Charge of the Life Brigade
Today feels like the beginning of the second half of my life.
2 films that have recently made strong impressions on me:
Me and You and Everyone We Know and Requiem for a Dream
Neither film is for "the squeamish"
Both tell stories that are simultaneously super-realistic and incredible
Both remind how fragile...unpredictable...horrible...complicated...and beautiful Life is.
Both make me want to live without compromise starting immediately.
Can you tell?
