Watching something like apocalypse now, as well as a number of western war movies, u realize that they are often continuations of war and often only achieve to be denounciations of it instead of serious self critiques. Apocalypse now presents the vietnam war only through the lens of the broken American dream that exists inside of it, denouncing it through playboy shows and prostitution, fetishizing…

    Mirror

    Looking in the mirror is a revolutionary act, what was absent is now present, you look at it and you see yourself, seeing yourself, you see yourself seeing yourself, therefore, you see yourself seeing yourself seeing yourself ad infinitum. With that, the memory of yourself appears, you can relate your image to the images of other people, you are one of them. Lens are mirrors, with photography an offset of the reflection is born, you don't see yourself, the camera…

    ★★★★

    wow they actually mention people like Franz Fanon and mao Zedong and use actual terms that exist to describe the characters here, unlike the trial of the Chicago seven and its character roster consisting of "radical progressives".

    “What is life?” Is a huge fucking question, such a huge fucking question that nobody reading this can give me a satisfying answer to, I challenge you, reading this, to give me one right now in the letterboxd comments, you can’t.

Seeing Edward Yang do that in Yi Yi is one of the best…
