    I was watching My Blueberry Nights

    and it made me think a lot, especially about a topic that seems to recur here on EP, namely breakups, broken hearts, lost loves, and starting over. Besides just loving Wong Kar Wei's style including both visuals and soundtrack, I really loved the characters in this film. I find...

    The Perks of being a Wallflower left me feeling

    like I could conquer the world. The character Charlie stole my heart. Both the book and the movie made my cry.

    There is weakness in watching films

    that make us sit, wander beyond, imagine our lives feeling, a livelihood that lightens our hearts and senses. We are glued, seeing, believing and wondering what is to happen and become next. There is a film I was taken by earlier today, I imagined how the main character felt...

    Although completely confusing it makes you realise how utterly pointless and lonely this life is.

    (I wrote this a while ago.

    Lost in Translation with Bill Murray

    and Scarlet Johansson is a film that i watched a million times. It's a simple story about loneliness and how two people get connected with each other because they're sharing the same issue. I think the fact I'm a lonely person made the film affect me in a way most films don't.

    I love Into the Wild

    for just this reason. I think sometimes about materialism as a sickness, an epidemic that no one seems to be able to break free from. We all sit in public places whilst staring into our phones and all I'm thinking is that I'm looking up into a void of humanity, I only see robots...

    so ordinary. I want a thrill of something. Zombie apocalypse perhaps? Kidding. Just not world ending kind of thrill. Just need that rush of excitement of some sort. Ordinary is safe, but boring.

    I watched "The Departed" a few days ago.

    I'd heard several times that it was a really good film but had been put-off by a number of things: firstly that it's a remake, and I've not seen the original; secondly that I'm not a huge fan of Scorcese, especially when he's doing a gangster film. Watching it made me think...

    Watched "Garden of words" today.

    It just stopped me. Made me pause for a while and question what I'm doing in life. Made me think about all the decisions I've made. All the people I've let go whom I'll never see again. I'm just sitting here now wishing it would rain again.
