    Gotta light?

    Simply the greatest thing ever created. THE greatest. I finished all of it with my girlfriend a few days ago (my fourth watch, her first) but it has taken me a long time to get all of my thoughts together.

    The first scene of Part 1 with Cooper and the Fireman is definitely the most important as it applies to the events of Part 18. Initially the Fireman’s words to remember “Richard and Linda,” would appear he is…

    When she sees Nomi I think she definitely sees a younger version of herself. It’s a very narcissistic kind of relationship. It’s perfect - I always loved that the first time they meet each other it’s in a mirror.
    - Gina Gershon on Cristal

    Those reflections are visible from the first time Nomi sees Cristal emerging from the volcano, mastering the hand motion immediately after seeing her do it on stage. Later when Cristal takes her to lunch at the…

    At the wheel of the car closing my eyes and actually praying. Not to God above, but to you saying:
    Help me, girl
    Help me, girl
    I’ll love you till the end of the world
    With your eyes black as coal and your long, dark curls

    This has to be Top 3. It’s been so long since a film has made me feel this way. The most justified and earned epic length I’ve ever seen and I truly believe this…

    The ambulance guys, they say, “What the fuck happened here?" I say, “He come to a reapin' what he had been sowin', that's what." They say, "Fucker been sowing some kind of heavy shit.” 

    Fortunate enough to have been able to see this in theaters twice now. And tonight may have been my best viewing of the film out of all of the times. I’ve seen it. I also had a realization this evening. This story of the Lost Girl…

    To come home and be treated to this masterpiece was a blessing. What stuck out to me was when they were watching a film, and someone gets shot in the film. Leo makes a point of saying: “That’s not how it happens in real life.” And “We saw someone get shot the other day and that’s not what it looks like.” There’s definitely some critique in that. Refn is saying that the reality in movies seems to be dying out.…

    Your friend sold us out to Maas. They don’t care about Hiroshi. They swapped him, for a chance to wipe out Hosaka’s entire team. 

    Sandii....

    They turned her in Vienna. I should’ve seen it coming.

    ^ This exchange right here gives me the chills every single time. Love the slow movement over the Tokyo skyline, cross faded with X and Fox trying to leave the Hyatt hotel. 

    This is most noticeable in the scene right after they show Sandii the…
