE greatest. I finished all of it with my girlfriend a few days ago (my fourth watch, her first) but it has taken me a long time to get all of my thoughts together.

    The first scene of Part 1 with Cooper and the Fireman is definitely the most important as it applies to the events of Part 18. Initially the Fireman’s words to remember “Richard and Linda,” would appear he is…

    Everybody knows that you love me, baby
    Everybody knows that you really do
    Everybody knows that you’ve been faithful

    I am in awe of the Criterion restoration. It just occurred to me that my last viewing of this was four years ago! It’s going back in my Top 10 where it belongs! I feel like I’ve just experienced it as I did the first time all over again!

    Today brought back the memories of when I first discovered this when I was 17. Good times….

    Huge misfire. I remember reading a review yesterday that said “There is one element of this that is going to be quite misinterpreted.”

    Uh…..yeah because there’s an anti-abortion sentiment throughout this whole film. The constant shots of the baby in her womb are baffling enough, but to then have a scene of her speaking to the baby while it begs her not to have another abortion? Fuck was he thinking?

    Aside from this, the dialogue is one of the most…

    To come home and be treated to this masterpiece was a blessing. What stuck out to me was when they were watching a film, and someone gets shot in the film. Leo makes a point of saying: “That’s not how it happens in real life.” And “We saw someone get shot the other day and that’s not what it looks like.” There’s definitely some critique in that. Refn is saying that the reality in movies seems to be dying out.…

    Your friend sold us out to Maas. They don’t care about Hiroshi. They swapped him, for a chance to wipe out Hosaka’s entire team. 

    Sandii....

    They turned her in Vienna. I should’ve seen it coming.

    ^ This exchange right here gives me the chills every single time. Love the slow movement over the Tokyo skyline, cross faded with X and Fox trying to leave the Hyatt hotel. 

    This is most noticeable in the scene right after they show Sandii the…
