    I had a nightmare about you last night.

    Those anxieties, those feelings of remorse, regret, angst, guilt, fear, pain, they all erupted in a sort of half-shaped monster in my mind, feeding off of the misery. And what's worse is, you were the monster.

    But worst of all, you were real. No longer were you an apparition of my mind and my pain. You were a ghost with flesh and bones; the worst kind. That wasn't you, though, was it?…

    Thousands of years ago, before the Romans and in the midst of the Greeks, a man named Zoroaster is born in modern-day Iran. He begins, unsurprisingly, the religion that came to be known as Zoroastrianism. This is a religion, a philosophy, that encompasses the universe. It challenges the ancient notions of non-individuality in our relationship to god/the gods; instead, it often leaves the moral decision up to the soul and the heart.

    i love the small details so much. i love when there's a shot and even though the focus might be on don you can see cosmo or kathy or anyone really expressing entire universes of emotion. not once do any of the actors break characters, even in the background of a scene. it's a rare movie that actually holds its energy for the full running time, completely unbridled. this is a great movie.

    I sometimes feel so absolutely alone in the world. Like I'm sitting in a house in a town in a county in a state in the middle of nowhere. I am the center of my own life, yet I always feel like the real center is thousands of miles away. Each car that drives past my window, each family walking their dog. Every drop of rain, every whisper from the wind. Life is so fleeting, and I feel like I'm…

    I was NOT expecting to be deeply personally affected by a 3-hour 1960s Russian black and white movie - from a notoriously difficult director - about a 15th century icon painter, but here we are. This was incredible.

    "In cinema it is necessary not to explain, but to act upon the viewer's feelings, and the emotion which is awoken is what provokes thought," said Tarkovsky himself in 1962. I am going to take this to heart, and write about what…
