[this is kind of a review wrapped into a long profile of Mike Mills, The National, and Alicia Vikander. but long story short the film is beautiful and you should watch it]
The National were supposed to take a break. They sure as hell deserved one. After 20 years of tirelessly burnishing their reputation as the country’s most consistent rock band — after selling almost 1 million records, becoming President Obama’s de facto campaign soundtrack, and laying down the definitive rendition of “The Rains of Castamere” along the way — a little time off sounded like a good idea. The National had just released “Sleep Well Beast,” their emotionally fraught seventh album, and this traveling circus of middle-aged dads was…
"I used to fall asleep to you talking to me
I don't listen to anything now
Nothing to do with us
I'm just so tired of thinking about everything
I'm not afraid of being alone
I just don't know what to do with my time
Between you and me,
I thought it would all last a little while longer
"But I'm learning to lie here in the quiet light
While I watch the sky go from black to grey
Learning how not to die inside a little every time
I think about you and wonder if you are awake
"You don't know anything
I think about you way more than anything else
I'm not that spiritual
I still go out…
Feeling big, small, scared, at ease
For a film to make me cry is quite an achievement. I have the tendency to keep emotions inside and to myself instead of just throwing them out like that but for a 26-minute short film to make me choke up numerous times throughout by using nothing more than images, sounds, and texts, is nothing short of amazing.
Mike Mills short film I Am Easy to Find is something close to a music-video but like most experiments in that medium these days, not quite like it at all. For example, the short isn’t structured around one specific song or an entire album; instead, it uses fragments of songs from the band The…
mike mills is such a wonderful storyteller ah that's poetry luv x
Made me feel.
Reflect on my life.
Think about mom, dad.
Think about past lovers.
Do I want to have kids?
They'll eventually abandon me.
Need to say sorry, I haven't been a good son.
She is an only child, she would have felt better if she had a sibling.
The one thing I can't live without.
Sometimes I want to die.
But most of the times, I love life.
Love the nature.
Love falling in love.
I want to live.
I am easy to find.
does anyone think depression is a good thing? i love the national. i think they are really interesting artists.
Life as a cycle
Kumpulan momen-momen kehidupan dari awal nafas berhembus hingga akhir jiwa manusia. Dengan warna black-white yang digunakan dalam film berdurasi sekitar 30 menit ini, terasa layaknya sebuah memori yang berputar kembali. Meskipun rata-rata dari kita masih berada di waktu pertengahan waktu kehidupan, sebagian dari jiwa seperti mengulang kembali masa lalu dan meraba-raba masa depan yang belum terbentuk selama film ini berputar.
Ada waktu kita mulai berjalan dan akan ada waktu untuk kita berhenti.
Were there more clouds when she was a child?
wasn't gonna cry but then boyfriend walked in a couple seconds after the film ended and told me he just wanted to check up on how i was doing and then i started tearing up lol
man, i don't know. i'd love to see what so many others are seeing in both this and the record that it accompanies, but everything about this project has left me pretty cold. vikander's performance is admirable, but the story doesn't strike me as particularly engaging or affecting, and the music (which i admittedly don't like much out of context) is used in a way that's often pretty haphazard and has little to do with the onscreen action. the whole multimedia idea is cool, but it seems to go in too many disparate directions to focus on any one thing being good
A 24-minute short film of the eighth studio album by American indie rock band, "The National", roots around the inscrutable and insurmountable of life cycle. It invites for contemplation of the temporary existence and eternally reminiscence.
La vida me da miedo.
El paso del tiempo nos aplasta sin piedad. Necesito un abrazo.
The National y Mike Mills han conseguido capturar la esencia de toda una vida y han creado un lugar seguro al que acudir.
this is some next level art
over the threshold,
over and over
again into oblivion
A vida é cheia de detalhes. São as pequenas coisas que dão a ela sentido. São as pequenas coisas que realmente fazem tudo valer a pena. O tempo passa, mais rápido do que desejamos, e devemos estar sempre atentos aos detalhes . Aproveitar os momentos e saber dar valor. Dar atenção aos nossos sentimentos e tentar não nos enganar. Tomar as decisões mesmo que não tenhamos certeza, afinal quem tem certeza de alguma coisa? Ser mais emoção do que razão é a resposta certa. Um dia, todas as vivências serão apenas lembranças, então que elas sejam as melhores possíveis.
