Jesse, Céline, and the Philosophy of Being

The truth is that I have two moods. Mood #1: “Ugh, no more sappy love stuff. There is nothing keeping these characters together other than a negligible physical attraction.” Mood #2: “This is very cute and something that I look for in life.”

Luckily, Before Sunrise fits both these moods.

In 1995, Richard Linklater introduced audiences to the American ambler Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and French student…

Raging Bull (1980, Scorsese)

'I feel sorry for you, I really do. Do you know what you should do? Try a little more fuckin' and a little less eatin' and you won't have troubles upstairs in your bedroom, and you won't take it out on me and everybody else. Do you understand you fuckin' wacko?'

Where Allen’s become a tougher case for me is how much of his work is a reminder of his confirmed and alleged personal life — the huge age gaps involved in some of the romances, the jokes about molestation and sleeping with 12-year-olds. There’s also the way his movies normalize these things — like how everyone in Manhattan shrugs or laughs off the fact that 42-year-old Isaac Davis is dating a high schooler.

Sunday morning coffee in my special cup from M-D. Hopefully this will make my headache go away.

Woke up at 5 this morning to make cherries jubilee.
I have officially lost control of my life.

mostly-alone:

Everyone keeps being like “omg haha I wanna live by the Eiffel Tower”

And like
No you don’t

That is by far the most crowded and shittiest part of France

Don’t

Demain, dès l’aube, à l’heure où blanchit la campagne,
Je partirai. Vois-tu, je sais que tu m’attends.
J’irai par la forêt, j’irai par la montagne.
Je ne puis demeurer loin de toi plus longtemps.

Je marcherai les yeux fixés sur mes pensées,
Sans rien voir au dehors, sans entendre aucun bruit,
Seul, inconnu, le dos courbé, les mains croisées,
Triste, et le jour pour moi sera comme la nuit.

Je ne regarderai ni l’or du soir qui tombe,
Ni les voiles au loin descendant vers Harfleur,
Et quand j’arriverai, je mettrai sur ta tombe
Un bouquet de houx vert et de bruyère en fleur.

Martin Scorsese :  In Raging Bull, I guess the boxing scenes have a lot to do with the action sequences in my mind. All this editing and all this camera movement that I’d been exposed to for the past 25 years or 30 years came into play in those sequences, and Hitchcock had a lot to do with it, there’s no doubt, particularly in designing the scene where Sugar Ray Robinson, in the third bout that they have, when La Motta’s on the ropes, looks up at him, and Sugar Ray comes in for the kill. And there’s a kind of edited sequence of punishment that this character’s taking. I based it on, shot by shot, the shower scene of Psycho. And so I designed it correspondingly, in a way. The glove corresponds to a knife. And so, we shot it that way.
