    What Time Is It There?

    ★★★★★

    Hsiao-kang speaks to his fathers ashes assuming that his ghost still clings to its edges with his celestial fingertips, giving him a much needed warning when they are about to enter a tunnel. His father is soon to be reincarnated as mice and fish and walls and maybe even time, his mother says. Hsiao-Kang pisses in bags and lackadaisically sells watches. Shiang-chyi enters the game at this point. They meet when she wants to buy a watch and he sells…

    "Well he's got all the money in the world, but there's one thing he can't buy... a dinosaur."
    — Dr. Richard Hammond


    all i want, as a "cinephile", are films with dinosaurs in them, films with jeff goldblum in them, films in which san diego is descended upon by something voracious like a t-rex or capitalism or amanda bynes. Only like 1% of films have dinosaurs in them, it happens every year and we as a global consciousness are letting…

    1/4 treason
    1/4 tonic
    umbrella.

    Lost in Translation

    ★★★★★

    I always manage to get incredibly anxious and wary over the prospect of rewatching the films that I love. To the point where my favorite films intimidate me, they scare me. Because if I saw such a clear reflection of myself in them at one point in my life what if when I look back into them I can't see my reflection anymore? What if I changed and didn't notice?
