initial





followed by




Children of Paradise is playing catch up. i was looking at the library, and i was on a screen with Rashomon, Wild Strawberries, 8 1/2, In the Mood for Love, and Children of Paradise, and i don't own any of those, so i figured i needed to work on that, and i've seen them all but i know Children of Paradise the least, saw it once in the theater, now own it on blu-ray

on the third in koker aka more than halfway done with the whole purchase (including the inland sea and the flavor of green tea over rice) that's still so worth it

ginger snaps is on the waiting docks i hear

if i reviewed home media i'd rate The Koker Trilogy 11/10 and give it my release of the year award. it's so exciting that it all came to me at once, and how wonderful it is

mm, it's from 1945 but i can't off-the-top think of a movie that depicts the complexities of love within a social reality better than Children of Paradise. and i mean complexities, as in there are movies with harsher pressures, prohibitive and obstructive dimensions etc, but Children of Paradise nails the complexities

The Great Escape?

He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.

What else could it be?
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
