    top 250 directors challenge // (2/254)
    director #39 - abbas kiarostami

    alphabet challenge // (12/130)

    milk in a glass in the microwave. ten things happening at once, but still, nothing is happening. but everything is happening. the phone rings, the intercom buzzes. there's a wound to treat, someone's screaming. you can't get to anything before another thing sounds the alarm of needing…

    The Double Life of Véronique

    ★★★★★

    beds with baths full of linen, some parts covered, some parts exposed. scars exposed, the one on the finger. caressed in the blankets, stories revealed, bare like crescendo breasts. wanting to know everything. windchime waterdrops, alive, falling down the window panes. satin ballerina dancers, twirling in ocean pirouettes. sepia vinyl monoliths, ashtrays that are still smoking. crystal soprano chandelier songs, vocal chords dripping in honey. nighttime air breezing in past cellophane swathed pearl screens. lilting iridescent flutes, heartstrings wrapped around…

    "it's better to see it than to have it hide. things that hide are more dangerous and scary."

    soft, poetic, quiet and beautiful; minari is a stunning portrayal of being happy with what you have, instead of being unhappy with what you don't. a great reminder to find the satisfaction in the everyday and the mundanity of life. because after all, don't all the little things add up to be the biggest? there's magic in the normalcy, we just have…
