    I was trying to come up with what other movies I put off watching because of gifset oversaturation on tumblr dot com and all I could come up with was this and Stoker. clocked the Moldau theme from Smetana’s Ma Vlast the second it kicked in. no modern filmmaker understands classical music like Malick, and no modern moviegoer loves yelling the name of the piece of classical music like me. I love when Pitt shouts “Brahms!” otherwise moved re: love, death, space, etc.

    always funny to me in war movies when they invoke everyone’s pre-war career—e.g. “don’t do your lawyer shit—we’re at WAR” etc.— and I think about how someone will scream “don’t do your [write tweets for corporations] shit—this is WAR” at me during whatever inevitable conflict I am drafted into
