    I will be thinking specifically of the sound of the tissue box being scraped across the desk for a long time.

    (Caroline Rose: "You're gonna cry, little girl/ They're gonna rip you apart/ They're gonna cut you wide open/ And show the whole world what you are.")

    "Where is Chantal?"

    Tying her shoes, getting up, closing the curtains, and leaving the frame as composed as she began it. Sounds continue, but their sources are offscreen.

    I don't know what drove Chantal Akerman to share so much of herself with us, but I wish I could thank her for it.

    I hope Kelly Reichardt makes beautiful, nerve-wracking films about lost souls in Oregon in every genre. Fingers crossed for a musical next.
