A most poignant and brilliant film. One of the saddest and most complex films I have seen. Wang-Kar-Wai is brilliant. He captures both Buenos Aires and Hong Kong exceptionally well. The nuances are just perfect. A must see.
I thought I was different from Po-Wing. Turns out that lonely people … are all the same.
I was told yesterday that I am a single man in love. I couldn’t agree more. I cannot let go of my ‘space’ and ‘ways’. Try as I might. Its sad, scary and probably immature too. I don’t know. when one wants to be a part of my intangible space too… I run before they can say ‘rumplestienskin’. What about when I want to just be? Living on my own has spoilt me. Tolerance levels are at their lowest. Shudder! Its so easy to give up.
When did I turn into this monster?
Where you can fall for chains of silver you can fall for chains of gold
You can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold
You promised me everything you promised me think and thin
Now you just says oh romeo yeah you know I used to have a scene with him
bhare paimaaney mein aur sharab dalogi, to paimana chhalak jaayega.
a very very very big milestone. achieved. got something i had been hoping and pining for 7 odd years. didnt think it possible for many years to come. was elated (notice the past-tense). again, nobody else was excited (sans my grandmom). my friends smiled. two of them fussed over it. not much else. some glanced at it. my mom saw it, said "it is nice". my dad didnt mention it.
i think the world sucks. or maybe my world sucks.
good thought for the day: may everyone burn in hell. amen.
