Cinema is the ultimate pervert art. It doesn't give you what you desire - it tells you how to desire.

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things


    It’s tragic how few people possess their souls before they die. “Nothing is more rare in a man,” says Emerson, “than an act of his own.” And it’s quite true. Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions. Their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation. That’s an Oscar Wilde qoute. 

    And that was from the movie. 

    Yeah this is exactly the main feeling you get when you watch a Charlie Kaufman film. Fucking brilliant.

    How GREAT It was? Directing on fire, the performances...Wow, Saoirse Ronan...WOW!

    It was very-very-very lovely, a film with depth, growing, original characters, special directing, and filled with some jaw-dropping image-compositions. Costume drama is a genre which I have avoided and man shouldn’t have I!
