365 grateful project (count=155)

  • Hugo: Yup I cried!
  • Urbanized: DVD finally arrived and definitely worth the wait
  • Once Upon a Time in Anatolia: At Cannes, where the film won the runner-up Grand Jury Prize, it was called “Chekhovian”. We know what that means. Nothing happens, everyone talks. // Half way between – at the 70-minute stage – comes the AGM. The Absolute Great Moment. // intertwining the frayed ends of their soul. Then beauty comes in, plain and nature-gifted, and transcendence happens. This scene is cinema of utter, purest sorcery. But one could say that of the whole film.
  • Jiro Dreams of Sushi: “You have to fall in love with your job,” Ono says. “You must dedicate your life to mastering your skill.” Ono literally does dream of sushi, waking in the night with visions of better ways to serve his eel and tuna, his octopus and shrimp.
