    Knight of Cups

    ★★★★★

    A drifting odyssey of consciousness
    in and out of realities heartache
    A stranger to many as all light blurs
    Is this life real? Seems to be bottomless
    Lived for others and never for myself
    Magic pearls, holy mountains lost in the
    heavens, sex, commitment is a rock that
    can’t be broken into without oneself
    Hands glisten across water and sand, birds

    Inglorious Bastards is some damn good stuff!

    Princess Mononoke = Film that takes the cake on owning the word "EPIC"

    Miyazki's animation is comprehensively voluminous in its passage . 4D. A different dimension. Seeing this in theatres for the first time last night was near life affirming. The textures are seriatim like. Each layer is individual and complex, brimming with a sympathetic conformity wise in balance and beauty. Joe Hisaishi's score echoes into the beyond, thundering emphatically like a hurricane, so lively it could bring back the…
