this album always re-enters my life once autumn hits.
"Where were you when I laid the foundations of the Earth, when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?" Job 38:4-7
found my third five-star film. close to perfect. strikingly gorgeous, perfectly matched music, covers SO much stuff that i love to see in a wholly inventive and absorbing way, absolutely poignant. not gonna forget this one. one man’s life as a microcosm for all of life; a coming-of-age story of both a boy and, well, of everything. theology and nature seamlessly intertwined in a way i ADORE. watching a family grow, with all their highs and their lows. cuts around in the way memories do: oftentimes you remember the important details but the rest is missing; sometimes you remember all the little banalities. and, ultimately, they form the story of how you got here. beautiful.
so yeah, i really did watch a buttload of films in september. 10 of my faves from the month:
12 Years a Slave, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, Grizzly Man, The Hurt Locker, Almost Famous, Three Colours: Blue, White and Red, Memories of Murder, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance
all highly recommended. Three Colours: Red def. my fave of the bunch (#3 ever tbh), with Memories of Murder and Grizzly Man the next best two. Memories of Murder is veeery similar to True Detective, but a lot funnier. well worth a shot.
Sympathy for Lady Vengeance (2005)
loved loved loved this. much more than Mr Vengeance or Oldboy, tbh.
