will watch again ASAP, but really looking forward to watching this with subtitles, to get it all in. 

HOT PROMETHEAN PLUNDER

is one of my fave utterances from this film
If I could move the night I would
And I would turn the world around if I could
There's nothing wrong with loving something you can't hold in your hand
You're sitting on the edge of the bed, smoking and shaking your head
Well there's nothing wrong with loving things that cannot even stand
Well there goes your moony man
With his suitcase in his hand
Every road is lined with animals
That rise from their blood and walk
Well the moon won't get a wink of sleep
If I stay all night and talk

One of many great lines in a film suffused with Shakespearean soliloquies.

I'm eager to dive into some of the texts (namely Moby Dick again) referenced in the credits to see how much dialogic lifting was done.

Moby-Dick is a towering literary classic thatís far different than other literary classics, such as, say, much of Mark Twain, because the golden novel is singular. so a variation on Under the Volcano, but larger than that one in this large multi-layered canvas that brings you right back to Shakespeare

so thatís a healthy pathway. for various reasons im skipping this for now but the way i look at is if it inspires elevated conversations it inspires elevated conversations. so itís cool

Film of the year for me (so far)

The precise compositions, aspect ratio, score, colorful dialogue, masturbation, humor..... Wowee super inspiring
