    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...

    I love documentaries.

    Whenever I feel upset I watch them, & I realize how much worse other people have it. I love watching ones about kids in other countries.

    Reaching for the Moon blew my mind.

    The art of losing isn’t hard to master; so many things seem filled with the intent to be lost that their loss is no disaster. Lose something every day. Accept the fluster of lost door keys, the hour badly spent. The art of losing isn’t hard to master.
