Beginners

And these fingertips, they’ll never run through your skin
Those bright blue eyes can only meet mine across a room
Filled with people that are less important than you – love love love by Of Monsters and Men

Beautiful little movie, featuring Ewan McGregor, Christopher Plummet (who won an Oscar for his role) & Melanie Laurent.

Love it when movies strike a chord somewhere deep.

There’s something that’s amazing about films, books and music. They are oftentimes someones attempt to reach out – to get a message across to you. And when you find something that touches you, something that is able to mean something to you, it becomes special.

I’ve always found that you can catch a glimpse of someone when you discuss these topics with them – what their favorites are, what it means to them and why. We are often so busy putting on a front, that we forget how to feel – at least I know I do.

I just watched I Am Love, and I know that I had just blogged about like 4 other movies earlier, but this one – this one is special.

Tilda Swinton did an amazing job, you can read scripts in her eyes – the character she carries is just so real, so heavy – not light and fleeting as though she is just acting it.

I haven’t felt this way after a movie since I watched La Vie En Rose, great stuff.

Movie week

I love getting my paws on a whole bunch of movies that I’ve been meaning to catch and then devouring them.

This week I’ve watched Easy AFriends with benefitsThe kids are all right and Midnight in Paris.

I really enjoyed all of them.

Sitting in my room, with my earphones on – its so nice to just get lost.

Midnight in Paris has to be my favorite out of the four though.

With a stellar cast (including my fav actress Marion Cotillard), I see why it’s gotten so much attention. I would definitely watch it again.

Ernest Hemingway: All men fear death. It’s a natural fear that consumes us all. We fear death because we feel that we haven’t loved well enough or loved at all, which ultimately are one and the same. However, when you make love with a truly great woman, one that deserves the utmost respect in this world and one that makes you feel truly powerful, that fear of death completely disappears. Because when you are sharing your body and heart with a great woman the world fades away. You two are the only ones in the entire universe. You conquer what most lesser men have never conquered before, you have conquered a great woman’s heart, the most vulnerable thing she can offer to another. Death no longer lingers in the mind. Fear no longer clouds your heart. Only passion for living, and for loving, become your sole reality. This is no easy task for it takes insurmountable courage. But remember this, for that moment when you are making love with a woman of true greatness you will feel immortal.

Excuse me, while I go download some smooth jazz – and get my paws on some Hemingway and Fitzgerald.
