    I was entirely too tired to understand what the hell this was. Going to have to rewatch at some point.

    It's been so long since I've last seen this film that I was still sufficiently confused after seeing it. But I remember now why it had such an impact on me the first time I watched it. It was the first time a movie left me thinking about what happened and what it all meant and I loved that about it. This was my introduction to film beyond movies like American Pie and Road Trip. I'm glad it's held up over time for me.

    I think maybe this one hit a little too close to home for me.

    You're not going to die. You might wish you're going to die, but you're not going to.

    This film, to me, was like going to the Louvre and seeing the Mona Lisa, realizing it's beauty and it's cultural significance, but leaving knowing that it's something I'll never want to hang on my own wall. I appreciate this film for what it is, but it just didn't do for me what it clearly has for others.
