    β€œi see through my tears, but no one comes to wipe them away.”

    seldom does a creation delve so profoundly into the labyrinthine corridors of spiritual dogma and its terrestrial consequences, as witnessed through the prism of a seventeenth-century danish village, ensnared in the throes of witch hunts. the exploration ofΒ faith’sΒ scrutinization of divinity,Β and a contemplation of the celestial versus the carnal. suffused with both sanctity and sacrilege, anne pedersdotter’s journey becomes a mirror unto my ownΒ fractious pilgrimage with faith, one…

    β€œcat and mouse, cat and mouse! which is the cat and which is the mouse?”

    the suave demeanor, the casual lean against the mahogany bookcase, the feigned nonchalance as the champagne flutes barely tremble in their grasp;Β these are the superficial layers that belie the true complexity of brandon and philip’s performance. peer closer and one sees the subtle cracks in this faΓ§adeβ€”the eyes, those scintillating portals to the crippled soul dart with unspoken fear. whenever david kentley’s name is uttered…

    β€œthat’s the second bullet i stopped for you.”

    a shrug, a sigh, a look, a clenched fist, a gaze averted. the deliberate lighting of a cigarette, where the flicker of the match illuminates a face chiseled with the scars of past betrayals, theΒ slow exhale of smoke from parted lips tells tales of regret and yearning, each curl rising into the air like a spirit freed from the confines of its earthly bonds. innocence is not a state of being but…

    β€œyesterday, the devil thumbed another ride.”

    being at the mercy of a dangerous stranger is particularly unsettling. it’s one thing to face an impersonal threat, like natural disaster, but quite another to be under the control of a fellow human being capable of cold-blooded cruelty. to extend one’s thumb along the desolate highways is to naΓ―vely dance with fate, to ply one’s destiny with that of a stranger willingly. we constantly place our trust in unknown outcomes, in people we…

    β€œi need to know who he is. i need to stand there, i need to look him in the eye, and i need to know that it’s him.”

    there are myriad paths by which one can surrender their life to a murderer. the thought is chillingly surreal; to be a vibrant youth in the sixties, basking in the golden era’s euphoria, only to have your story end up in a hail of gunfire, your body a canvas of wounds. or…

    β€œnothing is ever as bad as it seems, sonny. every cloud has a silver lining.”

    a silent scream of laughter, a yarn spun from the loom of humor and humanity. lloyd’s character, bless his heart, is as brave as a mouse in a room full of cats, but isn’t that just a bit like all of us? in his quivering, we see our own fears, our own hesitations. he’s the king of klutz, the sultan of slapstick, the chap who’d…
