    even a moment’s worth [of love] can last a lifetime

    1. Prologue.

    The snow has stopped falling. The ground was sprinkled with the snowflakes of purity, and the white footpath glistened despite the gray clouds hanging over its brilliance. The path followed the curve of the landscape, gently sloping up and down as it drew the sketch of the bridge and breathed life into the scene.

    A man stood on the bridge,…

    #Kiarostami Rewatch

    where are you
    i brought your notebook
    i went where the road took me
    and it handed me a flower
    to be remembered by.

    Let's talk about that flower, shall we?

    One of my favorite scenes is where the young boy and the old man walk the streets of Poshteh in the darkness. The film's greatest asset is undoubtedly repetition, which manifests in the central conflict between the child and the adult world. The adults don't pay attention…

    a shot rings out in the house of lovelessness
    hollow
    like the souls wandering its corridors
    its corridors that are
    loveless and cold
    they see
    the corridors see the hollow rot
    caressing the bodies saying there is only one
    god
    it rots in me (dead) and says im alive im alive i am (dead)
    a shot rings out in the house of love
    lessness
    a shot rings out
    like a game
    like a game that sees
    like a game…

    Often, it is when you do not look for love that it falls into your life. It plummets into your heart and colors it red with a brush called idealism. You idealize the other person, you say things like 'I'd never have come so far on my own', things like 'Yeah, you're right. Some people are always right.' You love and you feel loved in turn - and you don't realize that it is a one-way street back into…

    Last Night in Soho

    ★★½

    Writing about this film makes me sad. Not upset because, bless him, director Edgar Wright is the most well-meaning giallo fanboy out there. But his intentions got thrown out the window once it was obvious that he was trying just a slightly bit too hard (meaning that he tried way too hard). It makes me sad because this is clearly a work of passion on his part.

    The one core thing he gets wrong about giallo might sound like a…

    Eraserhead

    ★★★★★

    The most explicit and implicit movie about stasis. Explicit in an assaulting, even invasive sense; and implicit in its cognitive abstraction. It has been argued a thousand times that Eraserhead is intangible, elusive, defies interpretation. That is true and yet it is not. It is a movie that deliberately defies sense during the experience of watching but makes sense when we evaluate it as a whole after the experience.

    David Lynch understands the bond between our sensory perception and our…
