“Poor as the poor I cling,
like them, to humiliating hopes;
like them, each day I nearly kill myself
just to live.”

    “And I will bring the third part through the fire,
    Refine them as silver is refined,
    And test them as gold is tested.
    They will call on My name,
    And I will answer them;
    I will say, ‘They are My people,’
    And they will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’”

    My mother walked in on me watching this and said:
    Why do you do this to yourself?

    Dark Waters

    ★★★★★

    It’s not a chahine film until:
    -Things get dark quickly then go back to normal after like 30minutes or less.
    -A good man gets assassinated for no reason and they blame an innocent guy for it.
    -A broke dude falls for rebellious playful girl.
    -Somebody goes insane for no reason.
    -Some workers unionize for some reason.
    -A woman gets stroke by the man she loves.


    But after all of this 2020 kind of chaos i did love the ending, it put a smile on my heart ❤️
