    This is in reality my number 4 favorite film of all time, but I was trying to be cultured and not have two Austen period films in my top 4 because I in fact have depth and am not a hopeless romantic.

    Gosh, it really is a masterpiece, isn’t it?

    My heart started pounding just before the ship hits the iceberg and didn’t stop until the end. It’s amazing that no matter how many times I watch this (I think this is about the fifth time) that I think it will turn out differently. That the ship will turn in time. That only 4 compartments will flood. That there will be enough lifeboats. That the water won’t be cold. That everything will…

But instead of saving humanity or something noble, Xavier learns to speak Spanish and how to do sex real good from a wise lesbian couple. 

    Also, this film needle drops Radiohead’s No Surprises, not once, not twice, but three glorious times. Qulle ennui!
