    Autumn Sonata


    i stand here, looking back on my blank computer screen. the film i had just seen had ended, and unlike a typical watch -- i sat there, and closed my eyes. tears had been pouring down my cheeks, and i quietly reflected. my life, in the past few months, felt like a dream of sorts. i can't believe some of what i am processing with my retina, the changing of landscapes and of people, relationships. i felt so dearly a…

    The "Sacred Deer" is purity.

    The ending is so haunting.

    I could go on, but I wont. Just see it for yourself.
