    Fantastic. Might top X-2 for me. Glad Singer is doing the next instalment, too.

    "We are only here briefly, and in this moment I want to allow myself joy."

    "... but it's in this endless space between the words that I'm finding myself now."

    Thank you Spike Jonze for creating a romance that speaks to our time, as well as our future. Thank you to the actors and everyone involved in capturing with grace, this love letter on screen through these arresting characters, whom I could see bits of me in each one.

    Fantastic, stupendous, moving, reeling, surprising, heartbreaking, delightful... I could go on. Thank you, thank you, and thank you again!

    Requiem for a Dream 2000

    ★★★★★ Watched 23 Feb, 2013

    There are some films that render you speechless, and this is one of them. Morning after, yet I'm still reeling from yesterday's viewing. Heartbreaking and tragic, yet hopeful in its rebirth at the finale.

    Gravity 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 05 Nov, 2013

    Incredibly stressful, yet breathtaking. My heart was pounding just as fast during the silence as it did during the more relentlessly chaotic scenes. By the time the credits rolled around, my mouth hung agape and I felt I had reached a catharsis.

    Of all the films I've watched, this is the first one where 3D plays an integral part, and not your common "it's there because we can" variety; paired with the seemingly effortless camera movements, it was an experience like no other.

    I'm listening to the gorgeous soundtrack right now, and the silence is swelling.
