“people here are surprised. they say new york is terrible, inhuman. perhaps they don’t really know it and are too quick to judge.”

the subway scenes are so perfect — there’s something so familiar about sitting in the subway amongst strangers when you live in a city and it always gives me this weird sense of calm. it doesn’t matter that there are always new people in the space, it feels like it belongs to you in this weird way. this film captures urban alienation/connection in such a particular way that feels almost like a confession. honestly i’m tryna pull a chantal akerman next year and just move to new york and make movies
