A Life Lesson, Lessens Life

if not when, what. if not how, where. if not things, stuff

just finished watching Jagten aka the Hunt.

all i can say without spoiling it is that it’s a fucking sad movie. brilliantly acted and written with an amazing amount of respect to victims of abuse. this film had the courage to ask extremely difficult questions and ultimately it’s a testament to just how fragile human life is

synecdoche new york is a movie i could have benefited from watching a few years ago

Synecdoche, New York (Charlie Kaufman -2008)

 I will be dying and so will you, and so will everyone here. That’s what I want to explore. We’re all hurtling towards death, yet here we are for the moment, alive. Each of us knowing we’re going to die, each of us secretly believing we won’t 

about to marathon these movies for the week

about to marathon these movies for the week

seriously boardwalk empire series is ending and it’s fucking me up right now. iv’e rarely seen a show handle death the way this one does. the meditation on each character is so sound and resolute with no loose ends left to consider, and it makes it that much harder to say goodbye to them

Say nighty-night and kiss me

Just hold my tight and tell me you’ll miss me

While I’m alone and blue as can be

Dream a little dream of me.

French animated films : Le Chat du Rabbin (Joann Sfar & Antoine Delesvaux, 2011)

English Title : The Rabbi’s Cat

The plot : French Colonies of North Africa, not-so-roaring twenties : A rabbi’s cat eats a parrot and gains the ability to speak. The rabbi immediately takes the animal away from his daughter, fearing his godless ways will corrupt her. But the cat strikes back : if the rabbi wants to make a good, proper jewish cast out of him, then he must be allowed to do his bar-mitzvah. In the meantime, a russian painter, survivor of a pogrom, is looking for a legendary jewish kingdom inhabited by black jews…

Why you should see it :

  • Adapted from the award-winning graphic novel Le Chat du Rabbin by Joann Sfar, who collaborated on the movie. It successfully mixes various plotlines from the series to give the movie some sense of direction, though “plot” would be too strong a word. It’s not so much a story than a humorous and philosophical dialog, and it really takes Sfar’s top-notch writing to make the whole thing so funny and insightful.
  • Winner of Best Movie Award at the Annecy International Animation Festival in 2011.
  • The graphic novel really comes to life in a faithful rendition of Sfar’s scratchy linework, and the animation is a work of beauty. Special mention goes to the eponymous cat, probably the most realistic yet caricatural representation of a feline I’ve seen in animation as of yet. The color schemes are especially georgous and the more dreamlike sequences are rendered with deformed surreal art styles. Who said 2D was dead ?
  • Hilarious cameo from a famous comic-book character near the end. Won’t spoil it for you, just watch.

Congratulations on the job. I didn’t know Hell was even hiring.

If my understanding is correct, Hell is one of the least discriminatory workplaces out there!
