Get Out

This film was an amazing, well though out, crazy, racially charged, psycho roller coaster ride. There are many things I could say about the movie but I don’t want any spoilers on this so I will just say a few words. One for my horror movie fans- this movie will deliver. I have never been more creeped out in my life! For the curious – keep a sharp eye on the subtle themes in the film. The guy running for example, just take a moment to think about that for a moment. Now obviously there will be those who want to see how Mr. Peele handles the not-so-subtle racial aspect to this film. Believe me, it stands out, but its more than that. It really speaks to what could be the essence of racism, or perhaps humanity itself, the desire to want what we cannot have. The desire to possess something or someone. I don’t know. But I think I will be thinking twice about going on any family visits with Brittany for a while- you know what I mean?

I’m In An Existential Mood

I love contemplating depth. Any depth really. The depth of life, death, love, happiness, faith. What does it all mean? I have been contemplating existence today with the thought of an age old philosophical inquiry. “If a tree falls in the woods, and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?” Logically, I would think, yes. However, this made me ponder the question of existence because I thought, if I am person that no one ever meets, do I exist? Doesn’t existence essentially mean that others “see” us? I wonder if the reason the question regarding the tree falling is not the logic of the sound it does or does not make, but more of its existence. I think we exist to connect. Without connection, we seem to fade into despair. And it is in that despair that we cry out – with no sound.

“The proof that the little prince existed is that he was charming, that he laughed, and that he was looking for a sheep. If anybody wants a sheep, that is proof that he exists.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery.

“There are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time.” – David Eagleman.


TEA and a BOOK

Red Sparrow

Today with my delicious English Breakfast Tea (with lemon)- I am reading a book which  encompasses quite a lot of different aspects. Red Sparrow tells the story of the lovely and tragic Dominika. She leads a double life in the most literal of ways, that takes many twists and turns as she tries to navigate her call to duty with her knowledge of truth. Of course she has the assistance of a man РNate who has navigational troubles of his own. They are a match made in espionage heaven. I am nearing the end of my journey in their lives but I will keep you posted. This one is a page turner albeit with a little oddity in between each chapter. I think this is one that most will enjoy as it has something for everyone- romance, spy thriller, action, drama, murder and intrigue. And I am not even at the end. Stay tuned.
