    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Why you pursue something is as important as what you pursue.

    For those curious, yes, despite having watched the movie not long ago to properly prepare for this paper, I watched it again so this can count as a proper research. Turns out, when you're dealing with an all-time favorite movie, you can seemingly watch it every day and not get tired of it. This in a way, at least at the moment, feels like a culmination of the two…

    Always this suspiciousness, haste, and no time to stop and think.

    Oh, this is like a good good movie. I want to instinctively try going down the route of trying to analyze why I loved this movie, but for the time being, I'm thinking of that one clip from The Simpsons where Homer is watching Twin Peaks, he laughs, and then he says "I have absolutely no idea what's going on." I'm there more than I might want to admit,…

    An Autumn Afternoon

    ★★★½

    That's fate for you.

    A balance between tradition and allowing progress to take hold. I do recognize how strange it may be that the first Ozu I've seen was also his final movie, but I'll take it in stride because I did at least for certain like it, even if I now recognize that I might like it more if I go back to it after seeing more of his films. I really enjoy how An Autumn Afternoon looks, with…

    If we're kind and polite, the world will be right.

    Alright, yeah, perfect movie, wow. At a certain point, especially near the end, had to ask myself what I thought the possible flaws were of this movie, and I landed on "Nothing." You guys really weren't kidding about it. Very, very rare to come across anything with this much kindness and generosity. That's in reference to a movie, a book, an event, a person, really anything. I know that in…

    Making a Literal Difference Metaphorically

    I am going to try to be as not mean about this as I can. I absolutely adored Bo Burnham when I discovered him. I cannot remember when I discovered his Netflix specials or how, but I loved them. (what. was to me my favorite stand-up special without a shadow of doubt.) I cannot pinpoint an exact time when I started thinking about it, maybe around the same time when I was having to wonder…
