  • Goodbye, Dragon Inn

    Goodbye, Dragon Inn

    cinema- to watch something in a darkened room, together but apart from the other patrons

    food- to eat and to nourish and to contemplate, as you sit alone in front of a mirror

    star- to burn brightly and then to fade

    history- to be forgotten but to linger on in the periphery, to cause ache and nostalgia

    light- to shine brightly on empty spaces but not empty faces

    projector- to show possibilities and capture ghosts drifting across the screen

    stranger- to stand in proximity and to almost touch but not quite

    rain- to walk alone as you are lost in your thoughts

    loneliness- to be

    okay but audrey hepburn even deigning to look at humphrey bogart and him being like “i am a cold mystery man of business and logic, i can totally play with this woman’s heart and catch no feelings whatsoever”... absolutely, positively unrealistic, i tell you.

    i was 18 years old. the uber car was small but it was warm and i was in that fuzzy, clouded sort of headspace where you want to go to sleep but can't. he was nice. he was maybe in his thirties or late twenties and he had a cool tattoo and we got to talking. he had been to a lot of concerts. i was telling him about music i liked. he pulled up towards my dorm, turned around,…

    i. why are you breathing so hard?

    a) i danced for the producers until sweat ran down my back and stained my armpits. i am too old to be doing this but i don't know who i am when the lights are off.
    b) there's a cigarette in my mouth like it's an accessory
    c) i'm hurtling towards some kind of destiny because i want to outrun another
    d) the hospital bed…

    look hopefully by now, y'all know me and know that when i don't enjoy a movie, that doesn't mean that i don't see the merit of it or that i want to attack its fans. art is subjective and art like this has been a staple for as long as it has because it's so open to interpretation.

    okay- so i'm sorry but i thought this was just morally nasty and nihilistic to the point that i couldn't get any…

    there's a scene towards the end, where peter falk takes gena rowlands hand and puts it under the cold faucet water. it's bleeding and hurt and a little inflamed. he's not particularly gentle with her, ignoring as she winces in pain. he grabs a bandaid and slaps it on. he cannot tell her that he loves her.

    he's not particularly concerned with her feelings or well-being. that she just had a break-down mere moments before. he's hoping that if he…
