    Been a while since I watched this film. 

    That scene where they mention how we must all share the burden is something I’ll take with me for life.

    In a year where grief is being shared at an unparalleled scale, I couldn’t think of a more poignant scene for a long time. 

    P.S. I have a massive crush on Awkwafina.

    This is definitely my fav Samurai film. A friend of mine suggested that I’ll love this film cause it’s a samurai film without a lot of action. 

    I've since used my friend’s pitch to sell it to friends but merely reducing it to that would be doing this masterpiece a great disservice.

    Something that’s been on a list that I only watched recently. 

    Maybe it’s time to get into more Wim Wenders films. I don't think I have a lot to say about this film that hasn't already been said. 

    It’s beautiful and it got me thinking about our obsession with taking isolated shots of films. Aren’t films supposed to be reviewed in motion? Anyway, this film is beautiful in isolation and in motion. 

    There are some moving performances. Creates and enigma around Paris, Texas. Again, I’m reviewing this after a week. The feelings that this film evoked haven't been lost on me.

    People adore many of Kaufman’s films ( me included ). I think we’ll ponder over many of the dialogues/shots in the movie when we look at them in isolation. We’ll even wonder if it’s okay to really have initial thoughts cause you might need some time to really let them settle in. ESOTSP did the same ( using my fav that he’s been credited with as an example ) but I think one of the reasons we still think about…
