Someone said it could be good,

but no one would own up to having said it.

out of context.

I have a job.

There's nothing I like less

than bad arguments for a view that I hold dear.

The name is only important if, in knowing it,

things become more clear.

It's not real. It's the movies.

Beyond the Sea - 6/10. Has no idea what it wants to be. Starts off almost deconstructionist, but that very quickly turns into a gimmick turns into a flight-of-fancy musical turns into a this-happens-and-then-this-happens chain of events straight-faced biopic. It can't figure itself out and so leaves us without a sense of who he is. Maybe that's the point. I don't know.

Is the sea.

Spirited Away - 7.5/10. I've got the same problem with Miyazaki that I have with Almodovar: I enjoy watching their movies and they leave me not knowing what the fuck they were all about. To their credit, I'd rather blame myself than them.

Everything new

Babel - 3.5/10 - This movie fucking sucked.

A repeated insistence

that this is not a life.

If you don't understand,

then you're not him, are you?

to describe a feeling.

It is easy to tell art is successful

if the art itself is the best way to articulate its own purpose or qualities.

What now?

You keep going.

Thanks for the adventure.

Up - 8/10. Even the fucking short made me tear up.
